I've had my Juke for 7 months and just over 8000 miles now.
I absolutely love how the car drives, I'm averaging 27mpg, and I haven't had any problems with it.
It is small (like Honda Fit small), but I knew that the first time I got in, and a roof rack has solved all my space needs.
I've upgraded to 225/60R17 tires which gave it around 1" of lift, bringing the ground clearance to 8". It can't handle rocks like an Xterra, Jeep, or other body on frame SUV, but dirt and sand are no problem at all.
I just wish the aftermarket would get behind the Juke, because I'm betting a tune will do wonders for both power and efficiency... and it needs undercarriage protection.
Small hatchback handling with ground clearance for whatever comes your way.
If there were a manual transmission + AWD option it would be just about perfect.
