Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

5 out of 5

For what you get it's an outstanding little car.

Costs

4 out of 5

I get around £40 to the gallon and the cheap insurance was a godsend while I was building up a no claims bonus.

Driving

4 out of 5

It's really easy to drive, and very forgiving of silly mistakes. A perfect first car.

Performance

3 out of 5

It's only a little dot, so you're not going to get fantastic acceleration and power, but it is VERY nippy and I've been a few lairy Volkswagen G olf driver off at the lights.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Never let me down in four years. I abused her terribly too, and she just kept on trucking.

It looks a bit like a Metro that's eaten all the pies. It's cute, definitely a girls car.

Comfort

4 out of 5

My 6"ft other half never had a problem getting comfortable in it, except if he was driving on a long journey.

Security

4 out of 5

It has an immobiliser, but that's about it. The best security is the fact that no-one want to steal a Micra or it's stereo.

Service

3 out of 5

Never needed to use it.

Problems

Bodywork
Scuffs kinda easily, but touch up kits and replacement body panels are cheap.

Engine
No problems at all.

Gearbox
It's a little stiffer than most people like, but I've had no problems.

Other
I wouldn't be getting rid of it if it wasn't for the fact that I have such a basic model. Nissan earned a lot of brand loyalty from me and I've replaced her with the New Micra and it's whistles and bells.
