Summary:

High Class Miniature

Faults:

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.

Summary:

A fun package that's solidly reliable

Faults:

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.

Summary:

A small, reliable car, also suitable for longer rides

Faults:

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.
