What do I need to know about Micras?

I'm going to look for a car I've seen for sale in a magazine classified ad. It's a five-door 2005 Nissan Micra 1.2S with 73,000 miles on the clock. I don't know the condition, but the pictures look fine - and the listing states it's good inside and out; and drives well.

I want to equip myself as much knowledge as possible of the car's faults before I buy it.

Cute looks. Not very different from the Fiat 500.
