haha I watched the first season of Top Gear a few days ago and Clarkson kept bashing the 2003 Micra
You really need a bumper sticker saying *my other ride's a mustang*
I understand why. It's completely uninvolving to drive. The steering is WAY too assisted and gives zero feedback, the clutch is as light as a feather. The ride is quite good though.
I can see why old people like them: Easy on the withered old arthritic joints
It's dull as dish water! It is quite a relaxing place to be though on the daily commute.
It's SORN and MOT-less at the moment, but we have plans
hey guys, whats going on in here?
They're pretty good, and get me from Point A to B
@Krikkit & Da_Rude_Baboon, Nice subie! I cant wait to get my hands on a WRX STI
I cycle/bus/train/walk pretty much everywhere.
Just took it out from winter storage:
Looks like it's still rather wintery there sleepstreamer!
If you want a really relaxing car to drive try an automatic Focus. It's my current (pimp) ride and I nearly fell asleep driving through a Manchester traffic jam the other day. Bit bigger than your Micra though.
Did the original daily die in a spectacular engine-eating moment? I wish there was video of that.
Haha yeah, she just needed some fresh air tbh. Won't be on the road until all the snow is gone
How are they for salt on the roads in sunny ol' Sweden?
It hasn't been that bad since it's been such a cold winter this year, but usually they splash it on 24/7. My everyday drive has had it's wheel arches chewed on quite badly this year despite the low temperatures :/
You're blatantly a pimp. 300zx + Bright yellow + targa, if I see correctly.
Yeah, a pimp.
Hah, wasn't it Clarkson the almighty who described it as a pornographers car? I know my TG quite well so I'm assuming I'm right
Tbh I did want a black one, but seeing how hard it is to get hold of an unmolested one of these in Sweden yellow would have to do. Though you UK guys don't have that problem thanks to all the imports
Ever heard of a paint booth?
Yes, him I forgot it was pornographer. Pimp is close enough. Swedish women... yeah.
Is this close to what you envisaged?
Nope, nothing like what I envisage Swedish women to be like... they're all wearing clothes...
My ride for the last month in Kent,WA.
Actually, this is the second one. 1st red one had 1K miles on it when I rented it and this one had 97.
National Rental has lots of them in Seattle. I'll take it back Friday noon and pick up another car when I get back to Kent Sunday morning.
another 36 hr weekend spent at home in Westminster.
