    My 2016 Micra SV replaced a 2005 Hyundai Accent. With the general progress in cars over that 11 year time period, I find the Micra a superior vehicle in every way.

    I put Nokian all season with snowflake on mountain on my Hyundai Accent. They were so much better in every way than the Kumho tires the car came with. Better in the rain and better in the snow. ...

    The image on the tire is a snowflake on a mountain. They are required if you go up island and to Port Alberni or Tofino. Not sure if they are required on the Malahat.

    I use a solution of water , a few drops of dish soap and about a tablespoon of ammonia in about a liter of water. Apply with a clean rag and clear with a squeegee. If there are any bits of the...

    I followed the break in rules exactly. My past experience showed it works except for this car. My 1990 Mitsu Mirage (Dodge label) never burned a drop of oil in the 6 years and 100,000 Kms. ...

    Patty....... The price of a used car is very much a moving target. If you sell thru the internet or trade it in on something newer or sell it to your brother different factors come into play.

    2016 SV auto. Down 1/2 liter in 5100 km. I thought that at one previous change it was down a full liter but I never checked it after I had the oil change done. Now I check the level after...

    Quite right MetroMPG . There should be some symptoms. I would think the warranty should cover manufacturing defect.

    I was always under the impression that clutches were considered "wear" items and excluded from the warranty . A person who constantly rode the clutch or engaged in smoke shows could easily burn...

    I would add about 10% to your 5.4 litres. I filled my 2016 automatic to the point where gas was slopping but not spilling. Repeated next time and got 6.2 l/100km. The dash read out was 5.2. This...

    The Spark was a quieter car and the solar reflecting glass made the car quite a bit cooler in the summer than the Micra. However when I flipped the back seat down in the Spark I had to shove the...

    The Micra automatic also beats the official rating by a large margin. The worst winter time driving rating I have got is 6.2. The best was 4.7 on a secondary highway. I generally average ...

    Micra Guy

    Just punch the AC button if you don't need it for defrost. It turns off. I find lots of times I don't want to run the AC in defrost mode so I appreciate being able to turn it off.

    I have always liked Suzuki. I thought they had interesting styling and decent engineering. I still see loads o f Chev Trackers running around and lots of Suzuki SX4s. As I recall the Daiwookees...

    I think that Suzuki in North America got shafted by one of its biggest shareholders. General Motors owned 20% of Suzuki. When GM bought up the failing Daiwoo Company it needed to push product...

    re Versa seats...... They look like the ones in the Micra..... Both cars are made at the same plant with the same sub contractors....And yet.......... And yet when I sat in the Versa it felt less...

    I was very embarrassed when I tracked down a rattle. It was occurring when I went over any bump. After a couple of weeks of this irritation I put my hand on the dash ( which is where I thought it...

    9.5 years for me and also a 2005 Accent GSI. Bought it at two years old and 12, 000 km on the clock and traded it in on the Micra in 2016. I had a 1981 Toyota Celica that I bought new and...

    Add this to the other items deleted for 2017. I am thinking of the cargo cover and the sun visor extensions.

    The continuation of the current model Micra suits me fine. I have seen photos of the new model and do not care for the shrinking rear windows which make the car look like many other up to the minute...

    The CVT was a big reason for not choosing the Versa. I liked the extra room in the back seat and trunk but I just couldn't get comfortable behind the wheel. In an earlier post I said I didn't...

    I don't miss the analog gauge enough to do anything about it. The digital gauge does allow for interesting info bites like current consumption, average etc. which I think is great.

    I am getting...

    I would rather have an analog gas gauge. The digital one can be five liters off . I also miss the temperature gauge. This is the first car that I have had in the last 50 odd years that doesn't...

    I thought that the door locking was for people who lived in bad neighbourhoods. They wouldn't have to worry about some guy pulling the door open while they were stopped at a light. I find it a...
