1986 Nissan Micra GLX 1.0 from Sweden
Economic and fun, but not safe by modern standards
The second day I owned the car, it failed to start. removing the distributor showed the breaker-points to be faulty, so new ones were put on.
From there on, nothing really broke on the car, it serviced us well for a year until a few days ago when the cam-belt snapped/broke. A costly and big repair, even if you can do it yourself.
A very economic car, gas consumption, road-tax e.t.c.
Being so small, it is very flexible and quick in city traffic.
Spare-parts are easy to find, both new and used. And cheap.
Being small and low, it almost feels like a Go-kart sometimes!
Not so good:
Safety in a crash is (almost) none.
Slightly cramped seating positions for all if you are more than 2 in the car.
Noisy at highway-speeds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
