    You can't compare a Micra to a Smart Car. I can carry 3 people in my car or a good quantity of boxes and other stuff.

    Mine is a 2015 and I wouldn't hesitate to buy a new one were one available.

    I had this happen frequently when my 2015 Micra was about a year old. The very helpful (ha ha ha) guy in the Nissan service department came out to the car and showed me how to put my gas cap on...

    I was away for 2 weeks from Victoria and when I came home, my 2015 Micra started just fine (I am so pleased). It is the second battery but has been in the car since it was 6 months old, so about 7...

    No snow on my recent trip across BC (missed it in one area by one day), but I had a LOT of rain, and on my way home, very heavy rain on the Lower Mainland. My new Nokian tires hugged the road...

    AND back again. Got up to 140 kph (don't tell the cops) passing someone on the Coquihalla. I will sure miss this car if/when I have to get a new car. Just 55,000 kms so a long way to go yet, I...

    Another successful trip

    Up and down and around the corner, and repeat a hundred times. The 1000 km trip from Victoria to Cranbrook made me realize (AGAIN!) how much I love my 2015 Micra. Able to pass when needed, no...

    Update. I did give it a smart smack, and something obviously "caught". So it is not longer loose but it is also not smooth where it meets the other bit. But I no longer fear it falling off, so...

    You probably won't need to replace the Firestones for 6 or 7 years, and there could be totally different tires around by then. I replaced mine after 6.5 years mainly because I have decided to keep...

    If you don't find one, just toss a sheet or blanket over everything. Could also come in handy if you ever need to warm up, dry off, etc.

    Another Tire Thread -- Buying!

    My tire size is 185/60R/15. I am going to buy all-weather tires.

    The garage where I usually go (not the dealer) has Kumho Solus HA31 in stock and the price is reasonable. My daughter has...

    Whatever price you are paying in the US, we are paying probably about double in Canada. And obviously right now I can't even drive to the US to buy my tires.
