I swapped my C2 1.4 Furio for the 05 Micra as I started to carry a full load of passengers to work every day as the C2 was impractical.
I bought it from a Car Supermarket and it was called Micra Sport. Over the S model, it has alloy wheels, colour coded mirrors and a rear spoiler.
I find the start-up to be especially noisy, but contacted the Nissan dealer who said this was due to oil pressure building up on the Camchain tensioner - we'll see. Once started the engine settles down to a quietish hum, though not a quiet as the C2. The engine is also revvy, doing 3500 at 70mph.
Economy is very good, getting 40+mpg with spirited driving. Space is superb for a supermini with room for four "good-sized" adults. The sliding rear seat is a real boon. Equipment is good with all the convenience you need. The dash is drab and I have fitted the silver vent trim which has made a big difference.
Overall I really love the car. It looks great, seems well finished and has plenty of room for my 6'3" 18 stone frame. Next car? Micra 160SR 5dr.
Super little car. Our 1.2 SX 5DR is a 2003 model and has been great since we bought it in February 05.
The car is superbly equipped, with climate control, CD player and keyless go, leather seats and sporty alloy wheels, foglights and a spoiler.
The insurance is very cheap in group three, it's cheap to run and is very nippy.
The rear space isn't great and the boot is very small, but up front there is plenty of room.
Also, the car is noisy compared with our Mondeo, but is fine for its size. It's really easy to drive, very light on the steering and has a good ride, a nice gearbox and good engine response.
Overall, the car is a super little vehicle, it has been reliable and seems very well built too.
This car is well equipped, well built, nice to drive and has excellent mid-range performance.
Its style may take some getting used to, but it's an excellent car in every respect, and great value too.
I bought my wife a brand new Micra in March, and we are absolutely delighted with it. It's nimble, easy to drive, and we know it's safe for the children to be in.
We both agree it makes us smile!
