2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Wanna See a Neat Trick?

February 02, 2011

First off, I love this little car. It's so fast and such a blast to drive. Was so lucky to have it for a couple of days. Found it perfect for getting around the city what with maneuvering around sloww drivers on the freeway, finding parking spaces (it fits in my tiny garage with ample room to spare) and just flat-out fun.

But what was extra cool was the above "magic" show. Climate control and "D-Mode" (Driver Mode) share the same six buttons and screen and can be switched by hitting a button. Great way to really mess with your passenger's mind. "Heyyy, I just saw the A/C button. Where'd it go?"

The only "issue," though, is that the driver mode doesn't stay in the mode you left it in when you restart the car. No biggie but could be bothersome. Apparently the owner's manual doesn't cite a way to change this.
