Nissan Micra (93-02)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Young, newer driver, and can't afford the insurance on a bigger car! I don't mind it though for the time being.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Some don't mind, others think it has a negative stereotyped image. Most are indifferent.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not now that I have owned one already, but it's a car that I don't particularly mind having. If anything, I would rather have got a 1.3 than the 1.0 litre that I do have.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something with a a bigger engine, a Ford Focus possibly.
