Get this car if you want a stylish sporty vehicle that gets good gas mileage and is a fun drive!

2012 Nissan JUKE

The juke is an amazing car. It is perfect for city driving and provides a smooth easy drive. I was interested in the car at first by it's unique style. The seats are comfortable and the gas mileage is superb. I like "juking" in and out of traffic but not in a dangerous reckless way. I have 2 dogs and they fit just great in the back. I would not recommend this car for large families as the backseat legroom is not the largest. The trunk space is adequate for normal living standards but I am looking at a larger vehicle for camping and road trips. I have not had any major issues with the car other than some recalls which were fixed for free by Nissan. I would have preferred it to have a center console for arm rests but you get used to the racing seats. It does provide an eco and sport mode but I rarely use those features. The usb input is very nice as it charges and also plays music through the car. I love the steering wheels grip and shape. There is also a nice hidden compartment in the trunk that holds car items that could be needed but are out of the way.

2012 Manual Nissan Juke Review

2012 Nissan JUKE SV

The main problem I have had with this car is the clutch. I had to replace the clutch and the flywheel after about a year in a half of having the car. This was due to letting someone else drive the car that did not know how to properly change gears. So this was obviously on me, but about five years later the clutch went out yet again. This time the symptoms were completely different. The car started sounding like the turbo was going out and would slowly accelerate when the gas was pressed. Once we replaced the clutch it worked like new, but we did replace it with a dual clutch instead of the factory built. I have very much enjoyed this car other than the clutch issues. It has been a great car for traveling with my dogs and when it's come time to move; I was able to fit quite a bit in the vehicle. The seats are extremely comfortable and durable as well.

The car is built with nearly no blind spots!

2012 Nissan JUKE

The Nissan juke is the most reliable car you could choose as maybe a first car owner or someone who likes to travel. I haven't had very many problems with my car, the only thing I have had issues with was my key fob batteries do not last very long. The mileage on my car is great, I travel a lot for sports and even with that I only fill up once every other week. This car also has a lot of space with the hatchback, the back row of seats fold down and give you even more room. Along with that, there’s a storage compartment in the trunk that lifts up; I keep a generator back here in case of any emergencies.
