In the early 90′s Nissan Primera was a big hit, then hurried to the average statistics. In terms of design the car is more of a “gray mouse”, but has a lot of hidden values. With the introduction of the Nissan model has become a constant in the middle class. Another step forward is a model change in fall ’96 sedan and hatchback versions were changed, the station wagon – Traveller (the old base) stuck in the middle of ’98 in the program. Recent significant changes in the first model: Since the ’95 car has two airbags as standard.

Despite first appearances with the Nissan Primera, presented in the ’96 version is based on the new platform. It also offers significant progress in terms of passive safety. Thanks to improvements in aerodynamics seriously reduce noise caused by air that had been heavily criticized in the first model.

In terms of the chassis, the new model also points troupe serious. The rear axle is technologically similar to the top model of Nissan – Maxima, which improves road handling significantly. The level of equipment is also at: ABS and servo are serial.

Changing the ’96 model significantly expand the range of engines. Together with two petrol taken from the old model, but modified 1.6 and 2.0 liters appeared two-liter turbo engine, but from ’97 and the powerful 150 hp version of GT. The most widely sold two-liter gasoline engine with 115 horse. Another alternative to the second hand market is also a common base 1.6-liter engine. 90 horse motor base sufficient for the weight of the body, and the cost is quite low.

Economy is the biggest advantage of the Primera TD, which has already compared to direct injection diesel engine has a scrap.

The invasion of the Japanese production in Europe in the 80s led to mass casualties among mainstream brands. Most affected by the invasion was Britain, where went bankrupt or were absorbed almost all the major domestic automakers. Ironically, the island became the new home for many Japanese companies have established branches there and began to attack the mainland. Besides Toyota, which was mentioned in the last issue, Honda entered the “continued cooperation” with expiring Rover, Nissan and opened one of the most modern factories in England say. The plant in Sunderland, started the production of Bluebird, topped the charts for years by productivity worldwide. The credit for this success are three models – Nissan Micra, Sunny / Almera and Primera. The last of these experiences for a third youth, after a year and a half of his debut next generation. Now, with lower prices significantly, his predecessors have enjoyed a higher market demand for used vehicles.

Unlike the newest member of the family Primera However, two previous generations could hardly boast of remarkable appearance. Although modernized several times, both generations of the bestselling shine with strength, reliability and near-optimal performance, but like most “Japanese girls” of those years literally blend into the background alongside their European competitors. This, of course, did not prevent them from having a table fan because of their proverbial bezproblemnost. In the case of the Nissan Primera, however picture is not so rosy color at the start of production in September 1990 the British involvement in the pipe makes a car and the first two years show a lot more disadvantages compared with the later production when the Japanese make the necessary to enforce appropriate standards.

Despite these shortcomings, “childhood”, any potential buyer Primera can rely on flawless body corrosion protection.

Rust attacks only hit or tuned cars which suit is “remodeling” of the fans of “The Fast and the Furious.” These cars are not a few, and only the presence of additional spoilers or other additions to the aesthetic appearance should serve as a warning.

To diseases of the growth removed promptly during the early years of his career mistreat fastened door seals, door lock problems on the fifth door hatchback and difficult refueling ambiguities for venting the tank.

Quite in line with European traditions Nissan Primera has a boring but well equipped and thoroughly thought through salon.

Compared to most competitors in the lower segment of the middle class, its size is more than adequate. All versions have an adjustable steering, stereo, electric pack, central locking. In cars produced in 1991, however the seat is breaking at the seams, heating is inefficient and dashboard distorted in places. After urgent measures such deficiencies have been rectified, but the speedometer readings chaotic, vibration in the crank unit diesels noises headrests in the back seat and rear window seal is found in the first generation cars of all ages. With the debut of the second generation in 1996, issues of this nature forever remain in history. Primera assembly is almost flawless and comes as standard and ABS.

As in other aspects of production, most registered shortcomings of the model in terms of the power part relate to 1990-1991, the first generation Nissan Primera is equipped with a 1.6-and 2.0-liter petrol engine with power 90/100 hp . and 115/130 for injection or carburettor version of the fuel system.

There are also two versions of the old two-liter diesel Nissan with 75 or 90 horses depending on the availability of the turbocharger. With the exception of 1800 cc unit entered service in 1999, the same range of motion, and the second generation Primera. Tip it is a version of the two-liter engine with 150 hp, installed version GT.

Experts say give preference to the big petrol engine that can handle a lot easier to weight the vehicle is very reasonable fuel consumption. The 1.6-liter engine has a bad performance, but fits over the Almera. Good reviews are heard and diesel, especially at its fuel economy. In naphtha modifications from 1995-1996, however, have reported many cases of excessive wear of timing belt, leading to serious consequences for many of them. In addition, diesel produces a strong resonance of exhaust muffler, which is transmitted to the body, though I mostly felt in the back seat.

Gasoline engine faults show mostly in cars from 1992 to the carburetor modifications suffer from impaired adjustments that are reflected in irregular engine operation. Loss of thermal isolated retaining screw plate cars threatens to 1993, and for all modifications noise arises where unite exhaust manifold and intake pipes.

Two-liter gasoline engine, mounted in the specimens to 1994, the threat of another potential flaw – worn bearings rods. Overall, however, Primera engines are typically Japanese – strong, reliable and unpretentious. Subject to the necessary operating conditions are able to survive without major repair to 350-400 thousand km.

and not very well threaten the cars produced in 1991-1992, synchronized fifth gear in such instances are often worn, and after 80,000 km trouble began switching to diesel modifikatsii.Ponyakoga fifth speed “seasoning” and just topversiyata GT turns off.

Japanese engineers are making a big effort to donate Nissan Primera with proper handling and stability. Both front and rear, the model is equipped with a sophisticated multi-link which ensures excellent road holding and comfort. Well, the ride is not exactly French, but the car does not move out of the way. The only drawback of this solution is the presence of numerous details, as assembled by rubber-metal bushings. This complicates and increases the cost of maintenance as rare to have one. In cars from all years of production, however, arise noise from the rear axle, which – if ignored – can easily lead behind unpleasant repairs. The second-generation model of Nissan engineers take their lesson and slightly simplified design of the rear axle.

Most criticisms of the quality Nissan Primera tolerated at the brake system.

The disadvantages here affects early production cars, which often arises vibration and rapid wear. Warped discs can become even a threat to security.

By 1994, many owners of diesel versions complain of overheated brakes. Fortunately, these defects are eliminated completely still during the production of the first generation and the second claims the braking system are not taken into account.

Disadvantages of wiring are many and can also be related to childhood diseases Primera, as the second generation practically absent. These include playfulness of the arrow in the index for fuel and equipment failures on the remote trunk. By 1993 sometimes occurs spontaneously and operated to lock some doors.

Nissan Primera can be safely called a recommended purchase, although some conventions. The second generation model is undoubtedly a more appropriate placement, but its size and it is. When choosing a car from the first generation to be sets of specimens produced from 1992-1993, or seek expert advice. Confident in the quality of the Primera, many buyers are trusting and only rig that wait.

Opinions and impressions of the owners of Nissan Primera

My personal opinion as the owner of the third Nissan .. Diesels are strong discipline of Nissan, although this particular engine was “engine of the year” in 1998 If you really like Primera, mandatory gasoline and possibly two-liter engine. Diesel or they do not shine with performance nor cost. As pain at all Nissan Primera can be given front upper wishbone. But has any pain and light There are options for changing only the bushings, there are cheap Korean carriers … Otherwise as a whole is very solid car. Est European assembly sometimes makes a difference. Consumables 2.0TD (CD20T): The engine wants nearly 6 liters of oil, oil filter costs between 10-15 euros depending on the brand of course there are variations MANN, which is about 30 euros. Air and fuel filters are about 10 euros. The bike has 4 strap and 3 rolls (from memory). As for comfort – standard with features and a great ride! Motor runs cool and quiet even when everything is in order. If you care info for petrol engines say. Here the situation is different.

Which petrol Nissan Primera been hobbled? Maybe 2.0 – 131 hp, 2.0 GT – 150 hp or maybe 2.0 STW = 180 hp? If you drove a 1.6 gas …. maybe. From 1.6 of this compartment think dynamics is more than decent. A maintenance costs 1.6 motor (GA16DE) are downright symbolic.

Colleagues have a Nissan Primera Estate 2.0 clean diesel. I can say that it is very very slow stumble car at high speeds. Overtaking on a highway a word can be done if there is no favorable wind for fuel but will not comment. Up to 100 extra approximately 6 liters from 9.5 to 10 130/100 urban cycle is 7.5 to 8.5 during quiet ride.

Now six years drive Nissan Primera, was the first gasoline 1.6 99 horse, I’m a two-liter petrol 150 donkeys. 1.6 went a little weak, the body, especially in douskorenie without changing gears. I would not call it slow, it’s not a plane. 2.0 petrol is another thing extra fuel is like a 1.6, but fun … As my colleague mentioned most sore spot is the upper brackets, but are generally cheap and easy to maintain cars. Diesel example I would not take, either because after many problems with previous cars did not like as diesel fuel or diesel because of the examples is the slow burn much makes problems with the pump and head …
