Reliable and affordable
The car has a slight pull to the left, only noticeable when hands are briefly lifted off the steering wheel. Under normal driving circumstances, the pull is not noticeable.
The rear window washer water hose popped off due to a faulty valve. This was repaired under the warranty.
The headlamp sockets became brittle and snapped when replacing the globe. Once again, this was repaired under warranty (an extended warranty in this case).
During the extreme heat last summer (over 47 degrees Celsius), the clutch got stuck at the floor when changing gears.
The engine has started to become a little noisy, and consumes a lot of oil in between services.
I purchased the Pulsar from my brother, who had it since new, making the history of the vehicle known to me. For us both, it has been an exceptionally reliable car, having never broken down.
The car is comfortable, and easy to drive and park.
The hatch back can offer a lot of space when the seats are folded down, and I have used the car to move house on two occasions.
The Pulsar is economical to drive and cost effective to service. I have always returned to the Nissan dealership for all follow up work and service, and I have always been pleased with their professionalism and helpful nature.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
