    My car

    I bought this car from Arnold Clark in Perth in Oct 2007. The car is a 2004 model nissan micra. I do not have a high milage output. in the last year I have only done nearly 4thousand miles (low avr.) The car has full history of services. in the last six month have had to replace the timing chain and new sensors as well as new spark plugs. I would be interested if anybody else has experienced similar problems Milage is now 36350 which is not high for the age of the car. The car cost to buy was near £5000. and it has have so far cost me £1000 this does not inclued service and MOT & tax.

    My car

    I currently have a Micra 2005. I have owned it for six months and I absolutely love it. The only thing is I have been told it needs £800 spending on it and so I have to get rid of it as I cannot afford to repair it. I am devasted. The drive is faultless, it's so comfy and the petrol just lasts and lasts. I am having to swap the finance from this car onto another. I would have loved to get another Micra but couldn't find one I can afford so I am picking up my 2006 Peugeot 107 this week. I am not looking forward to it greatly as I will miss my little Micra. The only bad point I can say is the rear seat space is really bad and not suitable for an adult to sit in. After seeing the rear space in the 107, I was suprised it was so much bigger. But the rear space in the Micra is obvously compensated for the larger boot.

    My car

    I drove this model,with only 2500 miles on the clock for a week covering over 600 miles.Around town it's not so bad,easy to steer,nice gearshift and acceptable acceleration.Fuel consumption was amazing at 65mpg.The cabin is spacious and put together meticulously but the mass of black plastic isn't easy on the eye.The seats are awful but the visibility is second to none.So far,so good.Then onto the motorway,the engine noise at anything over 60mph requires ear plugs.Simply impossible to live with.Can i suggest Nissan explores soundproofing? I was glad to give it back.

    My car

    I just put a deposit down on a used Micra and I cant wait to collect it.The equipment is outstanding and I got a great deal from Westway Nissan in Manchester.Its comfortable and nippy and great value.The only downside for me was my insurance quote which wasnt as cheap as my Group 6 Focus Zetec.Maybe it will be cheaper next year? I recommend Westway Manchester.
