1997 Nissan Micra Vibe 1.0 16v twin cam from UK and Ireland
Fastest, reliable, cheap to insure car
Just needed a new battery a couple of weeks ago, which I was surprised lasted that long, as it was the original battery, and the car does not get used much.
Apart from that, nothing.
A really good, fast, reliable, cheap to insure car.
I have read on this site that the top speed is about 110 miles per hour. Can somebody can confirm that? That would be great. I would not be surprised if it could do that with its 16 valve twin cam engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I think 100 mph is more likely, but most car speedos over-read by about 10% anyway so it might indicate 110.
These are the best cheapo hatches IMO.

They are really good car and fast for a 1 litre engine. What more could you ask for?

Listen man, I saw what some guy wrote the other day, he was well out of order. Micras are the best cars for beginners, I should know as I have had two. They were and are tremendous little motors, not like Citroen, Fiat.
Great car, brilliant, good on insurance (group 3).
One more thing - Micra's rule!!!
My eldest son has just bought the 1998 model, good lad! Great car survey.
