Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Nissan Primera estate?

We've heard reports of clutches and turbos causing problems on the 2.2 dCi diesel, and owners also highlight faults with the suspension - a weak area on the previous generation of Primera, too.

Clutch and turbo trouble should be easy to spot on a test drive. As for the suspension, listen for clonks and knocks; be suspicious if there is uneven tyre wear and ensure the car tracks straight, corners tidily and remains firmly consistent over bumps.
