Hi Shirley,

Generally speaking, the Micra (especially the 2002-onward model, which is probably the best Micra there's ever been) is something of a gold standard for reliability, but there are a couple of small recurring items to look for. The immobiliser system can sometimes go a bit haywire and drain the battery, the seat adjustor cables can snag, the boot and door seals occasionally leak and if you hear a knocking noise from the steering on full lock it means the front suspension is out of alignment.

Other than that, cracking little car and it should give years of solid service.
