    2016 SR Automatic

    Just purchased a brand new SR and after putting 1300K on it I think it's a decent little car. It's not exactly cheap at this trim so I do expect the car to perform.

    Here are my impressions:

    Value: AC, Power Windows, Locks, Steering Controls, Backup Cam, Intermittent wipers front/rear, and a decent Interior are well worth it. It's roomy and comes with decent wheels and tires. The engine is peppy.

    Cons: it's not that great on gas. The rear suspension isn't great.


    Issues: Brakes feel incredibly spongy and occasionally make odd sounds similar to a tuning fork. Transmission is clunky. Strange vibrations randomly occur when initially shifting into drive or revers with foot on brake.


    Conclusion: The Micra is a decent little car but the higher trim is too expensive and appears to have issues. Vehicle looks great IMO but fuel economy isn't better than a Corolla S ! I would, however, recommend this vehicle but with some caution as to be aware of the issues I have discovered.

    Thanks for the review, and welcome to the forum!

    I haven't seen either of these issues on the Micras I've driven.

    Maybe worth a visit to the dealer?
