1990 Nissan Micra LS 1.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Reliable run-around for town driving, but not for long distances
Needed new tires when purchased.
Rear number plate fell off, due to rust around the screws on the bodywork.
Parcel shelf hinges snapped.
Gear box seized up at 68000 miles, then I sold it.
This was a very reliable car for the most part while I owned it. Being a 1 litre, it struggled with slight inclines, and don't even mention filling it with people!
Very cheap and flimsy trim, made fitting new speakers difficult.
Heavy steering for such a small car, I certainly got strong arms from driving this car!
Bad cabin noise, especially at speed. Struggles over 70mph mark.
Will go pretty quick if you push the engine hard enough though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
