    I live on the east coast of Vancouver Island at about the half way point. The Micra has always been a huge seller in in this area as there are no factories or industry and many people have modest incomes. In the early days when other dealers did not bother ordering the manual base model our dealer did and there were very few times when there were not a few on the lot. I almost always see one or tow on my 7 km trip to town and one time at a 4 way stop there were 3 of us waiting our turn to go.

    Suggestion! How about we start a thread for 'Working Micra's', as on post #297 on page 30? I've seen a few here with their business logo's, just gotta catch them!! The Micra in that post has added amazing decal work on the other side, so when I get a chance, I'll post the shot!!

    Sure - post the shot when you get it and I can copy over the one from here.

    I noticed 2 more Micras in town in the past couple of weeks. Not sure if they're owned or rentals though. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

    Oh, and the dealer in town has ONE Micra on the lot currently: S trim, not sure if it's base manual or automatic though (gates were closed).

    Here is the rental micra I had for two weeks while mine was being repaired. I have a new found respect for the micra automatic after putting almost 3000k on it.

    Is that your first time trying a Micra auto?

    I will also admit I was prepared to not like it. But I was pleasantly surprised how refined it is for an "old tech" slushbox.

    Still would always choose the manual, even with its silly low gearing.
