Advice for buyers

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

Take a bow, Sunderland. The people at Nissan's factory there built the Primera to run and run, so it's generally a tough bit of kit and solidly screwed together. A good service history is still very desirable, though.

Claims made by Warranty Direct customers are almost exclusively for electrical, suspension and axle faults. The climate control is an area of particular concern, so give that a proper test because it will be pricey to fix.
