2011 Nissan Juke Long-Term Road Test

2011 Nissan Juke SL: Waffling

August 25, 2011

No waffling on whether or not I like the Juke. I do. Not quite enough to buy one, but not because of any serious flaws. Just not my preference. Otherwise, the Juke is a fun, whippy downtown car that looks bizarre and can snag a tight parking space without fuss.

But I'm not ambivalent about the door's waffle-cloth armrest material. Probably seemed like a hip idea at the time, but when wearing a short-sleeve shirt, it's just scratchy elbow sandpaper. There's gotta be some kind of Sanrio covering we can buy for this.
