The JUKE is fun, sporty, great gas mileage!
By alidab on


2012 Nissan Juke SV 4dr Hatchback AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Never bought a Nissan in my life. Was at car lot with sister in law, as she wanted an Altima (WHY? I thought).

Saw this COOL looking, froggy car with black leather (heated) seats with red baseball stitching...looks inside like an airplane with the RED hard doors/dash.

Exterior is the gun metallic. The car is for single person or SMALL family ..don't plan on putting four people's camping supplies in it for the week! THe back seat does go down, making it larger if no passengers in back.

The gas mileage---one has to manually put it in "econo" mode...and drive it like Granny would. If you put it in sports mode and use the paddle shifter-like it was a manual trans, you get performance !

Best Features

The exterior looks of the car can be mistaken with NO other car. It's unique. It's fun. It's sporty. IF that describes YOU< then perfect exterior. Interior, fun red painted door inserts and by the shifter control. Great speakers/radio. Navi is fine, works great. Handsfree phone, easiest to use that I've found so far. HEATED seats!!!!! HIGH off the ground, so no worries in rain, low dips in road or high parking cement stops. All great with this car! Back up camera in color and awesome! The car screams, "Fun, Fun, Fun!" and it is fun, fun, fun!

Worst Features

Needs a tad more cargo room ( or going up to the other models that are larger). Needs driver's side electric 6 way seat for perfect vision past the large side view mirrors. Because no key entry/start be careful not to leave the car in "drive" when you exit the car...it has a loud alarm/signal to warn you to check, but car can roll away!!!
