2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: A Real Hazard
June 03, 2011
Now that's a well-placed, well-sized hazard button in the Nissan Juke. Off on its own, up high, nice and large.
Which is probably of little concern to most, but when you live in an area where the traffic goes from 80 mph to a dead stop, back to 80, then back to a dead stop quicker than you can say "Southern California drivers truly suck," well, you'd understand why it's utterly important to be able to find the hazards quickly and easily.
As someone who has been rear-ended twice, so to speak, in test cars, I've learned to reach for those flashers to warn the person bearing down on me that traffic is completely stopped; you never know if they are actually paying attention. More usually they're texting, checking e-mail, talking on the phone, putting on makeup, shaving...basically anything they can possibly find to keep them from, you know, concentrating on their driving.
So yeah, thanks Nissan for an easy-to-find hazard button in the Juke.
