    We just heard from a happy new member who came to the forum to get some real life research before pulling the trigger on a base S Micra:

    I know we get a lot of visits from people searching for Micra info; of course more people are researching and then NOT registering afterward, but I'm curious if anybody else here did the same thing as krssctt.

    Vote in the poll, top of the page! (Multiple answers allowed.)

    i did come across this forum before getting my micra....but only little, such that it really had no influence on my buying decision.

    it's a cozy little community, tho

    I always search through owner forums before I buy. Though I tend to buy older models so there's a lot more information to be found (common problems, reliability issues etc.).

    I did come to read what the owners had to say about the car, however, I had already made the deal so.... uhm, I might have done the procedure in the wrong order, Lol.

    I voted ''all of the above''
    3 and 4 were not actually ''no'', but I did get info from other sources and also knew I was getting a Micra regardless.

    I mean, 10K for a new car by an established brand? A Micra would have to be pretty lousy to derail that train of thought.

    Forum is very helpful and interesting.

    I joined 7 days prior to deposit being made, and about 10 days after they started to look for the car.

    I didn't research the Micra prior to purchase, but preferred it over 2 competitors I looked at.

    I planned on buying a new car by August. when my conditional pass expired but saw the Nissan Sale last December and bought then instead.

    Had I done my homework prior to purchase and read the valuable posts on this forum, I would not have purchased the useless rust module, and possibly not the extended warranty. I would have negotiated more also. Live and learn, and happy to find the Micra Forum!
