1999 Nissan Primera P11-144 2.0 140HP


Fun, practical, underrated and cheap to buy ;)


Airbag light goes on and off randomly since I bought the car... Still didn't try to solve the problem...

I have driven the car for more than 20k miles and never had any issues with it... everything else is working just fine!

I think this is a very reliable car if you do your maintenance correctly ;)

General Comments:

This is my first car ever and I LOVE IT for its practicality, looks and handling!

When I bought the car I was surprised at how well it handles... I have lots of friends with much smaller and lighter cars, and they are always impressed by the way it corners!!! I think there's a really good feel at the wheel also. This car is really a lot of fun to drive! At the same time, it's a pretty spacious and practical car (the trunk is actually pretty big!) and the seats are not bad.

I also LOVE the CVT! Sure it's not very efficient, but it is so unique to drive and so smooth! If you actually learn to use it, performance is not even that bad :)

I love the fact that when you accelerate it revs like crazy and makes a lot of noise... much more than it accelerates :D

However, when the car is full, 140 HP is a bit short especially when going up-hill... And it's a bit thirsty... I get 10L/100 when driving around city and 8L/10 when driving at 135km/h!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
