I'm thinking of getting a Juke, but I have a question 1st.
I know the Juke has 60/40 rear seat folding option. Is it possible to fit 2 kids (11 & 8) if I folded the /40 bit down?
What I mean would the 2 seat belts still work for them? the reason I need this is probably a one off, for cases for travelling to an airport (3hr journey), would it be ok to do this.
I had a quick look at a dealers today to look at the boot. It looks real small really, sloped so a problem I think if you stack cases on for example. I did notice a plastic insert under the cover, I could take this out and leave it at home for extra space? but at a push may need the /40 option.
Anyone confirm this for me pleasethanks

im thinking take out the plastic insert to fit cases in vertical - hope it works as mine are 8 & 5 you should still be able to use 2 seat belts with the 40 bit folded down it would be a bit silly if you couldnt imo

Do you use car seats with these? if so what type? Just remembered about those, surely there wont be space for 2 child seats with the /40 folded down? Or do you use booster seats that are ok? At the moment the youngest still sits in a car seat with back, although, I thik he should be ok for a booster seat now only?


True, just different cars, have different means of seat belt, seat arrangement was wondering on Juke. I'm hoping that taking out the insert then I can fit them in to, but when I looked today, the insert is a smaller hole so unsure. As I said the boot although looks decent size, because for the shape of the car, the slope is steep so anything, eg case, would not fit standing up I suspect

I've done that with my Toyota Yaris Verso, with no problems (put eldest kid on the 'loose' side).
You mean in the middle sort of speak not the window seat?

My question is: How often are you going to be going to the airport? If like me you go to the airport maybe twice a year then do what I do and get aTaxi. Don't let something small get in the way of buying a fantastic car. Just my point of view.

My suggestion would be to totally remove the boot cover (hinged floor bit) -

and remove the plastic tray inside also that would make the boot a helluva lot deeper and all you really need is the tyre GUNK etc that is there already.

That way you would have a lot of space and might not need to put the kids in a trailer on the roof rack!

Yeh when I had a look in the dealers that looked best option, I'm not sure what else should be in the plastic tray, and there wasn't anything in it at dealers. I believe there is no spare tyre, just a can of tyre stuff to get you to a garage.
I notice that it states your an Ex-Juke owner now, can I ask why? you not happy with car? why?
cheers

Yes you can still fit two kids in with the 40 folded. The seat belts still click into place. I don't have a spare with mine - just an inflation kit...so taking the plastic tray out would definitely give you a stack more depth...
I'm sure Fee will go into more detail about why and wherefores, but essentially not happy with MPG of the DCi..I've got a DIG-T, so I'm fairly confident that MPG is going to be pretty pants...but love the car!!!

Fee's right..if you remove all the boot floor bits and leave the tyre or gunk for punctures..you'll have a very deep boot with ample room for cases.
