Purchased As New
I like to think of the Juke SL as a $28,000 dune buggy. It's a great ride, with stiff yet comfortable suspension. If you want a comfy cushy ride, go elsewhere. Yeah, the cabin is a bit noisy but people who buy this car usually have the music blaring anyway (myself included). I had a blast driving it -- the best part was passing on the freeway because its acceleration at 60mph is awesome. The main problem I have with the car is that it's a lot of money to pay for so little storage. The only covered storage in the cabin is an oversized glove box that opens so that everything falls out. It's also too far from the driver to reach all the way inside. An armrest with storage would be nice for the $28K price or even a tucked-away USB port so that your iPod isn't stolen? Cargo area is tiny and doesn't even come with a cover ($250 IF your dealer knows about it.) Does anyone at Nissan live in a big city with lurking car thieves? The digital dashboard data is so small it's difficult to read -- why does an automatic transmission need such a large tachometer? (Admittedly a problem with other cars, too.) Make it smaller so the other data can be read easily while driving. The radio and climate control knobs look cheap. All these issues wouldn't be a big deal but it's not an inexpensive car. If its looks were a bit more attractive, the back seats were bigger, and it actually achieved its stated mpg, the other quibbles would be less important. All together though, I can't recommend it.
