2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test


2011 Nissan Juke: Oh Noes

May 16, 2011

After my brother lamented about how his 2011 Nissan Juke's paint was vulnerable to chipping, I kept meaning to check on the status of our own Juke's paint. Today after the weekly car wash I took a close look at its hood. And found this gnarly chip...

Fortunately that was the only one I spotted and it's actually not the gouge that the picture above makes it appear to be. (Sorry, should have put a penny or something next to it for scale.) If this were my car, I'd be bummed as well. As it is, my brother said he now prefers driving in the city rather than the highway because he deems it less dangerous to his paint job. Aw.

Don't know how we managed to avoid getting our paint chipped more considering the Juke goes through a variety of drivers, and most of the editors have long commutes to work via the highway.

By the way, the mottled coloring in the picture is actually a reflection of the clouds, just in case you were wondering.
