“DO NOT BUY”

Written on: 01/02/2015

Bought brand new Nissan Micra automatic in early 2014. Within a month, problems started....... radio and electrics failing repeatedly, accompanied by dreadful noise from engine leading to over-heating, burning smell, then smoke belching out. It required, within three months, a new starter and ignition switch and radio. The service, care, sympathy, and competence of the staff at the showroom/garage was abysmal and in the realms of ignorance. The mechanic trying to code my radio actually… Read Full Review

“A Big Dissapointment - Worst Nissan Service”

Written on: 27/04/2012 by rahulnissan2012 (1 review written)

"My experience with Nissan Micra has been horrible... My car has a technical glitch and has gone to the service center 6 times in last 1 year with NO respite from the dealership. The nissan website does not work and one cannot submit a complaint. There is NO phone number to register a complaint. Nath Nissan, the dealerships' reassurance has NO value. The major fault is not with the products but the Nissan Services is a big failure, since they have no concern with the problems of the customers… Read Full Review

Totally agree with your comments. They don't like it when you have problems and seem unable to fix them. Shame as they are really good cars.

“Good first car, easy to drive”

Written on: 17/07/2011 by westjustine08 (3 reviews written)

I have owned my Micra for 3.5 years now and have rarely had any problems with it. Having previously owned an old shape V reg Micra I knew that it would be a reliable car and easy to drive. It is good as a first car as it is easy to control and runs smoothly. I have a 1.2 S, which doesn not include alloys or any of the mod cons which the Urbis and Sport models offer. The dashboard and console setup is very basic (it's not really a gadget kind of car). But compared to the 1.0 you will find… Read Full Review

" im a women too and dont know too much about cars but i know its rubbish" I disagree, I think your summary was spot on and summed the car up very well! It gave me a chuckle anyway!

Written on: 05/05/2010

This car is brilliant. I read many reviews about this car before deciding on it. There was a mixture of reviews and i began to feel nervous about my decision. However, a family member has the older shaped Micra and has always said how much she loved it. Micra's do have a reputation for reliability and so i decided to go for it. I am so glad i did. I got a fantastic deal. £4,295 for a Micra 06 Urbis 5dr 22,000 miles. The Urbis comes with aircon and parking sensors which are a great added extra… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/10/2010

I found this review very helpful because so many reviewers come to review a car because they've had a negative experience. You will never buy a car if your decision is based solely on reviews cos every car has a down side.
<br/>
<br/>So this review is making me think - I am due to get this car at the weekend, lets hope I don't come back here to give a bad review.

Written on: 21/02/2010

This series/model of Micra ( K12 ) is absolute rubbish. Mine is a top of the range 1.4 SVE model. It has had 3 different boot locks fitted, two under warranty and one I did my self. I have just forked out £800 for a new full timing chain kit to be fitted. Nissan main dealers want £1200 + at for this job. The car has only done 48,000 miles and been serviced according to the Nissan schedule. This timing chain issue is a really major problem with this series of Micra. Just post " Nissan Micra K12… Read Full Review

The handling of this car is great, makes it easy to park in tight spaces, very smooth on cornering, fun to drive. very fuel efficient. had some problems with the powersteering, but it was easily fixed by scanning and clearing the code error, nonetheless very nice car.

Written on: 11/02/2010

I bought the Nissan Micra S as my first car with low running costs and cheap insurance in mind.

I owned a 1.2 S, which has got me from A-B however if you're taller like I am then you will find the ride uncomfortable on long journeys. There is little or no leg room in the rear, however i have managed to fit 5 people into it at a push. The boot slides forward for extra room, but really is very limited. The acceleration can be fairly slow as well, especially when trying to overtake on the… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2010

Had several micras in the past and been delighted with them. My priorities are reliability and cheap running costs.
This new shaped 1.2 micra has been the worst car I have ever purchased. I have had major repair costs every year with the associated inconvenience of it being in the garage. The computerised " engine management" system is a nightmare, and dealers have you over a barrel with diagnostics… Read Full Review

My mother had bought an ex demo Micra 1.2 s auto 03" reg from New Way Nissan dealership Aldershot in 2003 it only had 1200 miles on clock, she still owns it now and only has covered 20000 miles since. so you could say it's hardly used, but she has kept up the service schedule up to date, but whilst she has owned it she had to replace the ignition lock twice, and now it has had 3 new batteries within 2 years and had another new battery 2 weeks ago but has gone dead again. Nissan used to be known… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/03/2009 by Big Dave Midlands (25 reviews written)

This review is for a 5 door 58 plate 1.2 (80bhp) Acenta Automatic. I had this as a hire car for three weeks whilst my golf was being repaired following a minor prang, and I covered just less than 1000 miles during that time. I cannot comment on running costs like servicing and insurance but I can comment on what the vehicle is like to live with day to day and used in a variety of conditions including town commuting, motorway work, cross country and city driving.

I am not quite sure what… Read Full Review

Nissan Micras seem OK, but I guess when you're moving from a Golf o one of these you'd be disappointed. Good to see you back on site tho Dave!
