2004 Nissan Micra SE 1.4 tdi from UK and Ireland
A good little car, very economical and nippy
Rear number plate fell off - it was just stuck on with double sided sticky tape.
Apart from that nothing else!
A great little car to drive and manoeuvre. Very nippy with the more powerful of the diesel engines.
Very economical - usually 60+ MPG.
The car could be made even better by-
1. Spending a few pence on putting sound proofing in the door panels (2 door) and in the side panels to cut down the tinny noise when you shut the door
2. Spending a couple of pounds in the factory and fit plastic rear wheel arch linings to stop all the salt and mud going into the complicated mud traps where the bumper meets the body. The fuel pipes also end up covered in road dirt where they leave the filler cap.
3. For a few pence fit a piece of plastic around where you fill the washer bottle - if you miss the tiny filler hole you put water all over the alternator - not a good idea!
Water also ends up getting in to the engine compartment when the car is washed.
Anyway these are minor moans! Overall the car is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
