A great family car for keen drivers
Fuel tank leaked.
Wipers always seems to squeak.
For a £4000 family estate car it's very entertaining to drive. It has a lusty engine that loves to rev and the handling is as good as you would expect from much sportier cars, especially now it has some new Michelins to work with.
The cabin is pretty uninspiring - there's lots of cheap grey plastic and even the leather seats manage to look cheap (although they are actually quite comfortable).
It's very practical (which is why I bought it) and being the SE model it has lots of nice little details which make it easy to live with. The tidy way the CD changer is hidden, the variable intermittent wipe, the courtesy lights that stay on until you turn the key in the ignition, for example.
Even though I'm now in-line for a brand new company car I really can't think what sensible car could better my Primera so I'm going to take a car allowance instead!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
