Nissan Micra (93-02)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
umm nothing out of the ordenary

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
good little practical car, quite nippy for a 1.0

Would you buy this car again and why?
no. purely because the engine is adequate, but nothing special. that said i would get the 1.3 model. BEWARE though that it is 16v and as such the insurance for a 18/19 yr old lad is quite unreasonable.

What are you likely to buy next?
looking as something with a 1.6, probably an almera or a golf

What's it like to drive?
like a springy gokart the 1.0 engine is more than enough for around town, on the motor way can easily handle 75 crusing speed although will struggle to do anything significantly more.

easy to park, very small can park most places
