1999 Nissan Primera GX 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Don't buy one of these cars
Lights failed, brake problems, tyre wear, paint problems.
Harsh and uncomfortable ride, excessive road noise, fussy auto box, poor and flimsy build quality, generally disappointing.
Not a car I can look forward to driving, feels more like a washing machine.
Also poor attititude from the main dealer to the point of being aggressive and argumentative.
I would not buy another Nissan. I heard in Nissan circles that it's known as a 'plastic pig', I can see why.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I don't agree, I have owned five Japanese cars before and they all drove superbly and were reliable. The best car I ever owned was a 1986 Nissan Laurel C32, it was superb. This isn't even in the same league, even my old Rover 820 was a better car. I don't know if it's because it's made in England or not, but I certainly wouldn't buy another Primera.
