    Just in for service a couple weeks ago and forgot to post but no new update. Of course the problem couldn’t be recreated because the engine was warm. They asked to have the car overnight but being the holidays I needed it. I used regular oil for the change but thinking synthetic may help with the cold starts. I see Moflow has posted the same issue so maybe just chalk it up to a Micra quirk.

    I use semi-synthetic and I have since brand new. I've chalked it up to a quirk. It's never been an issue

    literally me and moflow are clones....we have exactly the same car and exactly the same problem.....its not really a problem for me so far....its a quirk


    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!
