      Reviews on the NISSAN Almera

      Hi guys!! was looking for a new car recently> took great interest into this car by NISSAN Nissan Almera LOOKS GOOD DOESNT IT!! Here are some review i got from one of straits time website. Description Good ol' austerity drive Despite a lack of frills, the Thai-made Nissan Almera gets you to your destination hassle-free By Christopher Tan Published: November 5 2011, The Straits Times ................................................................................ ............................................. When Japanese car manufacturers started to shift production to Thailand in the 1990s, they had two things in mind. One, to get around the high tariffs which many South-east Asian markets imposed on imported vehicles. Under Afta (Asean Free Trade Agreement), cars assembled in member states are subject to preferential taxes. Two, they were bracing themselves for a possible labour shortage back home. A number of plants in Japan were already relying on imported labour by then, even as companies were raising salaries to attract domestic workers. Toyota and Honda were the first. They launched Asean-specific models - the Honda City and Toyota Soluna (which became the Vios) - back in the mid- 1990s. While these cars have been selling like hotcakes in emerging markets in the region, they get a mixed reception in sophisticated Singapore. When COEs are relatively low, they cruise along the upper half of the sales chart. But when COEs are high (like now), they sputter. It does not help that Japanese manufacturers designate fairly basic models for the region - models that lack the bells and whistles increasingly common in other cars, even the once-austere Korean makes. The new Nissan Almera is the latest example. The carmaker's second Thai- made model to arrive here (the first was the March in February), the Almera goes head to head with Honda City and Toyota Corolla Altis. Size-wise, the Almera sits between the two other Thai-made Japanese rivals. But visually, it comes across as the biggest - possibly because of its height. At 1.5m, it is the tallest of the three. This trait translates to immense headroom in the car, which incidentally is not too shoddy in terms of legroom and elbow room either. Boot space, at 490 litres, is decent. While there is plenty of space in the Almera, there is not much else you can say about that space. The cabin is rudimentary, with a cockpit that is minimalist and an equipment level that might have been modest 20 years ago. Strangely, however, it does not add up to an altogether unpleasant experience. While the interior is unabashedly plasticky, it is not pretentious. Nissan has not attempted to dress it up with faux wood or gaudy metallic surfaces. The features are nothing to write home about. Manual air-conditioning controls, a sound system that sounds hollow and powered windows with no one-touch operation. The only concessions to modernity are electrically operated wing mirrors, a keyless access and ignition system, and a boot lid that can be opened from the rear (rather uncommon among Japanese cars). Its drivetrain is similarly simplistic: a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder that puts out less than 100 horsepower, mated to a four-speed autobox that does not have a manual override. If you want a five-speed transmission, you will have to choose the manual version. It has front MacPherson strut suspension and torsion beam for the rear. Although basic, the Almera betrays none of the harshness its more sophisticated siblings used to show whenever they went over a hump. The car gets front-ventilated disc brakes and drum brakes for the rear wheels. As expected, the Almera is not what anyone would call a driver's car. It has more body roll than a belly dancer - even at the slightest agitation. It lacks oomph and often requires high revs to get going. And its steering is loose and woolly. Despite all that, the car is not excruciating to drive. It has good all-round visibility, a relatively tight turning circle and it is a mind-numbingly easy car to operate. Which makes it ideal for driving schools. Being relatively lightweight, the car is fuel-efficient too. It is a rather stylish-looking car too, even if completely devoid of bling. The Premium version gets tan leather upholstery and 16-inch rims. Too bad Afta-compliant cars do not enjoy preferential tax treatment in Singapore. Note, it states that the car is the largest SEDAN of its range, in my opinion should be Toyota? Honda? How ever when i want to know is that other than SIZE, is it superior in other aspects? Engine efficiency? Air dynamics? Hope that you guys can help me with my decision making... FYI i'm more interested in Japanese made cars anyway if anyone is curious i got my link from here.

      Nissan Almera stalling issues

      Hi, I have an Nissan Almera 1.8 2004 MT Tried out some Engine Restorer Car stalled 4 times when clutch was down (low RPM) with the check engine, and check oil light on, check oil light came on just before the car stalled. Now the engine does not stall, and has no check engine or low oil light on, but has a rough idle (nearly stalls), im feeling so dumb i fought that this product would help with oil consumption, and now i could just end up with a dead engine? Help is much appreciated All the best Patrick
    3. Hi, anyone drove both the abv car before? Can help to advice which have bigger interior? Flying to Penang during May (4 adults + 2 kids (3&5 yrs old)), thinking to rent either one of it. Both are RM336 for 3 days rental from HAWK
    4. Hi there! I have just bought a Nissan Almera 1.8 from 2004 manual transmission. One thing i have noticed, is that it makes a slight whining sound that will pitch up with the engine speed and then the whining sound will disappear when the engine speed increasing I have recorded the noise with my phone https://instaud.io/1RR6 What could it be? All the best Patrick
    5. Driven In 140 Char: 2014 Nissan Almera 1.5 Comfort (A) Driven In 140 Char delivers itemized driving impression in 140 English alphabet characters (just like Twitter!). It proffers of an alternative to run-the-gamut mainstream with a no-holds-barred altitude and drivel perspective. Fast action drivers will love the quickie read. So, seat back. Pop the soda. Chill. Enjoy the ride. Driven on 2 March 2014 What is it? In '11 Nissan introduced 4-dr Almera as replacement for S'pore's ageing Latio sedan but left the unfortunate 5-door to soldier on till '13. Underpinning Thai-made B-segment Almera rides on Nissan-Renault's "V" platform which underpinned models in the alliance such as '10 Micra and '12 Clio. Ride & Handling Roly-poly through bends and corners. Supple shocks and good chairs make for cushy ride. Steering is nicely weighted but a tad blunt. NVH Does like it says on the tin: old school subcompact refinement from 10 years back. Fairly quiet about town but still rough around the edges. Powertrain Almera low-tech mill is coarse and cheap at higher revs. Lack of instant grunt in lower rev bands. 4-speeder auto 'box is prehistoric stuff. Cabin Dash: Hard and grainy plastics abound. I've seen better & padded dash on the Latio. Doors that shut like a tin lid of a Milo can is criminal. Controls: As the base variant don't expect all-singing-and-dancing stuff. Control stalks are well-oiled. Aircon is wintery but lacks digital readout. Space: High beltlines make looking down on curbs impossible. Rear leg and knee room rival new Lexus ES sedan's. Shoulder room limited at the back. Design Even frogs are perched, it's cooler to travel on public buses and trains than to sit inside a green house. A car for 1st time buyer only. What's in store Price:$117,800 (as tested) Power:99hp Torque:134Nm 0-100:13.7s Kerb weight:1,005kg Fuel economy:14.5km/l CO2 emission:159g/km Gallery
