The Nissan Primera. The bad points: The boot fills up with water which comes in through the rear light clusters. The car has an absolutely awful turning circle. Quite a few roundabouts require a 3 point turn to get round where most cars are capable of just driving around them happily. The interior. Now I dont really know where to begin with the interior, other than the fact it is your typical jap plastic. Grey, boring and very cheap. The gear knob also doesnt last very long before it starts to come loose and spin. You can screw it back on but then it seams to sit at a funny angle. I solved that dilemna by jamming a piece of card under it to hold it in place. The engine is pretty lame. It is very sluggish for a 2.0 16v. Compared to the vauxhall range it feels a lot like the old 2.0 8v found in the cavalier.
Now to some good points. If you want something thats cheap, reliable and fairly safe for a family car then a primera is spot on. Maybe you'd like to use it as a taxi too because they seem ideal, but I'd not buy 1 for fun.
