Cons

Watch out for rust here and there, especially around rear spoiler now

Nissian Primera Gt 1997 — Great car, had to spend a bit recently on rear brakes but nice to drive especially on longer journeys. Reasonably quick as 150bhp version. Doing 35. 9miles to the gallon on the 12 miles to work, plenty more on a run. GTLE is worth looking out for as nicer wheels and a couple of engine mods.

A Good Start Up Car!!! — This car is quite good, the quality is good, performance is alright for a front wheel drive car, the cost is cheap for what you get, the front two sets are buckets and the back seat are normal. over all this car is a good start to a family car

Primera 2.0 Gt — My Primera is a great car, the performance of the GT is imo astounding, i havent driven a greater balanced car, it has power, great handling and awesome Nissan reliability!! The Exterior is a standard Nissan Colour basically named CSO Orange ( or Burnt Copper etc.). It has a modified front GT bumper with an added splitter, standard GT rear bumper, and I think its an STI spoiler but not to sure, the interior is a standard GT semi-leather trim, the dash and controls have been colour coded in orange to match the style of the car, since ive had the car I have had to replace a driveshaft, this is a common problem with the majority of primeras. Being a 2.0 GT it was never really built to be economical (neither was I with my driving ;) !!! ). Its quite expensive to run on short journeys round town, but on long distaces its much better but with the rising price of fuel its a bit of a pain in the ass, to me this car is the best car I have ever driven, I love this car to bits, I will definitely not own an other car than a primera now, defo recommend a primera to anyone!!!
