1995 Nissan Primera LX 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Virtually nothing, apart from a tendency to pull to the left (which I am putting down to tracking) and a few bubbles of rust on the rear edge of one of the back doors.
Radiator needed replacing when I bought the car.
Feels over engineered and capable of a big mileage. Not a ball of fire, but it cruises very well and holds a good motorway speed. High gearing helps cruising refinement (4000 rpm at 100 mph).
Good fuel economy (35-40 mpg). Comfortable with a decent ride and excellent seats. Well equipped (sunroof, ABS, electric windows all round etc).
It even handles pretty well, surprisingly good fun to drive down a twisty lane.
Totally anonymous looking, you can leave it anywhere.
Dislikes? None to speak of though I'd have a 2.0 litre for better performance. Parts prices can be dearer than equivalent Mondeo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
