Fun to drive

This is a fun car to drive and cheap on petrol. I had an automatic, bought it second hand for in 2017. Luckily it was a bargain as one year and a half later the alternator failed and it cost me $800 to get it fixed! Car only had 65.000. Maybe I was just unlucky. My micra was black and paint was fading as well. Despite those negative aspects I did like the car. It was pretty reliable Show details

Fuel efficient

I have a 2016 Nissan Micra, costs about $60 to fill and the tank lasts me 8 days driving to work 2 hrs per day. My previous car was costing me a lot more. I have never had an issue with this car and the purchase price was very reasonable.

Perfect (almost)

My first car and still going strong after 5 years. Good handling and great manuevering esp. turning. For a small car, it is quite spacious.

Had 2 major problems so far. First was the wheel bearing broke off overnight while parked in the garage. Still under warranty, so got it fixed for free. Second problem was transmission problem. Whirring noise whenever speed increase, like a plane taking off. Also got it fixed during warranty period.

Bad thing is that the warranty is only 3 years from Nissan dealership, have to pay more for extended warranty.

Beep beep

This is a great little run about. So good on fuel.I fill up 1 time every 2weeks at the cost of $60-$70

I do heaps of driving to and from work, kids schools rugby training to only mention some.

Could be a little more roomy but all in all comfy enough.Nice boot size to hold all the goodies too.

Great economic little car

Very economical, reliable and easy to maintain. It works well for a single mom with one child. I have never had an issue with the car at all and I live in rural Australia.

I have ensured that the services are carried out each time and this has meant that the car has never had any issues.

The Magnificent Micra

Excellent turning circle, easy manual transmission, plenty of grunt from the 1.5Ltr engine.

Oodles of comfortable interior room, easy to get in & out - higher that other cars in this class.

Easy on petrol, servicing costs are low - only serviced once a year.

It's a treat to drive & hasn't missed a beat, is completely reliable to date.

Go's good

Really liked a zippy earlier model when travelling in 1997. Bought a 2013 model and it never disappoints. I live in the mountains and it is actually quite high off the ground compared to other small cars. Really gutsy ( 1.5 L) up the mountain and find power is not an issue even with the air con on. Well priced on services. Back wiper really good on mountain weather. Cant fault it.

Didn't let me down, ever!

It's a 1.2 engine so it is very cheap to run. I live in the city and it's very convenient to use especially when in need of parking. There's nothing to dislike about interior even the leg room. It looks small on the outisde but you'll be surprised on what can fit in inside. Chairs at the back are foldable which provides more room when you need it. ABS works wonders too especially on rainy days.

Excellent car

The car's cylinder is only 1.2 liters, but it has enough power, the appearance is very beautiful, comfortable operation, the passenger seat has a humane design ideal for female to drive.. Because of the small cylinder it is fuel-efficient, as the second car for family is a very good choice.

I love this car

Best car I have ever had. Reliable, gas saver, perfect. I feel very safe with my family in the car.

It is small but spacious. Love how it looks also. I recommend this car to everyone. If you are looking for a dependable, long lasting, gas saving car, this is it!

Nissen Micra

Driving is smooth and gear change easy, leg room at rear is a little short, but let room in front is adequate, running costs are very reasonable, for town running, there is little or not noise, extreemly pleased with running. seating is comfortable air conditioner works fine and vents are easy to operate.

Nice little car

runs perfectly. easy to park at shopping centres or tight spaces. Some nice little luxury items as well like sensors and auto rear mirrors closing. Even though it's small, it still feels like there is plenty of space. it has a convenient hand rest on the left for the driver as well.

Economical & reasonably priced

It is a cute small car good for first car buyers and 45-50 dolars will fill the tank app 480-500 km and is a reliable car the downsides of the car is its not made for speed so freeways can be tricky as the car starts to push itself at 100km also you cant push the seats too far back as its a small car and only the front seats are electric windows.
