1993 Nissan Micra 1,0L 998cc


High Class Miniature


Replaced the front brakes at 109,00Km`s

Got the wheels balanced to cure a high speed steering wobble.

The heater only works on high speed fan setting.

Had to recently replace the rear brake cylinders to get through the M.O.T.

General Comments:

Great fun car to drive and throw around country lanes.

Excellent performance for such a small engine.

Good economy and excellent reliability, never fails to start first time!

The seats can be a little uncomfortable on long hauls.

No intermittent wipe, or low oil lamp!

But on the whole, a super very fun reliable runaround.

The problem with cabin fan blower working only on the highest speed is a common fault to all my Japanese cars (not sure about others).

There is small circuit board under the fan blower secured with 2 screws; it has one resistor soldered on it. I have just put it out and short bricked all possible positions (there are 5 pins on connector) with a soldering iron, and it works on my wife's 4 Micras.

It also works on an old Primera.

A fun package that's solidly reliable


Besides topping up the oil, nothing at all.

General Comments:

This car is a joy to drive, like a fairground go-kart.

I have had great fun driving this car, and it has never failed to start first time!

It does although lack a few basic functions, that can prove irritating.

There is no intermittent wipe.

The outside mirrors cannot be adjusted from inside the car!

There is no warning light to tell you when the oil level is low.

Despite these drawbacks, I still would highly recommend this car to anybody looking for a first time runabout.

1986 Nissan Micra GL 1.0


A small, reliable car, also suitable for longer rides


Fuel filter was cloaked, shock absorber had to be replaced, brakes needed repair.

General Comments:

This car is really a reliable car, it ran over 220.000 kilometres, but still does a fabulous job. The gasoline-consumption is very small (about 5 litres per 100 km!!!). This car has also very comfortable seats and a good heating-system.

The Micra is easy to handle and may be driven fast around curves.
