Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

5 out of 5

Great value. Good package when bought new.

Costs

5 out of 5

Petrol (obviously), windscreen wipers and an indicator bulb. That's all really.

Driving

4 out of 5

Neutral handling, not bad for a small car.

Performance

4 out of 5

Suprisingly nippy for a 1.0. Can't complain.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Like a vehicular swiss watch. One indicator bulb went and that's it in all the time we've had it and it's now done 21,000. Brilliant.

People who aren't in the know rate it as a shopper's car. Utter rubbish! Great car if you give it a chance.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Seats a bit firm, but equally as good for long and short journeys.

Security

4 out of 5

In-built immobiliser. Not the most wanted of vehicles by the light-fingered brigade.

Service

4 out of 5

Now use independant as car is out of warranty. Not a problem though.

Problems

Bodywork
No problems. Well put together.

Engine
Diamond. No problems at all. Nippy and responsive for a 1.0, frugal too.

Gearbox
Generally smooth. 1st sometimes a bit stiff but that's typical of the Micra. No problems at all.

Other
Just 'does what it says on the can'. Very easy to live with. Just don't buy a purple one!
