1989 Nissan Micra 1.2 LX k-10 1.2 Gas

Summary:

The car is reliable and cool to drive

Faults:

An year ago the car got a leak in the gas tank.

About a month ago its two lamps died.

General Comments:

Very reliable. Very cool to drive. Handles well even on wet roads. Consumption is high, about 7.5 litter per 100 kilometer. Good visibility when parking. I already got five accidents with the car: 3 minor, and 2 medium. It wasn't expensive to repair and it is as good as new.

Acceleration is good, but it's no match for most of the current cars, except in turns.

My model has open-air system, that is really cool with the Portuguese weather.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I agree, my '90 Micra only can achieve with careful driving about 35 MPG's, and sometimes as low as 25 MPG's with hard driving. I'd say the problem lies somewhere in the carburettor, which as I am planning to replace soon enough.
