Ownership cost

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

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

You'll be able to snap up a Primera for surprisingly little dosh.

The diesel engines are the best for fuel economy - you can reckon on getting more than 45mpg - but they're more expensive to buy, so you'll have to rack up a fair few miles before the better fuel economy claws back the higher asking price.

Over lower mileages, the 1.8 petrol makes the most sense. It's cheapest to buy, but still good for mid-30s to the gallon, whereas the 2.0 will return about 5mpg fewer.

Servicing isn't quite such a bargain. The Ford Mondeo, Mazda 6, Peugeot 407, Toyota Avensis and Vauxhall Vectra are all cheaper to service.
