Slow, handles like a pram. I hate it. Gearchange is particularly awful. Brakes tend to lock up too easily aswell.

Nissan Micra (93-02)

Excellent economy, insurance and tax.

Performance

2 out of 5

Poor compared to other 1.0L's I driven. Feels strained at 70 mph, but will do 80 if you can stand it. Standing starts difficult, either bogs down or spins wheels.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Actually not that good, had difficult to trace starting problem, big headache. Turned out to be ignition barrel, but took Nissan dealer a while to find.

Very bad if you're a bloke.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Excellent refinement for small car (as long as you don't go over 65mph), reasonable space, good seats.

Security

2 out of 5

None. Put anything of value in the boot. Unlikely target for joy riders though.

Service

4 out of 5

Pretty good on whole, cheap costs and courtesy car provided for service. Didn't fix starting problem first time though and a part I ordered never seemed to arrive.
