drove the micra for the first time this morning. unstable isn't the word. granddad agrees it needs to be lowered a little. not too much though
What sort of mileage is on it? I hired a 1.0l one back in 95 for a trip to the North from Manchester, and we had a photographer from Denmark with us who wanted to catch sunset over Loch Lomond so it was pedal to the metal all the way! It was actually pretty nippy and stable, even with three full grown adults and loads of music gear and such.
Perhaps it just needs a shocker or springs to firm it up. Nice little car.
its now got 96,540 but runs sweet as a nut, not long ago did the pads all round on it and put new fluid in and didn't notice anything up with suspension when I was doing that but probably old and worn now, going to wait for a bit of money to come in then insurance to go out to see if I have enough to get the bits to do suspension all round, if I can get some ill get adjustable shocks etc then get it on the lift at college and get it all done. just doesn't feel right going around corners at all, granddad reckons it wants dropping 40ml all round.
it carries me and occasionally it will carry my small tool box but that's about it, at a push well shove the gf and the gfs nephew in the back and pram in the boot but its never going to carry a massive load, mostly just going to get used for running to the shops, occasionally school run and getting to and from college when its pissing it down/when I can ride again.
