2011 Nissan Juke: Insufficient Interior Lighting
April 05, 2011
There are several controls in the Nissan Juke which are low in the cabin and sheltered under some design elements. The mirror controls, for example, are down and to the left of the steering wheel. In the above picture can you see where they are? They are above the two glowing lights.
You can see them here when I use my camera's flash.
Underneath the climate controls, I found the USB port but only with the flash. It is tucked under a plastic lip.
These features are not lit on their own so you can't see them in the dark. You can't even see them during the day in our parking garage. That's when I took the darker pictures.
Even with the overhead lamp on, the lighting is so dim and the plastic elements block the view, that you can't see them. This needs some rethinking, especially for the mirror controls.
