2011 Nissan Juke: Scratched Center Console
May 20, 2011
When I first checked out the Juke's cabin, my thought was, "I'm not sure if all that metal-look trim on the center console is the most practical idea."
Seemed like the trim -- which, says Nissan, was inspired by, of all things, a motorcycle's gas tank -- would be prone to scratches. And guess what, it looks like the whole situation is indeed scratch-prone. Spotted a scrape during my time in the car last night. It's more obvious in person than it is in this photograph.
Sometimes those design peeps need to take a long, hard look at functionality before they go traipsing down the road less traveled. I wonder what that console will look like by the end of the test?
