Pros : Advanced Features, Suspension, Driving Comfort

Cons : Service

Micra is a smart car in terms of looks and style is scores on the top. The Japanese innovation comes in a compact style and best loaded with features however, the braking system, and service has taken the heart away.Look and Style- The small car is good with its looks, the colors it is available in is peppy. Sometimes reminds me of the bubble car. It looks very happening when I start my car with a button. Great head space in the car, excellent windscreen visibility, drivers control, and much more.ComfortMicra is spacious, decent interiors, seats, steering covered with badge chrome compliments the inside. The seat and dashboard have a great feel with proper visibility. Some more features I would like to tell you are front and rear Power Windows, warning light for low fuel, electric heated door mirrors, tilt and powered steering wheel option and a lot.Pickup- When I accelerated Micra on the highway it could reach to the top speed of 140 kmph which was great. The car has 1198cc engine and 5 MT which assures better acceleration and performance. The handling of the car in that speed also was an experience to remember.MileageMicra gives a fuel economy of 14 kmpl which is fine in the city roads and while driving on highways it gives mileage of 18 kmpl. I am just worried about servicing.Best Feature- The best is the starts stop button reminds me of my bike, no worry for the key. Micra looks good with nice door handles, bumper, grippy tires, grille all positioned perfectly. Climate control powerful ac, orange backlit, electric fold mirrors are easily adjusted. The interiors give the freshness. The exteriors of the car are head turners with well-positioned headlights, grille, taillamps it just feel right to be in the car. Well, how can I forget the suspension which is the best so far.Needs to improve- Servicing, the biggest concern, alloy wheels would have been better, better braking system.Overall Experience- Micra is one car which I selected for my sheer love for Japanese cars. This car attracted me when I went for the test drive. I wish with some more added features the car would have been much better.

    The service is not bad for the Micra but there are a few dealers currently across the country. As we speak Nissan is fast increasing the dealer network and appointing new dealers across the country which will help improve the dealer and service network for Nissan cars.

    I am the owner of NISSAN MICRA XL petrol version. Don't worry about the maintenance. It is cheaper compared to other cars in its segment. Go ahead with your plan. I am fully satisfied with its performance.

    I am planning to take Nissan Micra diesel version.but there is no any dealer or service station in my area (Ferozepur,Bhatinda,mukatsar)in punjab

  • gdugar |13 Jun,2011 09:23:22 PM

    I was about to finalize Micra, until I heard of the service and after sales problems across the net. Please let me know is there a technical snag in the car which cannot be serviced , or is it too expensive or no trained staff ? I'm in kolkata and plan for a diesel xv premium model. should I buy or switch to some other brand.

    I have purchased recently Nissan Micra XL. The dealer didnt give me the service schedule. When I asked he said to me upto 10,000 kms, no service required. Anyone please tell me the correct service programme?
