    First long drive with our new Micra

    We got back home last week after a five days trip including two days on the road driving 10 hours each day. Our Smiley did very well. Quiet, good handling on the highway, a bit sensible to side wind (it was gusting 100 km/h. at one point) and we needed some stops to give a break to our butts. Globally very satisfied with the experience!

    100kmh gusts are serious but as per my persona experience on micra i found that its handling gusts better at high speeds 120-140kmh. At 70-90kmh with gusting winds its hard to control.

    That's funny, on a long gusty period (they recorded 107 km/h wind in Montreal when we where oj the 40 highway) during our trip, our stability system went on and stayed there for a long time. We were driving about 100-110 kmm/h.
