    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...

    Ha ha ha. I've never reached 140 before and actually didn't realize I had reached that speed. I remember my first time driving through mountainous BC in my Micra -- the thought crossed my mind...

    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...

    Thanks -- I'm a 71 year old woman who knows the steering wheel, the gas tank, and how to put air in the tires.... PERIOD. I doubt it will fall off because when I am driving, of course it is with...

    I don't know if this is the same thing. Today I parked facing forward and was, unbeknownst to me, on a high curb. When I backed out, I heard a crunching/grinding/awful sound. Didn't think too...

    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...

    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

    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...
  16. 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...

    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.

    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.
  22. 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...
