Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Nissan Micra hatchback?
Some versions of the Micra use light colours on bits of the dashboard and seats to brighten up the interior and make it a more pleasant place to spend time. However, if you don’t keep the car clean, it can begin to look grubby in places, so check for any marks and stains.
Insecure ignition switch wiring harness
A total of 1615 Micras are said to have been affected by insecure ignition switch wiring. This could cause the engine to shut down unexpectedly and not restart – in extreme cases. This recall was issued in 2017 and can be fixed (at no cost) by having your local Nissan dealer rework the ignition switch retaining latch.
Incorrect masses on VIN label
Some Micras – a total of 1985, according to a 2019 recall – might have had their masses applied on their VIN labels incorrectly. To fix this problem, the VIN label needs to be replaced with a new one; your local Nissan dealer can do this for you at no cost.
