Woke up one morning and found this on my drive.









Pre production Nissan juke 1.6 turbo. This is the car that was/is to be featured in car magazine. Also appered at a few shows and promo shoots.



Should have it for the next 6 months on and off before it's scrapped.



More pictures and stuff laterEdited by: The-juke

Yeah scrapped it can't be sold as it's pre production and to be honest it been hammered since day one it doesn't sound to good at the minute. It's did nearly 600 mile on the test track.

I think one of the reasons these Jukes are not being used for test drives at the dealer preview events, is because they are pre-production vehicles only.

Some peopleclaim theyhave had a test drive at a preview somehow (who said bribe?
)
but as pre-production cars things like the roof lining, centre console etc etc are bound to come loose.

Some Juke buyers inJapan are complaining about the harsh ride in their Jukes.How are you finding yours - do you need the services of a masseur/chiropractor after a while?

(Extra cushioning seems to be the DIY answer in Japan)

the ride is harsh. However i was up at otterburn at the weekend i can see why. The steering is very light and if you get it in the wrong gear you get horrible turbo lag however its all good once you understand how it drives and you learn how to use the new turbo engine. You can feel the back end stick and hunker down when taking corners fast which is nice. If anyone is interested im currently getting 27mpg in sport mode. The car has been tracked and abused since day one as well.

bit of an awkward decision for us ,the cars for my wife and she only does short trips to work so the diesels are out due to dpf's on them but she dont need a turbo so the 1.6 standard would be my choice for her

The 1.6 non turbo is a great engine. I've had micra, notes and kumquats with it in and they were all good....the micra 160sr was the best though.

the turbo is a nuts engine. Its designed as a replacement for the old SR20DET. It should see its way into a few cars over the next couple of years....hopefully the next S16 Silvia/200sx

Hiya

I am well jealous

What was your neighbours reaction to the Juke sitting in your drive???

Have you driven a 1.5 DCi??

Its tragic to scrap it but like any demonstrator people dont take care of it and rev the guts out of it. Pity though, its lovely!!!

I willhave a similardilemma I think in that I bought a Qashqai because 'Er Indoors will drive it, even though it's mine. She refused to drivethe Audi I had previously. Whilst a change to a Juke (1.6 turbo -woo hoo!)will bemy decision mainly, I could be stymied of she decided she won'tdrive it. She currently has a Micra (her second) but likes the high driving position of the QQand really hates it when rear visibility is not so good.

One thing that I should have asked

I have never had privacy glass before ... Can anyone tell me if visibility is SERIOUSLY compromised at night time or when reversing??

Perhaps should have thought about that before ordering...#

Yeah I had privacy on my last and the factory fitted options are a lot better than the boy racer type halfords sell!

You getting many looks or questions about it when driving then?
