2006 Nissan Almera dCi 2.2 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Very good motorway cruiser
Turbo blown due to faulty actuator. Subject to a recall. Turbo is liable to over boosting. Main dealer should change.
Fast car in straight line. Doesn't handle like its Golf equivalent.
Torque steer big issue, especially in the wet.
Liable to under steer under heavy acceleration.
Liable to over steer on sharp cornering in wet.
Massive flat spot in performance from 3k RPM.
6 speed transmission adds to the fuel economy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
