A bizarre question, but I made the mistake of looking in the faults forum first!It seems that quite a few have faults, certainly more so than the other forums I looked at before purchasing previous cars (Subara Impreza and Focus ST).Do the majority of you have a Juke fault free existence? I'm looking at a Juke Acenta Premium Dig-T.Thanks,Steve

no problems here.Runs great.LOOKS GREATNo regrets at all.
Buddy believe me ALL CARS HAVE PROBLEMS.I Work with what you would call the Premier cars £70,000 to £120,000 and yes they have problems too.
However what i have found in this forum is that the community in here are being very honest which is only a good thing for new customers and NISSAN. And share theirexperiencesopenly.
I know some would block / delete / Hide the issues because they think it harms the sales,
Go for it - its a cracking car !

Hi boxst,
Had mine for almost three months. I do have a very slight paint problem which, would not have been seen had it not been for the thread on here (it is that small). Other than that it is great. Love driving it andlove the looks it gets from other road users. Don't be put off by what has been said here, I've had other cars recalled after they had been in production for over five years.
Go for it.


Lj2.

The problem is people are more inclined to post or search IF they have a problem ... There will be many thousands of Juke owners out there with no issues at all..Not everyone searches for info.I would definitely buy another Juke - without question - if they, IMO, improved urban MPG mileage OR made an improved 6 speed petrol (non turbo)Fabulous styling and unique -- more positive than negative!!!Fee x

Had our Juke 8 months (how time flies when you're having fun) and No problems at all, except the very minor paint rub on front bumper - Nissan dealing with. It's a great car that is a joy to drive, We will certainly be getting another Juke once General Lee's 3rd birthday comes around

Steve, welcome to the forum! Glad you've found us.

Funnily enough my exact model of Juke is the Acenta Premium Dig-T. I picked mine up March 1st and have done 3.5k miles in it. I'm averaging around the 38mpg mark, mainly due to the type of roads I drive and my slightly heavy right foot. Overall I am extremely happy with the Juke, coming from a 2010 Toyota Yaris 1.33, the Juke feels like a decent upgrade.

The 0-62 sprint takes 8 seconds, which being an ST & Scooby fan I'm sure you've already checked. Not exactly in keeping with the ST & Scooby, however it certainly keeps up with all the traffic and I would consider it a "hot hatch". Getting to 62 feels much quicker than 8 seconds, and having driven a RS Clio 200 (0-62 in 6.9) it doesn't feel any slower. The turbo is a blast!

The spec with the Acenta Premium is generous, as are all the trims. With Acenta Premium you'll enjoy in built sat nav, reversing camera, rear tinted privacy glass and 17" alloys (amongst other things).

All in all I rate the Juke 8.5/10, only lacking in the MPG department which will hopefully improve as the engine gets more worn in.
