2012 Nissan Juke Tekna 1.6 DIG-T

Summary:

Makes me smile everytime I drive it

Faults:

Tear in the front driver's seat; that's it.

General Comments:

Fantastic car. Love it. It makes me smile every time I drive it.

I have the 1.6 DIG-T 190 Tekna engine. It is quick and it will hit 60 mph in 7.5 secs and prefers Super Unleaded. The engine is smooth and can shock a lot of BMW drivers and boy racers. It will cruise at 70 MPH at 2,900 RPM in 6th.

The handling is the only letdown, as I find it can't cope with the engine as well as it should be able to.

Overall I will give this car 8.5/10

I have ordered the new Juke in 1.6 DIG-T Tekna again.

2011 Nissan Juke Acenta 1.6 petrol

Summary:

Should be called the Nissan Joke - it is rubbish

Faults:

Air-conditioning malfunctioned at less than 3,000 miles, and stopped working completely at just over 4,000.

CD player broke at just over 5,000 miles.

Rear passenger door lock developed a fault and became difficult to use at less than 7,000 miles.

Seats were starting to wear by 10,000 miles.

Clutch wore out and needed replacement at barely 12,000 miles.

General Comments:

Unreliable.

Disappointing build quality.

Horrible to drive.

Should be called the Nissan Joke.

Why it is now one of the most popular 10 or so cars in Britain is beyond me.

Nissans have changed beyond recognition in the last 5 years, and for all the wrong reasons.

They used to be known for reliability, but I owned 3 Peugeot's previously and they were all far better.

After 16 months and 14,000 miles, enough was enough and I traded it in for a new Ford Focus.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
