    My car

    I bought this car for its reliability and running costs. What a laugh, the worst car I have ever owned. Faults galore which main dealers could not solve. Major engine failure culminating in new engine just out of warrenty. Nissann were extremley unhelpful. Never again will I buy a Nissan!

    My car

    I never intended to buy a Nissan Primera.Originally I was looking

    at a Mondeo estate,but I saw the Primera advertised on the Web,so decided to have a look.My first impression was how big it was.Open the tailgate, and it,s got a huge load area.When it came to driving I was pleased to see the drivers seat went back far enough for me. Being over 6-4inches tall i have a job finding cars that are comfortable to drive,but this one proved no problem.The dash layout takes a bit of getting used to,as the dials are in the middle above the computer screen,and not directly behind steering wheel.Also the handbrake is further over to the left than other cars.As for the ride its not bad.With plenty of lowdown torque theres plenty of go for overtaking.Fuel economy is good at 50+ on a long run.I,ve had this car over 2 years now without any problems.

    My car

    I bought this Nissan thinking - cheap to run, reliable.

    Turbo wastegate failed at 23,000 miles - 5 days to fix.

    MPG is worse than advertised - I've got around 33 around town and 45 if you are light footed on motorway.

    It reminds me of Austin Rover cars e.g. Princess.
