Used Nissan For Sale
Love the easy life? If so, buy Nissan as nicely maintained examples last longer than Egyptian mummies. Low cost, second-hand, highlights include the 1993 to 2002 Micra that can be picked-up for virtually nothing. This supermini is popular with new drivers as it is cheap to insure, spare parts are easily available in scrap yards, and it is pleasant to drive (considering its age). As such, it is snapped-up quickly so pounce on any recent example that has a reasonable service history, fair mileage, new MOT, and no significant faults. The larger Nissan Almera - despite looking more dated than Tutankhamun's trousers - is also fantastic value for money. Furthermore, the Primera Hatchback/Estate tends to run to high mileage and there are a reasonable number on the market with plenty of life remaining. Aim for either the P11 generation (1999 to 2002) or the P12 (2002 to 2006) as earlier models now look and feel very dated. Favoured trims include the P12 SVE which is particularly good value as it is better equipped than most brand new cars. Toys include the: reversing camera, leather heated electric seats, automatic wipers, and built-in satellite navigation. Great choice for family buyers that love gadgets.
But let us move forward in time. The Nissan Qashqai+2 is a crossover vehicle that incorporates strengths from three other classes. It therefore has seven seats (like a multi-purpose vehicle), a large boot (like an estate car), and in high-spec form four-wheel-drive (like a Land Rover). No wonder this workhorse costs a pretty penny even when it is a few years old. The "standard" Qashqai, in contrast, is more affordable second-hand as it was introduced earlier, has five seats rather than seven, and a smaller boot. Nissan also produces traditional four-wheel-drives such as the Pathfinder that can plough through extremely tough terrain. So, whereas most are never subjected to anything more challenging than the school run buyers should check for signs of off-road use. These include damage beneath the floor and evidence that a winch has been bolted to the front. A picture of it stuck in an Egyptian sand storm is a further warning sign. Sports car lovers, in contrast, might prefer the Nissan GT-R or the Nissan 370Z Coupe/Convertible. However, many of these performance cars have been thrashed by boy racers so best choose carefully. Wonder what King Tutankhamun would have driven?
