Nissan Micra (93-02)

Value

5 out of 5

I got an ex motability with 9000 miles (FSH) a year ago for only £4300.

Costs

5 out of 5

Cheap to insure, tax and I get 44mpg.

Driving

3 out of 5

Bit noisy on motorway, cornering not the best, quite fun to drive around town.

Performance

5 out of 5

For a 1 litre it's suprisingly quick away from the lights, overtaking out of town is good for such a wee engine.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Watch for the standard nissan-fit NGK spark plugs failing, they"re rubbish (according to my mechanic!). I changed them for champions and have had no probs since.

The GX isn't that bad, colour-coded, nice wheel trims, sunroof all help it look a bit more credible.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Pedals feel a bit offset, seats are comfy enough though.

Security

4 out of 5

No break-ins yet (touch wood), immobiliser with visible LED helps I think.

Service

1 out of 5

No dealings with them as yet

Problems

Bodywork
Paint chips fairly easily, no rust though.

Engine
Nissan-fitted NGK spark plugs failed, apparently this is not uncommon.
