2003 Nissan Almera Visia 1.5 16v

Summary:

Recommended for slow drivers

Faults:

Noise from the front end.

Dirty fuel intake.

Oil consumption.

General Comments:

The noise from front end comes from a thrust bearings on both shock absorbers, which needs to be replaced.

The car was working bad on minimum gas, the cause was a dirty fuel intake, which was fixed in a half and hour (cleaning + reset of the car's computer), which cost 70 euros. The car consumes a lot of oil because of the worn piston rings.

Generally, car is built very good. Really quiet while driving. Fuel consumption is amazing for a petrol engine - 5.7 l/100km during summer and 6.8 l/100km during winter (mostly on motorways). Very comfortable and not made for high speeds, since the engine is quite sleepy. Accelerations are very slow, though it can be driven 150-160km/h at really low noise and stable on the road.

Car is ideal for people who like a comfortable, reliable, quiet and economic car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
