What to Look for When Buying a Used Nissan Micra

Like if this guide is helpful

The Nissan Micra is the perfect
car for anyone looking to reduce their carbon emissions while boosting their miles per gallon. Better yet, buying a used Nissan Micra can save consumers a lot of money. As long as you know what to look for, you are sure to find a Micra for a reasonable price.


The Appearance

Make sure you know what both the exterior and interior look like, as these vehicles are highly customisable. Buying a used Nissan Micra means that you will likely get a design customised by someone else. Some buyers may view the vehicle's aesthetic as more important than others, but it is still important that you have an understanding of the vehicle's appearance before making any purchases.


The Mileage

A used Nissan Micra might be for sale at a seemingly unbeatable price, but make sure you first learn how many miles the car has on it. For those who are unfamiliar with mileage numbers, a used vehicle with somewhere between 15,000 and 50,000 miles of use may be a good deal. Anything over 100,000 is pushing it, but with proper care some car owners can make the vehicle last a few years.


The Year

Not all models of the Nissan Micra are created equal. An older Nissan Micra has fewer bells and whistles (and most likely more mileage) than a more recent model of the vehicle. Shop around enough to get a solid understanding of the average prices for each vehicle and go from there. Take mileage and additional features into consideration as well.



Some vehicles may come with accessories while others might have a bare bones configuration. If you can find a vehicle with bonus accessories for a similar price as a featureless Nissan Micra from the same year, then consider the accessorised choice. Some of the features in the newer models of this car include door sills, mirror caps, mudguards, and central and lateral air vent rings.


The Price

The price of a used Nissan Micra should be much less than that of the newest model. From a practical standpoint, it is more important to have a vehicle with lower mileage than any other accessories, as that is the characteristic that determines how long you have a functional car. As long as you strike a good balance between mileage, year, and price, you should have no issues finding the perfect used Nissan Micra.
