Great value - can pick 96 models up for around £2000.

Some dealer parts quite expensive. I myself get my parts second hand.

Performance

Very nippy off the lights for a 1.3i, feels like a bigger engine.

Been fine last 2 years, only needed tune up and regular oil/filter changes.

I think image is quite good, especially my SR and the super S model looks great with alloys.

Sport seats are very comfortable, driving position feels good.

Security

2 out of 5

Not too keen on factory immobiliser as they are quite weak. Would have been better if fitted with alarm as well.

Service

2 out of 5

My local dealer is hopeless - they always give you the wrong info and some staff are awfully rude.

Problems

Panels easily scrape and dent.

Engine
No problems with engine. Very quiet and smooth.

Noisy gearbox common prob on Micras. Had it checked and it's ok.

Other
Suffer badly with (throttle body/MAF sensor probs), starting probs, poor brakes on none ABS models and the odd interior rattle, also a knocking noise from below your feet possible the steering rack, happened in my old Micra Super S.
