Nothing at all. When I bought the Micra, it was already 12 years old, and I kept it for 2 more years without any problem at all.
It was a wonderful car. I gave it to my wife in order not to sell it. I was very sad in the end that I had to let it go.
The only minor issue was that I am a big boy, and it was a small car for me. Great handling.

The worst car you can buy... Avoid it
Everything went wrong with this car!
11000 Km Sensors
23000 Km Valve Problems
51000 Km Sensors
59000 Km Sensors
61000 Km Engine Problem.
This car sucks! It is simple the worst car anyone can buy. I was so dissapointed by this car that I will never buy Nissan again. I bought it because I liked the look, but it's only design... Many problems forced me to sell it after 3 years... Wish never had bought it...

You have all these problems because Nissan have got into bed with Renault using a lot of their engines. All the diesels are Renault as is your engine. The 1.8 in the Tino is still a 100% Nissan engine. Well done Nissan for ruining their reputation by getting involved with crappy Renault.
The 1.2s are petrol and Nissan engines, while the 1.5 diesels are Renault engines.
I don't see anywhere in the above review a mention of a diesel 1.5 engine... only a reference to 1.2 size. I wish people would read rather than let their own experiences cloud their comments.
I have a Nissan 1.2 and a Renault Laguna V6, and both are fine examples of modern engineering. A lot of my friends have more trouble with their Japanese assembled cars than I have ever had with my Renault. O2 sensors, ABS lights, etc, etc have lit up in Japanese cars just as frequent as any Euro car.
I think though the dealers have a lot to answer for. I think servicing gets left to the apprentices, as perhaps the experienced mechanics are doing more involved repairs to more problematic cars which require their skills. Things are not picked up then as they should in routine servicing.
1989 Nissan Micra k10 1.0
A reliable small economy car with performance and comfort for those who like smart cars ; -)
I have just replaced distributor.
Some noises from the plastic parts of the car's interior.
Fast accelerating for an one liter engine.
Big cabin although it's small size.
Cheap to run.
Fun to drive (i like the sound when I rev it up)
The seats don't keep you good at the corners.
I would like it more powerful and lowered with alloy wheels!
Parts for the car here are expensive for it's size.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I think the nissan micra is a very reliable car in which I find mechanically superb, I have an 86 k10 in which time very minor things have been done, the exterior looks brilliant with a body kit, which was fairly easy to fit, out of 10 I give this car 8.
