    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...

    Finally got my new tires today. Nokian WGR4 - all weather tires. Ride seems good, they grip the road well (although I have only done city driving today with them) and, most important, they LOOK...

    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.

    And Honda has dropped the Fit, which I have had and would buy again. Taking away all our small car hatchback choices. Decided to keep my Micra now (only 50,000 km) because there is really...

    I'm not sure about taking advice from someone known as Rupert Rabbit but ha ha ha.... but, after another talk with my daughter this weekend, who also raves about both the Nokian and the service from...

    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...

    Definitely required on the Malahat, but you can get around that by taking the Brentwood Bay to Mill Bay Ferry. Not required as far north as Nanaimo which is as far as I would go in a normal winter
  8. Whatever price you are paying in the US, we are...

    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.

    I don't need winter tires -- I...
  9. TIRES (Advice for all-season tire that sees snow only occasionally?)

    I have had my 2015 Micra SR since new and I have decided I will stop looking at other vehicles and just keep it --- for the foreseeable future. I have 50,000 kms on the tires, and my mechanic...

    Ha ha ha. We get a lot of rain here, so it hasn't been necessary...

    No, actually...... I wonder if I have been using the right thing when I wash my car. OR, as I said, I somehow have...

    I suspect that it probably is film buildup over the past 6 years. I haven't done anything about the cabin filter yet. I will try the Dawn Advance 3X idea when I remember to buy some.

    In...

    I must admit that I don't clean the dash board regularly, if at all..... so maybe it is something rising from there. Off to do that right now! :-)

    I am using the "natural" equivalent of Windex. A friend who had my car for 2 weeks about a month ago used straight vinegar.

    I am always on fresh air intake (never recycled) but checking the...

    *Almost* at 50,000 on my 2015 SV. Bought it new - 6 years old mid September. If my daughter didn't live on the other side of the province, I'd be done about 10,000 on that number.
  15. How to reduce Window Glare from film building up on glass?

    This is probably more of a general question than a Micra specific question but.... I've had my Micra for 6 years now. I am having a terrible time with a film buildup inside the car affecting the...

    I had a 2007 Fit --- until I got my Micra in 2015, because it was several thousands of dollars less. I loved it. But maybe things have gone downhill at Honda, like everywhere else.

    I'm...

    I think it is a big mistake to cancel the Micra. Nissan seems to introduce cars way too frequently, and cancel them just as quickly. I wouldn't get a Versa to replace my Micra.... I'd go over...

    I think the parts are the same or very similar to the Versa. So unless that is being cancelled to, we should be okay. I also thought that the Car Companies were required by law go keep parts...

    My car is 5 years old now. Just 40,000 kms. No real plan to sell it as it works for me BUT every so often I think about getting an electric car. Maybe not yet though.

    How will this affect the resale price of the Micra?
  22. Thank you. This is more of an explanation than...

    Thank you. This is more of an explanation than I got from the dealership. This happened a few years ago and since they found and tightened(?) the connection, no further problems. Knock wood.

    We have a very good Nissan dealership here in Victoria, but I think they didn't do anything until the third time I was at the shop with the light on. The first time, one of the service guys came...

    I found the invoice
    It was a leak at the vent control valve that they fixed under warranty.

    There WAS something wrong with the engine. Of course I can't remember what it was, but I left the car with them at the time. When my neighbour returns my car, I'll see if I have any statement...
