Overall reliability

Cheap, reliable, economical transport, surprising roomy, good build quality.

This is my 4th Micra K11. Mine is a K11C - the 1998 facelift with chrome wings in the bonnet and more pleasant dashboard. Bought this 1998 'R' 1.0 3dr Equation in Feb 2014 with 35k on the clock, and 6 months tax included. Drives very quietly and smoothly. Bodywork in very good condition although the sills and the front cross member have been welded. Performance is quiet reasonable from the 1.0 54 bhp engine but on the motorway a steep hill will slow it slightly, and it's tricky overtaking slow cars when you need power to avoid oncoming traffic. Only work so far in 5000 miles has been a change of tyres, new brake pads, a headlamp bulb, new coolant expansion tank (they get brittle with age and crack) and replaced the broken brake light in the hatch with a scrapyard item. I get 42mpg around town and got 55mpg on a motorway trip back from London. Has a timing chain instead of a cam belt. Surprisingly spacious - can get my racing bike in the back, and have had a 6ft snooker table in it with the tailgate down. Only dislikes are the heater - seems useless at heating the car in cold weather (and not just this K11 either), and the tax - not a cheap rate like the later Nissan, the poorly built Pixo, which I have already owned.
