Nissan Almera Review

History of the model

Nissan Almera

2005 Nissan Almera

9/95 Presentation of the model in three variants: a hatchback with three or five doors and four-door sedan. Two airbags series. Engines: 1.4 liter 75 hp or 1.6 liter 90 hp
6/96 New engines: 2.0 liter diesel with 75 hp and GTi with 143 hp
9/97 ABS standard on all models 3
/ 00 Facelift. New engines: 2.2 liter DI diesel with direct injection and 110 hp and two petrol – 1.5 liter 90 hp and 1.8-liter with 114 hp
7/00 Presentation Model Tino – a minivan based on Nissan Almeria.
10/02 Processed engines: 1.5-liter petrol engine has 98 hp and 1.8-liter has 116 hp

Technical innovations have the power of Almeria, maybe that’s what is so reliable.
The first generation was attacked by critics as too dull and inconspicuous. On the second hand market successor Sunny emerged as the ideal choice for those who place first in importance discreet transportation at reasonable conditions.

The car has a very good spatial relations. With the exception of front seats a bit short, the conditions correspond to the notion of a family car. The wide space inside the car, but at the expense of the trunk so that the family holiday trips roof is made mandatory. More space available only sedan with four doors, but it is much less common in the market.

From a technical perspective there is no innovation. Motors 1.4 and 1.6 petrol need very high speed to show his strength. They are, however, cultured and reasonable cost. Even the base 1.4-liter is sufficient. Diesel and GTi are rare in the market. Old diesel versions are selling very profitable second hand, although noisy and lazy. Truly interesting are direct-injection units, which appear only after facelift in 2000, however they provide more defects than normal.

Regarding the behavior of the road almost no cause for criticism. The long wheelbase less limited maneuverability, but in turns and straight Almeria kept very quiet. Comfort is somewhat limited by the settings of the drive (hard and soft spring shock absorbers). Although the car is very reliable in typical Nissan style and build quality is excellent, there are unpleasant noises that are frustrating. In earlier models there is a problem with the ABS-old, who later was successfully removed.

Engines and modification of Nissan Almera

Impressions of the interior of NISSAN ALMERA:

quality materials in most Japanese cars, relatively comfortable seats even for a long time, I would say more interior space in its class, good visibility even from the rear window, the controls for perfectly placed for headlight has a lot to be desired (at least of mine), normal rack given the size of the car and the interior

Impressions of the engine / transmission, power, flexibility, fuel for NISSAN ALMERA

2005 Nissan Almera

Engine starts on -20 degrees smoothly (tested), very robust and resistant to damage the engine, clean diesel goes pretty snappy, keep your extra 130-140, places and more maximum power reached between 2500 to 3500 rpm, works very evenly, but the noise level is quite high and outside and inside the car.

Impression management / suspension, stability, ride a NISSAN ALMERA:

very little control rather hard, but hard suspension, lightweight brakes respond immediately even with a light touch. I drove it with summer tires 195/55/15 – hard resistant and scary cornering and winter – 185/65/14 – if there is not need someone to push me in the big snows. Excellent management and sustainability (as compared with the Opel Astra Sedan ’92)

Main disadvantages of NISSAN ALMERA:

very large parasitic noise and engine noise, poor headlights. The rest is perfect for a car in this class

Main advantages of the NISSAN ALMERA:

low – 5.5 urban, very strong engine and suspension – for two years only changed components.

Features support for NISSAN ALMERA:

I impressed, because I have not had problems. For two years I have changed two mortisyora who had to change as I bought it, two axles of the muff and others. Supplies

Salon is comfortable enough for passengers in the front and rear seats, this is due to the longer wheelbase. The ride is somewhere between German and frenskita analogues. Definitely comfort as compared Golf is palpable. Materials are durable and pleasant to the touch. Especially my piece is a leather steering wheel, gearshift and handbrake. Access and visibility to the devices on board is gorgeous. Everything is in the right place. El package works flawlessly. Often we have to drive a distance of 200-300 km and comfort is very good, the seats are very comfortable. The air conditioner worked well. Heating is great, no problems in the winter for heating and defrosting the windows. Front visibility is very good, with the exception of the left column on a left turn, but May is true for all cars. Visibility to the rear is acceptable. The headlights are el.reguliruemi height and well lit. The car has halogens, but I rarely have to use them. Wipers are good in my model has many degrees, but slow degrees, can not always hit the exact speed of cleaning. Well back clean, but quite small area. The trunk is relatively small, but good enough for 2-3 people. If you fold the rear seats opens a huge space is not a problem to ride refrigerators, stoves, etc.

Japanese craftsmanship! This is the main engine. Work evenly clock. G does not burn oil. Perfect cooling system. Heat for 3-4 minutes, standing in this position, and if you drive 300 km. Is quiet, although a loop. This is an advantage because there is no timing belt and rarely need replacement. The engine is MPFI and as his handing, the poem. If you wish you can almost always go to the first traffic light, which often angers some “racers”. Otherwise I sportyaga aggressive, the car drives up to 120 km / h and a little more urban highway. Naturally, his power is 2000 rpm upwards, which is even lower for a gasoline engine. From 3000 up simply unstoppable. Very often when overtaking of about 100 km / h in fifth, just press the throttle and overtake while the car is 140 km / h, let alone if you remove gear down. In short, the car accelerates fine almost any speed, revolutions and beyond. Nothing did not touch the engine yet, and most people say that’s such engines. Perfect engine and 6 + is a little! Speeds are relatively short. It is noteworthy that few specific shift, as the fourth is close to two. Shortly pridranchavat when changing times. For me it is an inconvenience, but if you drive a car for the first time may be uncomfortable. The back is not always enter at once, but that’s because not synchronized and applies to pretty cars. The cost of gasoline is a solid 6.5 per-urban and urban 10, I think this suits me perfectly, and I’m not a supporter of gas systems.
