Got an M reg Micra, it has been rolled into walls, broken into twice so replaced the door (green one onto a white car, I like it!) had the battery replaced once after it was totally run out and started to get a bit temperamental. It is actually my fianceé's and she has had it for 4 or 5 years I think.
Driven as hard or easy as I like and it hasn't missed a beat, keep expecting it to fail the MOT badly but just needs the odd tweek.
I would heartily recommend one.
EDIT- one bike wheels off in the boot, easily, could fit two but they would be on top of each other so use a rack if taking two.
