2011 Nissan Juke SL 4dr Hatchback (1.6L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


The JUKE is let's say unique looking and I thought it was a joke of a car until I drove it.
It brought a smile to my face.
It is a very engaging car to drive, very spirited, and the seats are extremely comfortable, and definitely not found in cars at this price point.

We now have just over 20,000 miles on our Juke and to date it has been very reliable.
Inteior pluses are comforatbe seats, easy to read gauges, large rearview side mirrors.
wish there was a center armrest, window and door lock switches should light up, and wish there was ambient lighting.
Rear seat room should be increased a couple inches both in leg room and head room.
^th gear needs to be more fuel econmy minded.

Best Features

Engine & steering. Like the adjustable settings for steering and engine response. For $23390, it came fully loaded with leather seats, heated front seats, power mirrors, fully adjustable manual drivers seats (wish it was power), push button start, keyless entry with the new technologhy of just pushing a button on the door, auto climate control, aluminum wheels, moonroof, carpeted floor and trunk mat, & trip computer. I think for the money Nissan has built a fun to drive vehicle that has uniqueness and personality to it. Most vehicles in this price range are mundane and boring. The ride height make syou forget your in a small vehicle as does the way it absorbs road imperfections.

Worst Features

Center Arm Rest, 3-4 inches more of rear legroom, and 2-3 inches more of rear headroom. Improve trunk capacity a bit, or just make the load floor lower without having to remove it manually. Add more sound deading materials, road noise for the class is decent, but for $20 more in materials it could be superb. This car is quite fun, don't mess up it's uniqueness and fun to drive characteristics.
