1988 Nissan Micra 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Good value run around-if you get it cheap!
First of all, within 2 weeks of buying the car the gearbox seized up. This required me to buy a scrap gearbox and have it fitted-not that cheap!!Apparently not an uncommon problem.
Secondly, exhaust fell off. This was not a surprise and is to be expected for a car of this age.
Failed MOT due to steering rack being faulty. New steering racks don't come cheap.
Finally, my radiator fan has packed in, but this shouldn't be too expensive.
Apart from the fact that repairs have cost me a lot of money, the car itself did not. For the use I've got out of it in the past few months it is just about worth what I've paid for it.
When it's going well it's a great little runner-which is comfortable on long trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
