The Worst Car I Ever Owned! — My second car and, good God, I hated it! There was never anything particularly wrong with it. Small car, cheap to run, etc. but there was just nothing exciting about it. I was glad when someone drove into it and wrote it off.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Just not a nice car

Bullit Proof Cars — If i was to rate this car i would say its a great first car, for anyone who's not so confident behind the wheel. Ive had the car for about 3-4 years now and ive come to learn everything about the car, i.e performance, handling, reliability and fuel consumption. I think most people expect the Micra to be the grandma run around but if you open her up abit it shows a different side. I push my Micra hard and its a very quick car. Its light and small and the 1.0l DOHC 16v engine is bullet proof. Not everything is great, for instance, My seat wont go back far enough for me to be completely comfortable. Not much gadgets not even a cigarett lighter adapter. But then if it had lots of gadgets, thats more things to go wrong.

Pros: Great little run around, easy to handle and returns good mpg

Cons: crampt leg space, rotting sills and ECU sometimes floods the engine if the engine is ran for short periods of time.

Nice Car - Shame About The Body Shape! —

I'm still not sure why I bought this one! Really hate the shape of it and it is stereotyped towards women. I think the main reason is I bought it was because I knew it would be cheap to run & reliable, and I was having lots of reliability issues with my current car at the time which was costing me lots of £'s to get fixed so I decided to get this as a reliable stepping stone towards my next "decent" car! It was better than I expected to drive. the 1.0 16V engine was really nippy and I had lots of fun pulling away quicker than bigger cars in traffic light drag races! I didn't go too much on the brakes though - no ABS and being a light car it was quite easy to accidentally lock the wheels when doing an emergency stop. I also remember one issue with the handling when I nearly lost the rear end while overtaking a pensioner who insisted at driving at 15mph in a 30 limit, mind you the road was really wet that day, but it's safe to say that having a light car with little tyres like that is not going to give you a lot of grip in the corners. Can't fault the reliability of it though. I never had any problems with it and I sold it privately to a friend from work - he's still got it and I still see it parked in the work car park regularly. Not had any bad reports from the current owner since I sold it so as far as I know it's still running smoothly!

Pros: Very reliable and the petrol lasts for ages

Cons: Looks too "girly" and there's no power socket for accessories in the basic model which I found out the hard way - had to pay £50 to have one fitted
