Advice for buyers

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

Generally, the Primera is a robust, reliable car capable of high mileages if it's serviced on time, so look for a caring owner (the Primera tends to attract them) brandishing a wad of old service receipts.

That said, give the alloy wheels a close examination - they can be prone to corrosion. Also, ensure the climate control blows hot and cold with reasonable force, as it can be expensive to put right. And, while you're at it, check that all the electrical kit works.
