We had this car new in September 2005 and it is a low milage second car.
The only problems todate have been a noisy electric window and faulty a door catch. The later was potentially dangerous as the passenger door swung open whilst driving.
It holds the road well and has a lively and responsive engine. The overall quality is reasonably good and we like the way the rear seat slides forward to give a larger boot area. The main dislike is the fact that the rear seat backs don't fold completely flat, which severely reduces load capacity.
The car is great fun to drive.
I enjoy my Nissan Micra. When I bought the car in Cardiff Wessex garage about 3.5 years ago they told me it was a 1.2 SE Extra- the extra's being e-sun roof, leather steering wheel and Alloy wheels. The Micra is very roomy inside - I'm on the big side and there's loads of room. It's lovely to drive too. The technology's good. The only faults are: the windows rattle if they are not all the way up or down; I had a faulty boot switch and faulty reversing light switch, which just cost me £209 to have repaired. The faulty boot switch was quite dangerous as it was release the boot whilst I was driving. I've read a few reviews on the Internet and there seems to be a common fault with the Micra's boot switch. However, overall it's a good car with loads of room inside. The only other fault is that the leather steering wheel has started disintergrating. I bought the car from new (75 miles on clock), so I know that none of the faults are through negligence. I also get my car serviced every 9k as advised.
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.
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.
