Nissan Micra 1.0 L 3d (1994/L) - Owner Review

Go-kart like handling and quick gear change make for easy(ish) acceleration. Make sure you don't throw it into a corner though, you'll know about it...

Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Well treated examples keep their value a little higher than most...

Costs

3 out of 5

Dirt cheap on petrol, but parts can cost quite a bit. Don't smash it!

Performance

4 out of 5

Probably the quickest 1.0 there is. Put your foot down to the floor and leave Mondeos standing.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Suppose it hasn't broken down...yet.

This rating would be higher if I had a Super S body kit. It's a bit girlie really.

Comfort

2 out of 5

Not bad for a trip down the shops, but anything beyond that and you'll need aromatherapy. Harsh ride and very uncomfortable seats. Also I'm sure I've got taller since I first started driving it.

Security

2 out of 5

This was a plain zero till I fitted my own alarm and immobiliser. Central locking you say? What's central locking?

Service

1 out of 5

None - brought from private trader.

Problems

Bodywork
Prone to minor dents and stone chips, unless someone's being doing it on purpose all along...

Engine
Not bad actually, but makes a hideous rattling noise that's had all the garages baffled.

Gearbox
Has started to become slighlty stiff, but then again it is due for an oil change.

Other
Not yet, but I'm on my guard...
