Faults:

Nothing gone wrong with the car so far.

General Comments:

This is a very good car in general; good in economy, very good engine, smooth driving, easy to control, extremely reliable, comfortable, good looking inside and outside, lots of equipment, good materials, solid built, refined.

It's good that the car market doesn't give much value to this car, like all Nissans and most Japaneses cars, because prices are better and smart buyers can have a better car that's much more reliable than Golfs, Focus, Meganes, A3s. It's the truth; if you don't believe me, try one.

Could be more potent in low revs, visibility to the back is not good, car computer, audio/climate control are difficult to operate.

Absolutely nothing, I just need to change the basic things (like tyres).

General Comments:

Very reliable, with low consumption costs.

The car have a really good engine, handles perfectly, and it's fast for a 1.4, I have beaten 2 Honda Civics (also 1.4) with it :)

The interior seems comfortable to me, and it has everything I need..
