What used Nissan Primera estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Nissan Primera estate?

In customer satisfaction surveys, running costs are one of the biggest complaints from Primera owners, but they're really no worse than those of most family estates.

Prices aren't too steep, although you'll pay a chunk extra for a diesel version - and that means it only makes sense if you cover lots of miles. The diesels sip their fuel at an official average of 46mpg to 48mpg, which is on a par with their rivals. Go for the 1.8 petrol and you can expect it to return mid 30s with normal use, while the 2.0 typically gives low 30s.

Typical service costs are likely to be cheaper than for estate versions of the Citroen C5 and on a par with the Ford Mondeo's.
