Nice small family car
I like my Juke, i only ever use the eco friendly setting as it saves fuel. I only ever use premium fuel and the most i have paid is $60 to fill. I haven't had any issues to date appart from having to remove the boot floor to fit my pram.
Great car to start with however no good as a family car and trying to get a baby in and out of the back is a no go plus when you can not fit a pram and your shopping in the back.
I have had issues with a gasic coming loose at the turbo intake and clutch is super warm after 2 yrs of driving. Also while using bluetooth people where unable to hear me over the notice of the car even the updated downloaded and the stereo was very low
Great car to drive when in the car yourself heaps to run
Not so practical for a baby/toddler
I love my Juke but it’s not the best as a family car
Not as good as I thought.
I was one of first to buy one, handles really well in sport mode, not so much in economy. Good fuel economy. Didn't have to spend much on mechanical running costs at all until I got to 120k. Now all of a sudden things are going wrong. At 3 years old I had to have the front and rear crank case gaskets replaced at a cost of over $2,500 and now 1 year later the air con condenser has blown up that is going to cost another $1000. And of course conveniently warranty has run out. Cannot wait to get rid of this thing. Things like this should not be happening to car that is 4 years old.
Handles well quite comfortable. The look is distinctive, and the price is good. I like the juke and i don't care abut cars at all. Its runs well and i do a lot of driving. The interior is quality, has different driving setting, eco normal and sport. there is a definite difference with these sport is more more responsive and eco saves you money on the free way.
Want a nice comfortable inexpensive car,. Have a look
Purchased in December 2021.
Average car for the money.
I have a Black Juke ST manual - purchased brand new from Von Bibra in 2014. As I found out later though - my "new car" was a 2013 model.
I was attracted to the juke for its unique design. I love the look of the car - and for a single person, it's quite convenient with it's size. It has a good boot for a little car - and when the seats are laid down in the back - it has a surprising amount of storage. I had a towball fitted, so that I could put my bike on the back - however I discovered that I could actually fit my (road) bicycle in the back wi...
Very good car. Have not got any problem with it. Good quality.
The driving experience with the car is enjoyable.
Some tiny issues with the GPS navigation as sometimes it says route calculation failed. Apart from that, overall, it is a good quality car.
The running cost is OK. Currently the petrol consumption per 100km is around 8.3 and the service fee is around $300.
Great car but gps cannot be updated on 2013 - 2015 models
Great, sporty car but really don,t appreciate having to stick a $100 tom tom on the dash. I think that when you pay quite a few extra dollars for this type of system then the manufacturer should have one that could be updated. Have replied to quite a few Nissan surveys highlighting this design fault but have yet to receive a response.s
January 5th 2018 Update: Don't top up the radiator
Should you need to top up the radiator only use water. I topped mine up using a radiator inhibitor, when I had my next service I was told what I had done was incorrect and an inhibitor contaminates the cooling system. I was charged over $300 to have the system flushed. Wouldn’t, have bothered but the vehicle is still under warranty.
Great little car
Love the interior. Got white with red accents and love ever aspect of it. I'm 6 foot and can sit comfortably in the back seat. All the fine details make this car fantastic. Display very user friendly. Only downside so far is the reversing camera which can be a little hard to judge. Overall would recommend this car to anyone.
Never buy a Nissan juke
Biggest mistake to buy a Nissan Juke!! Brought this BRAND NEW car in October 2015 from Bayside Automotive and have had issues from day one.
First: After a week of having the car the Engine light came on. Took the car into Nissan which they keep my car for a few days to fix the issues which was a faulty Fuse
Car broke down RACV had to come out battery was loose as Nissan didn’t tighten properly after having it
Second: Took the car in as the car radio was very faulty and the buttons on the steering wheel and control panel didn't work. I was to...
Love! But a couple niggly problems
After doing ALOT of research, I chose this model as it fast quick off the mark without having the 'bulk' of a regular SUV.
A lovely smooth drive with the option to change driving modes (Eco, normal & sports)
Lots of room inside, a large male can easily sit in the back seat without having his knees up near his ears!
The leather seats are lovely to look at but uncomfortable during long drives.
As I’ve now had the Juke for a couple of year, a few pieces of plastic moulding have begun to fall off.
Purchased in August 2021.
I'm in Lurve...with my new Nissan Juke
awesome to drive, parking in tight spots is amazing. Looks small and sporty but inside is soooo roomy. Very low road noise which is great too. Greg at Nissan Browns Plains made my purchase easy, fun and most importantly quick. Loving the gadgets and boot space. Thanks Greg you're amazing!!
Juke Ti-s way to go
Just bought one today - got the Ti-s - tried the st - very under power. Came form 4L ford and found st very lacking.Tied the Ti-s Turbo and loved it . it is well worth spending the extra for the turbo. I would say the st would have troubles getting up hills.If you had a 6 cylinder before the st would not be for you . Try the Turbo you will love it. Extra colours are way to expensive - going to wait for e-bay for aftermarket ones. Love the shape.
My favourite car ever
Love this car. It's very individual, sporty and as the ads say it is fun. It drives really well, the ride is high, and visibility is great. It looks like a 2 door but it's actually a 4 door.
Minor issue is I have the Digi Turbo top of the range model and storage is an issue.
The base model has under floor storage in the back / cargo area. I'd also like a little more storage in the front, the two cup holders are a good size, but one (if not both) end up being filled with my phone and water then there's no room for the coffee! I wouldn't...
One of my best purchases - Ever...
I adore my Juke.
Quirky, sporty, zippy, fun and always interesting.
I have had it over a year and still love pushing all the buttons !
Nissan have been brilliant for servicing and follow up, they know customer service very well.
Easy to drive, smooth and quiet - yet when you touch the accelerator it doesn't ask why, she just moves. I dont regret the purchase and would recommend the vehicle to anyone interested.
I love driving down the street and people looking curiously at her with the question on their face 'what is that?'.
the moon buggy is a breath of fresh air
I bought my wife a moon buggy/Nissan juke, and she absolutely loves it, apparently its not the best small car but to us it is unique, it handles like a go cart and is loaded with all the things that are needed these days, good Bluetooth, cruise control, a very good basic stereo to name a few, as a bonus it is styled like no other car, being a tall car it is easy to get in and out of, it looks like a two door but it's a four, it's only about a foot longer than my wife's previous car a Toyota yaris so parking at shopping centres are a no brainer..., you can get a turbo version if that's your bent but for us it's it's the standard model in auto, our moon buggy is awesome to drive, kudos to Nissan for having the guts to make this car the others are now playing catch up, I honestly cannot speak highly enough of this car, it's bloody fantastic, long live the moon buggy.
Questions & Answers
We are due to have a baby next month and whilst i was looking to replace my Juke with a larger suv, Skoda have pulled my order from the production line unexpectedly!!!
So... we are now needing advice for a car seat that will fit! And maybe a pram that will fold up small enough for the boot!!
Any thoughts or tips are greatly appreciated!!!!
Hey! Congrats and sorry about Skoda pulling your order!
With a capsule in the back, the passenger seat had to be really far forward. My hubby couldn’t fit his legs in the passenger seat with the capsule (bonus because he always drove but you’ll be pretty squashed)!
I had an iCandy pram, which would fit if I took the wheels off. We ended upgrading to a city select and that fit better because it could stand upright (still with wheels off). But don’t expect to fit anything else in the boot with the pram there!
We made it work for 3 years but had to upgrade when we had another child. It was uncomfortable but I’m sure you’ll make it work somehow.
All the best!
Hi I am looking at buying a 2016 Nissan Juke Ti-S N sport model. There's no safety rating. would like to get some feed back from someone who's got it? Vas
Hi Vas, answering your question on Nissan Jukes. I purchased a 2013, ex demo with 100k's on the clock in 2015. Cost about $34k new, cost me $26k. Maybe you should think of a demo model. The one I have is a TS-I and it exceeds all my expectations. I feel very comfortable (seats are great) and most secure. It goes like a bat out of hell and can stop on a sixpence. Turning circle good, body build good, consumption good, Hey everything is good.
I'm thinking of buying a 2014/2015 Nissan Juke 2nd hand. It has the base 1.6 l motor and no turbo. Anyone got one? Is there enough power for a good day to day car and the odd trip up the coast? I would be interested in any feedback. Thanks.
Would definitely suggest you buy, however I have the turbo model and it's really very good. Be careful with any radiator top up. I did this using a recognised fluid . The dealer said this was a no no. As it was some kind of magic liquid that had to be used. (Must have had gold dust in it). I was charged $300 to flush and recharge the system.
