Great Mini People Mover
2006 ST Manual model purchased car at 62000 now on 125000 after 4 years, from the outside the engine is still pretty quiet on idle. Only required tyres, brakes, spark plugs and regular oil changes . The other fix was electric window controller on drivers door that needed contacts cleaned. Easily seats 4 people including very tall children in back and very good on fuel average 7.6L 100km. The colour is white and you can see between the roof and hatch where less paint was applied and looks like an undercoat appearance. Interior is all black plast...ic, plenty of storage bins. Double rubber sealing on the doors keeps out a lot of the road and wind noise so you dont need to crank the radio up too high. This is good especially at highway speeds the engine is doing 3000 rpm at the speed limit so the engine is pretty busy. I reckon this was a lost opportunity where the designers could have dropped the rpm at cruising speed because the manual is a six speed box. The engine does need to be stirred and comes to life above 2900rpm but can dawdle along at 2500 rpm. Driving the car is a bit wooden the steering is electric assist so no real feel, understeers, the accelerator is electric so there is a delay in waking up, the clutch action squeaks because the pedal box moves as the metal is too thin. One day the pedal box may break, so putting grease on the clutch mechanism to try and make it smoother. The gear shift is a plastic gate ball bearing mechanism, works fine, accurate but not much feel, this was greased to improve shift quality and prevent plastic breaking. Overall a very basic car not full of electronics, 2 airbags no ABS , good people mover , handy boot.

Good but weak auto transmission
I have an 07 tiida Q with auto transmission. My car has done about 160k and has been great except for the transmission which failed and needed replacement. The failure was from parking on a sloped driveway and putting gear into park before applying handbreaks. The gear would get a little stiff next time I put into drive and over time transmission gave way. Never had this problem with my previous car which was a Camry. If you buy this car, always ensure handbrakes are applied before gear is put into park.
Purchased in October 2017 for $5,000.00.
Comfortable,supple,great space, serene, reliable, economical,refined,smooth
The rear suspension system is taken directly from from Nissan's Z sportscar.
The styling, with radical focus on reducing drag is still unparalleled for its aerodynamics.Nissan claims best-in-class aerodynamics with a 0.29 drag coefficient and zero body lift at the front for the Tiida.
Powered by 16-valve 1.8-litre four cylinder engine with good torque from about 2000 rpm upwards to 5200 rpm and feels like a car of the next size upward.
The MR18DE engine more powerful than the one in the Pulsar produces from 124 to 128 PS (91 to 94 kW; 122 to 12...
Purchased in September 2008.
2004 cvvt tiida hatch ..At 375,000 km....The aircon failed.. [ stone through radiator.]..Traded & bought exact same model again [with aircon] at 116,000 km..[If you see one cheap in good order, buy it & stop wasting money on cars.]
Fuel economy always depends on driver & road conditions,,,A 1500 cc cvvt Tiida can return 5.5 ltrs per100km.
I have been driving for 67 years. I hold a competition licence...I have never had control of a better all round car.
The best little car on earth
After buying a brand new Corolla ridden with faults I got tired of having constant issues. So I purchased a 2006 Nissan Tiida ST-L on gumtree for $600. Flew through a roadworthy and 314,000 kilometres later it hasn't skipped a beat. This is the best car I have ever purchased, hats off to Nissan for building a car to last, it's affordable to run and service.
Love my little Tiida!!
This Is My Dream Car!!!!
Oh my goodness! this is the car of the century it is small, compact yet accommodates all my shopping and my son's sport equipment if needed, runs on VERY small amount of petrol and it is absolutely very reliable!!! You can park it almost anywhere and drive anywhere!! the only problem that I got is that the panel light wasn't working and it cost me 200 to replace as the whole board needs to be taken out. Cheapskates solution stick a round battery light at the bottom, available at Big W for $4.
This car drivers great could hardly feel the bumps in the roads. Gearbox works perfectly. I love the interior the modern dashboard is easy to read. This car runs great on fuel only have to buy fuel once every two weeks. This car is very reliable as we drove it up to port & back.
Best small car I have every owned. Spacious, and extremely reliable. Plug and Play simple vehicle.
Purchased this car second hand. This was for my wife who wanted a car which is easy to handle and has great visibility of the road and yes it has extremely good view as you sit very high in this car.
What she liked about the car was the amount of space in front and the back seats. Thats more space even than the Ford Fairmont in terms of Knee room.
Very easy to take kids out of the child seat as it allows you to go inside and not crawl from the sides.
In terms of the interiors, its a very simple car. Not fancy gadgets but takes you from...
2007 model bought at 180,000Km
The thing I love about this car is the history it comes with. People are complaining that the engine is too weak, but this is actually really good if you are looking for a second hand car, as a weak engine will most likely show a history of a conservative driver, i.e; you’re e not likely to find a rev head who’s thrashed a Nissan tiida. Plus being ugly AF would turn heads away, especially rev heads ;)
To address the lack of power, sure it is kind of weak and you will struggle a bit on hills. But for me, the condition of the motor is far more...important. Cons: No heat gauge. So just watch out. There is a light that shows blue on cold start up, meaning it’s warming up. I’m guessing there’d be a light showing red when it gets too hot? That hasn’t happened yet anyway. If it’s a real game changer, you could have an after market heat gauge installed if you want. Another problem is the accelerator. You need long feet for this one, as it sits quite high. Don’t know what Nissan where thinking there. No head rester at the back but it’s not really that bad. You don’t even notice it when sitting. Overall good little car. I’d recommend it definitely. I’ve already done 20,000km (now over 200,000km) and no issues whatsoever. Just smooth driving
My first baby
I bought a Nissan Tiida 2013 its my first car and has been pretty good so far if you need something to take you from a to b and be reliable then this car is amazing. Interior is not that amazing but it does what its meant to sun shade is falling apart but other than that is been pretty good with medium running costs.
Have got,a 2012 model
Great hatchback,and very comfortable.
Dont really dislike anything,about the Interior.There is plenty of legroom,in the back for our 6'5" grandson,when we run him to the airport.He is gratefull we think!!
VERY,reliable and we fill up once a month with 95 or 98.We are retired,and only do about 400km a month,all around the Gold Coast.No really long trips.Less than 50,000km on the clock
First Car, lasted years!
I brought a Nissa Tiida 2007 as my very first car in 2011. I brought it second hand and I have had NO problems with it AT ALL. Very reasonable on fuel and very easy to maintain. I feel it has a lot of space for a small little car and would be great for a little family
Great little car!
I bought my Manual 2012 Nissan Tiida ST 2 years ago second hand as a p plater. I am a rough person on cars and I live out in the country on dirt roads and the only problems I have had is the shockies. Bought it at 44,000km now has almost 100,000kms and still going strong. Would recommend as a first car or as a little run around for people with older children. My only problem is if you have a child seat with anchor points they you struggle to get anything in the boot as the straps go over. Other than that I love the car, has fantastic space for a little car, easy to park, great fuel economy. I fuel the car up once every fortnight for about $60-$70 depending on fuel prices and do over 250kms a week in it.
Amazing little car!
Rubbish name, Fantastic little car.
We have owned our Tiida hatch from new since 2007. We purchased it as it was a great price when new, the interior space was large for a small car and my wife liked how she sat higher up in it compared to her old car.
Anyway, now with 150,000 km on the clock it is time to trade it in for a larger car (we have three kids). Despite the name (which means Sun), our Tiida has been a very reliable and economical car and hasn’t missed a beat. Ours is a manual and has been fun to drive around town and also out on the highways. Other than normal main...tenance, I have only had to replace two minor parts on the car which both were purchased off eBay. In case you weren’t aware, a lot of this car shares parts with the Renault Meganne. Someone here mentioned you have to take the headlight out to replace the bulb but that’s not true. They can be replaced from the engine compartment. As for the tail lights, yes they are a bit more difficult but can still be done from the boot. Overall, it has been a wonderful car and we will be sad to see it go.
Perfect family car
The driving experience for the Nissan Tiida is very smooth and great family car. The seats are very spacious and comfortably fits 3 car seats in the back seat. The boot is very big way more spacious than it looks. Very good on petrol Bout 750km to a full tank depending on your driving style.
value of money
Got a 2011 model. 1.8L was the great for home to work and ordinary day. The car does not come with luxury accessories but i think it is up to buyer them self to decide add ins.
The car has big space and also would fit in 2 big luggage
The drive is great. The back seats are very spacious. Once you fold the chairs down, there is a lot of room at the back. I get about 500+km on a full tank. I haven't had any major problems with the car whenever I take it to get serviced. Good reliable car in general.
Smell petrol when fill up driving is comfy bought it 2 months ago and trouble with the petrol indicator dealer fix it but still petrol smell when parking interior is very nice and a lot of space at the rear seats Running cost is fair good model and easy to park
Great car to get me from A to B and also to take on road trips with friends
Spacious interior with plenty of room for luggage
Car feels really light to drive which makes it comfortable
Fuel efficient, however fuel tank capacity is pretty low (approx. 35-40L)
Never had a breakdown, very reliable
Its time for me to trade in my fantastic 20007 Hatchback auto
Sadly l have to upgrade my 2007 Hatchbackwhile l am still young enough at 75 to for my brain to manage the changes. My Tiida has been top notch over the last 10years. Having driven 134,000km l have only had basic costs like new tyres & new batteries. Never been off the road for anything major. Running cosrs have been very reasonablel love the colour, l can find my golden/green car in any carpark. The steering is great, very little engine noise. Inside the car has plenty of room for the grandchildren & also caters for my 91year old arthric step...mother, the wide doors help her to get in easily & we carry her wheelchair easily.I have added safety features of cam recorder, & reversing camera,plus tinted windows. How will the Nissan Pulsar 2016 Hatchback compare? l am ready to test drive it! Will l regret upgrading it?
