1997 Nissan Primera GX 1.6
Great car - no luxury
Something fastening the front wheel had to be changed.
Windows do not keep 100% closed the last year I owned it and in very bad weathers in Iceland it would become wet inside, I did not fix it before I sold it.
Automatic door lock for the rear seat broke the same thing happened in my 2001 primera.
It is still running in year 2006 as I saw it on the street the other day.
Great car, but as it was not a hatchback the boot was not very good I would recommend the hatchback version as it has enormous space and easy access. The station version has almost less space than the hatchback :S.
Good space for passengers, handles good.
Only 14" tires I would reccomend a version with 15" specially in snow, gravel road and when crossing rivers and for other adventures :).
Nissan garage are overcharging service cost and doing an awful job, so I let some garage not accepted by my Nissan dealer service it and I maybe I should visit them more often.
Main reason for buying it is good second hand price in Iceland for a car this size, bought another one in 2003 (2001 model) and I will probably be buying my third second hand Primera next year.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
