Not my cup of tea
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 Acenta 5dr Auto (Review date: 1st August '12)
I bought this car second hand to replace my old VW Polo. After only two months I have sold the car and gone for another Polo. I found the Nissan a very hard car to drive, the steering seemed very heavy and the road noise was awful. I felt like I was in a goldfish bowl. Very happy with my Polo.
Fantastic little car. 5 stars from me!
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 SE 3dr (Review date: 10th June '12)
I have owned my Nissan Micra since December 2005, and it has been an absolute pleasure to drive. It has been entirely reliable, and I have never had an issue with it, mechanical or otherwise. Running costs are low and I get approx 43 miles per gallon. Though it is a 'small car', it is surprisingly spacious inside and offers plenty of boot space. The only downside as far as I can tell is that, as is usual with small cars such as this, it can be a little loud whilst driving at high speeds on the motorway. All in all, a fantastic little car. 5 stars from me!

NISSAN MICRA 1.4 SVE 3dr Auto (Review date: 24th February '12)
A Micra isn't everyone's choice ...but this little beauty is one of the most reliable and practical cars I have ever owned .The SVE model was changed to the new marques around 2006 .My 1.4 SVE was one of the last of the SVE types prior to the new ranges that appeared from 2006 onwards!
This is a car that looks small on the outside...but its amazingly big on the inside ...mainly due to clever design by Nissan ! This car has never given me one single problem since it was bought !
Ease of handling...fuel economy.....reasonable maintenance costs ...have all been "plus factors " .
The Micra probably won't impress the "petrol heads " ...but for sheer reliability and total piece of mind , it can't be beaten !
As with any make of car ...there will be owners who may not agree with my views.....But I have not had a single glitch with this SVE model in any area of performance .
Have been seriously considering a Nissan Juke...but whilst my Micra keeps on performing as well as it has done over the years ...I am hanging on to it and no mistake !
The nippy slug
NISSAN MICRA 1.0 E 3dr (Review date: 24th February '12)
Despite the reg.num., which reminds you of a very slow wee beasty, this wee car is great, in town, popping to the shops, going to work or just going for a drive, it is comfy and surprisingly spacious inside, i need the leg-room as i am tall. The petrol consumption varies obviously according to road use but on the whole it,s good and very reliable, i,ve had it nearly 4years and it,s never let me down, even after sitting idle for a month, when i was ill. I hope to have this car for a while so i,m looking after it, it deserves it.
Most reliable car ever!
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 Urbis 3dr (Review date: 24th February '12)
This car is a must if you just want something which is never going to give you hassle and doesnt need any looking after.Basically its a brillant first car if your an airhead who knows nothing about the basics needs of a car.Iv had this car 3 years and its now 7 years old and still runs like a dream.
The parking sensors have gotten me out of a few tight spaces, the tyres have excellent grip as you wing around roundabouts and the petrol is so efficient.I drive 80miles every day and a full tank will last me 5 days!The only disappointing thing is the appearance it does look like a granny car.
All in all if i had to choose again I would still buy this car
down sizing doesnt always mean down grading
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 SE 3dr (Review date: 27th January '12)
We bought the micra as a fill in when my step son had his X6 stolen, and the insurers deemed it fair to leave him carless for 10 weeks out of the 12 it took them to settle the claim, as we both drive 4x4's normally, his for business purposes, mine for horsey recreational use (mine not the horses) we decided to hang on to it as a nippy runaround which is exactly what it is proving to be, its quick of the mark ok 0-60 feels like an eternity, yes I now feel just about every bump on the road, but then again you do in a porsche, the turn circle is amazing to coin a phrase it turns on a sixpence, parking just got so much easier to find a big enough space, fuel usage is great I have only used a days worth of my usual consumption in 5 days.
Its not the prettiest car on the road but it is a vast improvement on the old models, with masses of head room, and with three sons who are all 6-3plus not a problem, although I havent tried all three in there together. The interior is very plasticky, and as its the keyless ignition, I must say the knob to start it looks remarkably like a cooker knob, before we have any women and kitchen jokes guys remember most pro' cooks are men ;).
I dont think I would want one as a full time car, but as a second car its absolutely fantastic.
Excellent, spacious car.
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 Urbis 3dr (Review date: 20th January '12)
This car has so far been brilliant. I have had it a year now and although I only use it for day to day errands, rarely on the motorway, I have not had any problems with it. It is reasonably nippy, very spacious and very easy to drive. The parking sensors have come in handy in a tight spaces, the trip computer lets me know my fuel economy (47mpg) and the steering wheel controls make it safer for me to fiddle around with my music.
The only cons for me are that it seems to be a bit damp inside - it takes a long time to clear the windows and a little mould has grown on the seats (but it brushes off easily) - although I have checked all the seals and cannot find anything wrong. Also when I get out of it, it sometimes smells like it's very hot although I had this checked by a mechanic and nothing was found wrong with it.
Overall I absolutely love this car and would recommend it to anyone looking for a spacious but relatively cheap car to run, it is very suitable for children and for those who want something easy to drive.
NISSAN MICRA 1.2 S 3dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
A Hop, Step and Jump or a Hot, Steady and Bumper run-about. My Sea Blue Micra is snazzy, compact and dextrous for my everyday use.
It is tiny enough to zip along the side streets of town, yet big enough to keep its own , cruising along the motorway. Fuel wise, it does not hurt my purse strings (relatively), although insurance, for me, is still steep. Besides a few bob on wear and tear, I have not had any major maintenance costs.
I would certainly recommend it as a first car for new drivers, or as a city run about, with the occasional long distance trip.
It starts at the first attempt, even in winter, and heats up pretty quickly and specs like electric windows, radio/sterio, and comfortable, relatively spacious seating are a bonus.
However, wipers did wear down earlier than expected, and had to replace and realign headlight bulb. The suspension and brushes are also wearing down, although its only done 38000 miles to date.
It is not going to do the "Italian Job" but hopefully a medal in the Olympic triple jump! Ciao.
