2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Pontoon Front Fenders

August 30, 2011

Because of its short overall length, you would think that our long-term 2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD would be easy to park. And for the most part, it is. However, it's hard to tell where the front end of the car is when parallel parking due to the pontoon-like front fenders. With the Juke's front visibility, I have difficulty figuring out where the corners of the car are.

And on top of that, it's just plain weird to see the marker lights -- which really look like headlights -- when you gaze out over the hood and the fenders.
