2016 Nissan Juke S 4dr Hatchback AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

I had heard that the Nissan Juke was known for its significantly problematic continuously variable transmission (CVT). I really loved the shape and turbo performance of the vehicle, so I bought it and put thousands of saved money towards the purchase. Once the car hit 34,000 miles, the transmission went and had to be replaced. The dealership basically indicated that I was being overly concerned since "it's covered under warranty". Firstly, I like to travel and don't appreciate getting stuck with a broken down car with no working transmission. Secondly, it is great that it's covered under warrantly; however, when I purchase a vehicle, I plan on having it past the 100,000 mile warranty. I've purchased many vehicles in my lifetime and drove them far beyond 100,000 miles. As soon as they replaced the transmission, I traded it in at a different dealership and I made sure that my second new vehicle does NOT have a CVT! They are cheap transmissions. Unfortunately, many new vehicles on the market are using CVTs. I paid a lot of money for a car that I kept for less than 2 years. I say shame on Nissan Motor Company as I do believe they know of this significant issue but continue selling these cars. I contacted Nissan Motor Company, but they couldn't care less.

2016 Nissan Juke SL 4dr Hatchback AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo CVT)


Review

I love my little juke - it flies along very nicely. Still aclimating myself to the cameras and using them for parking. It's a tiny car but, I have to repark to get it straight, when I use the cameras. reverted back to the mirrors. Mileage is awesome. This is a one-person car so the back seats rarely get used.
