2011 Nissan Juke: Peeling Paint

December 29, 2011

We've reported that some owners of the Juke have had problems with paint chipping; seems to be a much-discussed thing on many Juke forums. Well, it looks like we're starting to have some paint-job problems of our own.

The photo above is of the Juke's passenger-side front door handle. Doesn't look too good, and it's obviously not the kind of thing that you can blame on flying rocks or riding the bumper of the car in front of you on the highway. This handle is the only one with this problem; the paint on the driver-side front door handle is fine.

Probably something for us to mention during our next trip to the dealer. We'll let you know what develops.
