1993 Nissan Micra L 1.0 from UK and Ireland
Well built, cheap super-mini
1 x 10 amp fuse blown = 10 pence repair bill!
For a small car the build quality is excellent and the perky 16 valve engine gives adequate around town performance. OK on the motorway up-to 80 miles an hour.
100% reliable and cheap to service.
Cheap tax for the 1.0 version and very low insurance rating.
Good head room (I am 6ft tall and don't have a problem).
Braking is very poor as the wheels and brake discs are only small.
Suspension and seat support is quite poor which means turning corners is uncomfortable even at low speeds!
Doesn't have an intermittent wiper on the 1.0L which is a pain at times!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
