Cars.com Reviews the 2011 Nissan Juke

2011 Nissan Juke

The Nissan Juke is an odd piece of work from an automaker that has already shown its eccentric side vis-à-vis the Cube and the Murano CrossCabriolet. The subcompact SUV is definitely fun to drive and affordable, according to Cars.com editor Kelsey Mays. But it has some pretty significant shortcomings, including an unusable backseat and an uncomfortably stiff ride. Perhaps the Juke’s polarizing looks can work in its favor, but that didn’t work for the poor-selling Cube.

IMHO, I think that Nissan is targeting is new batch of vehicles toward the "i___" early 20's generation. It may take several years to catch on, but the i___ e20's generation likes to be unique - at least that's how it seems to me. Kinda like what Scions did 5-6 yr ago to Gen Y.

If it's not due to the ongoing worldwide economic crisis (unemployment for the young adults), these type of vehicles may had grabbed a larger share of markets.

Terrible headlights.
CVT and NO balance shafts?!?

Do you need balance shafts on a 1.6L engine? I thought that only larger four cylinder engines needed them.

Not everyone hates the CVT.

In the US - Small cars are bad enough, but to make them small and funky (Cube, Juke), well, it's just not going to appeal to many buyers. I think most young people want cool looking cars (new or used) for cheap. Which kid wants something that's aimed that them only, anyway? I've only seen the Juke once on the road, and I live in a major metropolitan city.

The car already seems an extra different from exteriors. Expecting more pics of the interiors you are talking about.
