I would have kept Buzz for commuting but I found myself on many a road trip this year on highways with posted speed limits of 120 KPH. Although Buzz complied when pushed to the limit, comfort became more of an issue. Don't get me wrong, the Micra is comfortable (even for me as I am 6'3" and 250 lbs) but not for all day driving. The best hidden secret of the Micra is the ability to disable the stability control by holding the button until the light goes out - and then it becomes really fun especially with the manual transmission (Kids, don't try this at home). Hopefully the new owner of Buzz will join the forum. Thanks to the administrators and the other members, it's been fascinating to say the least to see what you all have done with your cars and the interesting quirks that have risen with the Micra and how to over come them (or in the case of the Speedometer, or not).
    yea i sympathize. this is not the car i'd use if i had a significant commute, honestly. it is great for my purposes, but definitely an econobox (there's nothign wrong with that, ofc)

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    That one adds at least 40 pounds of thrust.

    I'm happy to report that the Micra handles very well in sand.
