2001 Nissan Primera Sport+ Estate 2 Litre from UK and Ireland
Best car I've ever owned
It's a Nissan and is therefore very reliable.
This car has the quickest acceleration of any car I've owned, but doesn't advertise it's potential to would be thieves except via a discrete "sport+" badge on the tailgate - who wants to steal an estate anyway?
The vehicle holds the road exceptionally well except when you set off where you have to be very careful with the right foot to avoid spinning the front wheels. Why did they not fit Traction Control?
The interior is superb although not as decorative as the SE+ version.
There's plenty of room inside for our family of five.
Seats are half leather and very comfortable even after a long run.
Plenty of gadgets and driving extras are provided including 6 stack CD changer, on-board computer, front fog lights, ABS and, most importantly, Xenon headlights.
These are, in my opinion, a vast improvement over the standard Primera halogen versions which gave poor lighting and constantly needed bulbs replacing on a previous Primera.
The only downside to the Xenon lights is the main beam flashing from one or two other approaching motorists who assume, that because the lights are so bright, I must have them on main beam.
I think there are only two things missing from this car;
1) Traction Control.
2) Cruise Control.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
