Editor's Overview

If you're open-minded enough to venture onto the other side of the Nissan Juke's daringly different sheet metal, what you'll find is a fun little hatchback-wagon-crossover-thing with a turbocharged engine and an available torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system.

Love my 2012 Nissan Juke!

This is the fifth car I have owned in 15 years and is by far the best. My Juke has given me no trouble whatsoever. Besides routine maintenance, I have had no trouble with it. It is very fun to drive and handles all kinds weather and road conditions. My one and only complaint is has very little storage or cargo area. I am able to cram three kids in the backseat including one infant car seat, a convertible car seat, and booster seat. If the cargo area was bigger, I'd give the Juke 5 stars! It will be a sad day when I trade it in for a minivan.

Sporty Nissan juke, fast little car.

The Nissan juke is a great car. I love the speed and absolutely love the look. I have a sunroof as well so I recommend that if purchasing. It is a great car for someone without a family or someone with a small family as there is not great leg room in the back. If weather is an issue I would also recommend the AWD model as juke's tend to sit low to the ground as I have not had too many experiences getting stuck in the snow with my juke.

Good mileage, 33 mpg on the highway when I use the "eco" setting.

I love that I can use "eco" "normal" or "turbo" settings to either conserve fuel, or bump up my power. I wish the gas tank were larger. I get good mileage but seem to have to fill up a lot. I am 5'4" and this vehicle is the perfect height. I can slide in and out without having to step up or down to get in and out. My 135 lb. Dog can also fit nicely in the back.
