I am picking up my Juke 1.6 DiG-T 4WD CVT-M6 next Monday, I am REALLY excited. We are getting it from Westway Nissan at the Oxford Motor Park, they have been really good so far, including giving us a great trade in on our two year old Qashqai! We also have a Nissan Note 1.5 dCi Tekna, we are bid fans of Nissan, especially the standard equipment. We like "quirky" cars, having had a Ford Ka,nineSmart fortwo's and two Smart Roadsters over the Years (my sister-in-law works for Mercedes, so got a great lease deal. I'll post back on the (hopefully stress-free) collection on the 22nd. I am looking forward to contributing to the forum, as I did on the smartclub forum for all of those years.

It's Gun Metal grey, I think we've been really lucky in securing such a quick delivery, but then again, it isn't here yet! We went for 4WD so my wife could feel safer driving to work on some pretty appalling B roads (I wanted it because of the tech and the BHP!). We had to test the CVT gearbox first as neither of us have had any experience of them, we weresurprised that it also had a 6 speed "tiptronic-esque" setting. I can't wait to pick it up, and will post photos and feedback of my esperience. Thanks for the welcome guys!

Will do Milos, fuel economy is the only uncertainty I have, I am sure it will be low when we first pick it up! But then, we get 63 mpg out of the Note, so if we average both cars...........

Welcome. Pretty sure as deks says you'll be there first in the UK on this forum to get the 4x4. Will be interested in your thoughts. The CVT box put me off to be honest

Sallyspud, we ordered it on Saturday 6th November after a test drive, so delivery on the 22nd is very good judging by the other posts on the forum. The dealer said they had had to cancel a launch event so they had access to a number of the 4WD ones in limited colours. Will definately be posting my amateur review of it!

Chris, thanks for the welcome. We had similar concerns over the CVT, but it seems to be flexible enough, what with 6 selectable gears too. You can also switch between 2wd, 4wd (50/50 split) and 4wd Torque Vectoring, althought the salesman said that 4wd torque-vectoring would cover all eventualities, switching it to 2wd wouldn't have any economy savings. The 50/50 split might be useful in sticky situations, but I promised the wife I wouldn't try and take it off-road

Cheers Sallyspud, everyone is really friendly on this forum, not like SOME of the ones I've posted to in the past! I will post a review in the style of James May (or possibly the Stig)!
