Overall reliability

An outstandingly reliable, economical, well made small car that's surprisingly big inside.

This is the 4th Micra K11 I've had. After having a horrible 2009 Nissan Pixo with wheel bearing and engine mounting problems, it was sold and bought a 35k '98 R Micra 1.0 Equation 3dr, privately, in Feb 2014 for £650 including 6 months tax. Elderly owner had to sell - failing eyesight meant he had to give up driving. Passed its MOT 1st time 5 months later. Very smooth engine, 54 bhp so reasonable performance, has timing chain so no cam belt to change. Nice to drive, high driving position, good gear change. 45 mpg around town, 52 - 55 mpg on the motorway. Never uses any engine oil. Can get my racing bike in the back, and managed to transport a 6ft snooker table inside, with tailgate down, the end over head restraints in the front. Done 7000 miles in 11 months with only teething problems/wear & tear - bought 4 part worn good tyres for £48, changed broken brake light on purchase, changed cracked expansion tank. One downside (had this on other Micras) is the puny heater - demists the windscreen but useless at heating the car. Bodywork is great, but mine had been welded in the usual places before purchase - the front cross member and sills ahead of rear wheels.
