    My car

    This car has excellent road-holding and grip (2.0 Sport version). Its fuel consumption is outstanding - it never falls below 35mpg and easy to exceed 40mpg even on a shortish run (38mpg at 80mph!).

    It doesn't feel as sophisticated as some competitors, and the engine is rather gruff (not a patch on a Honda unit).

    However, as a used car, it is impossible to find a better blend of peformance, economy, reliability and space at such a low price. I paid under £5000 from a Nissan dealer for a three-year-old car with only 25,000 miles on the clock.

    My car

    My dad drove the car and it was mainly him that owned it, but I know that our whole family very much enjoyed the it. Ours was a 1998 S-reg one with a 1.6 engine (and I think it was a GX).

    None of us had any complaints and we did not have any problems while owning the car. From a passenger's point of view, the back seats were spacious and very comfortable as were the front seats.

    It was a very good buy and I would recomend it for anyone looking for a family car because boot space was again very good. I do not know what it's like from a driver's point of view, but my dad found the car very comfortable.

    My car

    This car will trounce many a boy racer while in air-conditioned comfort.

    The leather driver's seat showed wear from an early age, and trim rattles can be annoying. Unquestionable reliability and anonymous performance is a huge bonus. Fuel consumption is reasonable, 28-38mpg depending on driving style.

    I love this car, and after 18 months it's still suprising owners of Lexus IS200s etc. I can't fault it for the money.

    My car

    I've always liked Primeras but I've got to say that I love my 1997 Primera GT, the ride is enjoyable with nice comforts, the engine is just nicely responsive and the running costs are averagely good.
