Long term tests

Nissan Micra 350SR

Our Micra's been recalled for a facelift and a winter rest

Every journey in the monster Micra is a thigh- and adrenalin-pumping adventure, but it looks like it might be off soon. Nissan wants it back at RML for a ‘refresh’, including fitting the revised nose of the 2008 Micra, before hibernating it away from the British winter.

I wonder if they can have a look at the clutch action too – it really doesn’t need to be so heavy. New tyres have also been mentioned. I reckon a set of Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetrics or Vredestein Ultrac Sessantas, which topped our recent tyre test, would make it more stable and exploitable. No less mad, obviously.
