Dito, although the child in me chuckled @ the can't find the hole in the dark ;) I've put the rear window down faaar to often now, my trick is to feel the bump of the lock doors button ;)

Yeh, i feel the bump in the lock button as well. My only niggles are no heated mirrors, and cigarette lighter socket goes off when car is off. Bit useless if I want to charge my phone, unless I'm on the road!

Personally I don't have an issue with the window switch pack not being completely illuminated as the drivers window switch (front right) is lit upwith ignition on, so I use this asa reference for the other 3...

Ok 6 weeks in and my impressions
Love

Looks and styling - what a head turner.
High seating position
Reversing camera
Turbo power and 6 gears
Sat nav and blueetooth audio/phone
Climate control
Lighting -6 lights on the front

Niggles

Like others its finding the ignition key position and electric window switches in the dark
Audio volume on steering wheel -makes it dificult if your steering wheel isn't square on.
I am amazed how difficult I have found it in the snow although I accept how bad the snow has been. This tempts me to get the 4 wheel drive in a few years time

Summary

In the main absolutely love the car - great presence on the road , wonderful to drive. I have often paid in excess of £20000 for a car and had all sorts including Sports carsand Bmw's and ok although the quality of for example the interior doesnt match up to my former cars the whole driving experience is better. So in summary a great value for money car and the best I have owned. Love it.

I noticed that. Turning sharply round a corner and the phone rings - it takes a second or two to find the accept call button on the steering wheel.

Hmmm. Part of what makes me unperturbed at probably ordering the FWD/MT version is that I have found that all the electronic aids (traction control, brake force distribution, etc...) seemed to make my MINI almost as good as a four wheel drive, or at least similar in terms of preventing skidding and keeping one safe. I'm not suggesting that it's nearly as good as the Juke AWD, but in comparison with cars of old, I found that all these electronic compensatory mechanisms seem to be good enough to make me not care about AWD and its typical downsides (increased weight, lower fuel-economy).

As far as snow and ice, I don't think any car will give you a free pass to drive with abandon. You still have to use winter driving sense. In my mind, if the MINI was rather [surprisingly] good in snow (except for the horrible ground clearance), the Juke must be brilliant. Am I mistaken?

Fatter tyres and higher centre of gravity don't make snow driving that good.

Must admit I too have found driving this thing in the snow and ice a bit unpleasant. Thought it would be better quite honestly. I think if the weather doesnt improve I am going to ask my fleet company for winter tyres.Everything else is spot on. Smitten with my little car....So smitten that my children still arent allowed in it..

I thought the phone system is hands free and autoanswer would be an option along with voice command so you don't need to touch a button...

Love the style of my Juke, I smile every time I see it. Bluetooth phone seems brill. There is a lack of storage compartments tho, but I guess that'll stop me filling it up with junk. Petrol does seem to go down quick in sport mode but this is def the best mode to drive in.
