2005 Nissan Micra S 1.2 from UK and Ireland
Honest, reliable and a laugh
The only real issues I have had with this car is the fact that the housing around the switches for the blower have begun to strangely crack.
Also, the suspension arms have had to be replaced due to another mysterious "clicking" sound appearing from the vicinity of the throttle area.
Although the plastics are really cheap, they have lasted and you can use any interior car cleaner on them without the fear it will damage it.
No wear on fabrics or exterior parts.
Only problem is that the paintwork is prone to really nasty little scratches, which are supposed to be prevented by the "Supagard" protection agent. It's rubbish!
Although it's an auto, it is quick compared to the same manual-version engine, and makes traffic light starts easy!
Engine sounds good, even when revved or strained (especially on motorways).
Reliable, never had a problem with the engine.
Equipment very basic, even at the "S" level, god knows what the "E" is like! ABS, power steering and front airbags and that's about it!!!
Boot small and seats do not fold flat.
I like it, its great first car and stands up to practically everything.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
