2001 Nissan Primera EX 1.6 from UK and Ireland
A good all-rounder
2 recalls to have the engine sensor replaced, both completed while I waited.
No other faults, car only visited garage for routine services.
Generally speaking dealers very good, always offer courtesy car.
Reliability is fantastic and I have spent less than 300 Euro on servicing so far.
Car only has 39K miles, but the engine really seems to be loosening up now and the car seems to be nippier than ever.
Fuel consumption is very good for a 1.6 petrol - regularly over 40 MPG for a 60/40 urban/rural split.
Car is well spec-ed with sun roof and 6 CD stacker. Seats are extremely comforable and car is a favourite for any long journeys - rear seat passengers find it very comfortable.
This is my 2nd Nissan after years of driving Mistubishi's and I must say I would never go back.
Getting a new Primera in Jan 04 but one major disappointment is that a sunroof is not an option in Ireland. However it does come with climate control and a/c which is in lieu of the sunroof option.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
