About Nissan JUKE

When it debuted five years ago, the Nissan Juke was ahead of its time – a subcompact- crossover SUV with sporty ambitions and high style that stood out in a sea of larger, blander SUVs. Nowadays the subcompact-crossover SUV segment is booming with fresh arrivals like the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V, Chevy Trax, Fiat 500X and the Jeep Renegade. But to its credit, the Juke continues to zig where others zag. Nissan's smallest crossover SUV still looks like nothing else on the road with style you'll love or hate, and it prioritizes sporty performance over passenger- and cargo-carrying utility. The 2016 Juke offers a lot of fun for around $21,000, and is even available in souped-up Nismo RS form that packs 215 horsepower.

"Overall rating of 2 due to lack of reliability and value. In summary, it is the worst vehicle purchase decision I have made. At 55,000 miles, the engine failed due to timing chain failure. Nissan admitted I was not notified of recall. Engine was replaced under warranty. The work was most likely subbed out and after market parts used without my knowledge. Caused many subsequent issues. Now at 80,000 miles and thousands of dollars of other related repairs later, my turbo is blown. Another $3K in repairs needed with NO guarantee that the 2nd engine has not been affected. Of course I received the same explanation as other jilted Juke owners... improper care. Never been serviced anywhere other than Nissan dealership. Calls to Nissan North America are either unhelpful or not returned. Overall, I loved the car once upon a time. Fun to drive, great interior, many complements but totally unreliable and poor mechanic quality where it matters most for a large investment. I still owe on the vehicle and have decided to part ways. I've always owned my cars for 10+ years and well over 100K miles. Sad to say this will not be the case with my Juke. Be very cautious moving forward with this vehicle!"

"I like this car very much. Its compact and I can get in and out of parking spaces easily. I wish it had more room inside for cups and junk (pens, etc)....and I wish it had a 6cd player. The color is nice and I get alot of compliments from females. Its bigger than the newer jukes and behind the wheel I feel I am off the ground a bit."

"Love the look and the speedy acceleration but not satisfied with the space(storage)or the rough ride. The sound system is not that great as well. I am already considering trading after only having it a year."
