2011 Nissan Juke Acenta 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Should be called the Nissan Joke - it is rubbish
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.
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

On reading these pages, it seems that Nissan build and reliability is not as good as in the days before they were owned by Renault? Just an observation...

Nissan were good back in the day, like many manufacturers. I've had a few Renaults before and they have been OK contrary to most reviews saying they are unreliable, so I'm not sure if the Renault-Nissan merger was to blame or something else like cars getting too complex in general in recent years.
