Nissan Pixo (09-13)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
The guys gone mad! Previous car was a 2008 Ford Mondeo TDCI and now he's in a Pixo.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They haven't said anything on the subject. I like to think it's a very nice looking small car and should score points on the 'eco' front.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No. Once I have finished pooring money into my house renovation I will go back to something a bit bigger.

What are you likely to buy next?
Qashqai, Yeti, Kuga etc.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Its fantastic in town due to its size and being nippy away from traffic lights etc. It's great fun on country roads as it handles great and is fun to rev hard (the engine has a great note when pushed). On faster roads it can keep pace suprisingly well.

What's it like to park?
A breeze of course! Its very small and has a tiny turnig circle.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing has gone wrong as yet. The drivers seat back seemed a little slanted to one side (perhaps a chubby previous owner!) resulting in back pain on longer journeys. Problem easily solved by bending the seat frame back into position.

What's most practical about your car?
It runs on fresh air. 375 miles to £40 worth of fuel is easily doable.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Centre Arm Rest (Official Suzuki Alto Accessory - Alto and Pixo are identical inside). Makes the car feel more upmarket and adds to comfort. Air Conditioning is very effective also.
