Nissan Micra 1.0 Tempest 3d (98) (1998/R) - Owner Review

Best to drive around town. Nippy at slow speeds but very sluggish up hill and at speed. Heavy steering -could do with power steering.

Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought new for £9,000, has hardly cost anything other than service since.

Costs

Heavy on petrol on the motorway - does not quite live up to its stated mpg. 7th year service was the first one that required any additional work doing.

Performance

3 out of 5

Sturdy and solid car, handles really well. Dodgy in slippery or icy conditions.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Very reliable but jumpy on cold mornings now it is 7 years old. Engine has flooded twice when starting up and driving short distances thus it broke down. RAC needed to restart - apparently a common problem with Micras
