1996 Nissan Micra 1.0 Manual petrol Propelled
A absolutely crappy car that Nissan calls a March!!!!
Just about everything!!!
The handling sucks big time.
1.0 petrol engine is a real real joke, there's absolutely no power at all to propel the car once it hits a 10% gradient slope.
The seats are just terrible, they are no better than toilet seats in a typical Singapore coffee shop. There's absolutely no support at all when you take hard corners and body roll is mind you, too much for comfort. I will suffer a backache if I drive for more than an hour.
The brakes sucks big time, you can't just simply slam on the brake should you encounter a road obstacle in front of you. The car will skid.
Gear lever feels as if it would break and disintegrate under hard use.
This is an absolutely crappy car that Nissan calls a March.
I got this car when I suffered a minor accident with my Volvo S40, the March was a courtesy car given to me by my insurance company. Thank goodness I will be getting my S40 in 1 week's time after the bumper has been resprayed.
If economy is in for you, fine!
But if you are really into performance and comfort, look for something else, definitely not Japanese. It's well known fact that Japanese cars handle like a toy cars!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I happen to disagree about the Micra's. We have lots of different cars as well as friends and family, BMW's, Rovers, etc, etc. As previously posted the car is all for economy and fuel consumption. At the moment we happen to be upgrading to the latest model, after being so satisfied for 6 years with the particular model you are discussing! Our girl has never let us down!
Keep on going Nissan!
