History of Nissan Primera
The Nissan Primera is a large family car produced for both the Japanese and European markets. The Nissan Primera is known to be a reliable car, but unfortunately for Nissan sales waned due to the rising popularity of MPVs and SUVs so production ended in 2006. Before production ended three generations of the Primera were built. The Nissan Primera is a efficient car in a pretty plain wrapper. Many owners are pleased with the reliability and running costs and enjoy the comfort offered by the vehicle.

The second generation Primera was once again available in hatchback and saloon body styles, plus an estate joined the lineup. The available engines were 1.6 and 2.0-litre petrols or a 2.0l diesel.
The Primera won the British Touring Car Championship manufacturer''s and team titles in 1998 and Nissan released the limited edition GTSE in celebration. There were only 400 GTSEs produced and they were easy to spot because of the ChromaFlair ''Mystic'' green paint that flips from green to purple to bronze.
