Sally - 2004 Nissan Almera 1.5 SVE

Post by Gem » 07 Feb 2016, 15:53

So, with all the recent issues with the Fabia, I decided it was easier to get rid and get something that would be a 'Forever' Car... so hunted around and found this beauty.

2004 Nissan Almera 1.5 SVE

Spec:
* Aircon
* Climate Control
* Drinks holders :d
* Electric Sunroof
* Manual
* Mot Until February 2017
* New Tyres
* PAS
* Petrol
* Reverse Parking Sensors
* Sat Nav

Needs the polybushes & brakes looking at but other than that it's mint. No scratches or dents, well one very slight dink on the boot but otherwise it's mint. Managed to get 43.8MPG out of it on the way home.

I work for a Nissan franchise in parts. So I can have a look at bits and pieces if needed.

Although we don't deliver / post I'm sure I could sort something.

Also some Almera's have an airbag recall outstanding on them so contact your local dealer, they are being done at the moment we do about 4 a day. Test to see if there are any leaks and if there are, airbag gets swapped.

Thank you, i'll have a nosy, I've not noticed any problems with it yet. 1st Day of ownership and the engine light came on. Seller did a diagnostics test and it came back as Bank 1 Lamda Sensor. Is that an urgent kinda thing?

Honestly it is, it's immaculate inside and out apart from the tiny dink on the boot. There's no holes in the interior either. :lol:

I was meant to be having it free of charge, but I drove it and I couldn't get along it, so we made the choice to sell both cars and get a smaller family car that was spacious.

Thank you, my dad had his primera 12 years so hoping my luck lasts that long, it certainly hasn't with my previous cars. =))

That will just be an oxygen sensor.

Will just find the car struggling to start from time to time until it gets worse. I will find a price for you tomorrow for a rough idea

I'd guess the sensor will be around £60 - there will be cheaper "universal" ones on ebay when you have to cut your loom and solder the new sensor in - i'd avoid if possible! Fitting is easy enough if you can get access to it - getting the current rusted in one out is the most difficult but its a bolt out/bolt in job. There may be 2 sensors on it, one pre cat and one post cat so make sure you buy/replace the right one.

I'd try and do it soon as possible though, faulty O2 could mean unburnt fuel going into the exhaust and could cause cat damage. At the very least fueling will be out and you'll be using more fuel and fail your mot!

On the plus side, my Dad had 2 almeras many moons ago, the second one was this shape and whilst not inspiring to drive in anyway it was as solid and reliable never a hint of mither! - You'll be very unlucky if you have problems!

Thanks, it's booked in across the road for the 24th Feb. Unfortunately I haven't got the time or money to get it in before then.

MOT isn't an issue. It's not due til Feb 2017. :d
