    Proud new Owner!!

    Hello all,

    Just thought I'd quickly introduce myself since I will likely be coming back here for most my information.

    I am a week in from my Micra purchase and am loving it. this is very different from from I normally drive. My other vehicle is a 2012 F-150 raptor, so there is a bit of a size difference.

    It's a 2015 with 199k kms on it. I got it on the cheap cause of the higher mileage for the year. First on the list to fix is the rear shocks. they are completely blown and the car gets a bit squirrely when I hit bumps at higher speeds.





    See you guys around

    the tiny car feels squirrely at high(er...i never go that fast really )speeds from day 1 and i have low profile tires!!

    but i'm not complaining....it is what it is.
    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!

    it is definitely a new feel that I'm not use to. but on the drive home after picking up the car, my wife told me that the the back passenger wheel had a lot of bounce when I went over bumps. so I checked the shock, and it's covered in dirt and oil

    after replacing the shocks I'll be looking for lowering springs and rims.
