***UPDATE: Everything has been sold***
Sadly I had to say goodbye to my 2015 Micra SR.
On my way back to Montreal from Ontario just after New Years I was involved in an accident on the highway. A woman who wasn't paying attention tried to change lanes and bumped the car beside her causing her to lose control and spin and come to a dead stop sideways right in front of me. I tried to swerve out of the way but ended up clipping her front fender. I should note the weather was really bad. Visibility was really low and the roads were incredibly slippery.
It took a while for me to post this because my insurance company had a lot of trouble getting all the information they needed from the Quebec police and the other party's insurance company. Then the adjuster in Quebec took his sweet ass time to look at the car. The computer software the adjuster used to fill out the paper work was not compatible witht he software my insurance company uses so it had to be converted over taking even more time. UGH!
NEVER GET INTO AN ACCIDENT IN QUEBEC WITH ONTARIO INSURANCE!
So here is what my poor Micra looked like after the accident.
Now to the good news!
I still have my SR wheels/tires and I will be putting them up for sale. They are currently being stored at my sister's place in Ontario. They are in great condition and were only used in the summer. There are no scratches or dents in the wheels and the tires still have plenty of life in them. I'll take some pics when I go back to Ontario to visit.
I also have my summer mats and the original owners manual if anyone is interested.
I think I still have the original HVAC knobs too.
I also have these miscellaneous Micra related items.
1/ Wiring harness and towing ball attachment for towing a trailer (Never used)
2/ Can of Red Alert(?) spray paint (I used a little to paint my shark fin antenna) There's maybe 2/3 of a can left.
3/ Touch up paint pen (Red Alert)
Some of you might be wondering what I'm driving now. It's not a Micra. I considered getting another one but after doing some research I found some better options, at least for me. I wanted to get a 2018 Hyundai Accent hatchback after seeing it and sitting in it at the Montreal Auto Show. Unfortunately they are not available in Canada yet. So I got the next best thing. It twin sister the 2018 Kia Rio 5 EX Sport.
So far after a few days of ownership I have to say I really like it. Even if it's an automatic. Manual transmission is only available on the lower trim levels.
Anyway, that's all. Sorry for the super long post. I'm not planning on leaving the forum just yet. I'll lurk around from time to time.
I'll let all of you know when I put up the "For Sale" ad for my Micra parts online.
