2015 Nissan Micra SV from North America
You *can* say cheap and good in the same sentence!
The check engine light came on 3 times within the first 6 months. All were insignificant code errors which were reset at the dealer, and no issues in the 6 months since.
Awesome little car with amazing fuel economy. A little noisy on the highway because it's low to the ground, but still has the guts to climb hills without other cars pulling out to pass.
Our SV model is nicely equipped with AC, power windows/locks/mirrors, keyless entry remote, and mirror defroster (GREAT in Canadian winters!).
Around town it's a dream. Easy to park, and with a 20km daily roundtrip to work, at $1.25/L this car burns $10 per week. Seriously.
We previously owned a Honda Civic hatchback for 12 years, but an equally-equipped Fit was almost $8K more. The Micra was a no-brainer. The cheapest new car on the road in Canada is also its best bang for the buck (or Loonie!).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
