Can someone provide the money factor and residual value for a 39 month 12k/yr Juke lease?

That is why Nissan is the only one offering and saying 39 month leases are the best thing in the world, despite the fact the others do 36 months and their warranty is only for 36 months. Tell them this, and they just scratch their head. Plus, if you live in a state like me where you have to pay either 3 or 4 years of registration, etc if you do 39 months, you'll be paying for a car you won't even have for the other 9 months your registration and DMV fees are for.
Nissan seems to think they sell BMW's and Infiniti's for some reason. Whether you lease or finance.
#20 of 37 Juke needs an armrest

I just purchased a Juke SV with Auto Trans for my daughter. The color is Cayenne Red with a Black and Red Interior. She loves the car as do I but it could really use an armrest. I guess I will have to make one.
#21 of 37 Juke car wash
Apr 24, 2011 (7:06 am)
I've had a Juke for about 2 months. One odd problem. I go to the car wash, drive 1 mile home, put the car in the garage. Next time I put it in gear, the wheels don't want to move at first, then there's a loud snap and everything is back to normal. I thought something was getting frozen but it happened yesterday in 45 degree weather. I haven't asked my dealer ... as long as the car moves, I generally don't bother. Has anyone had this experience?

I purchased my Juke back in Dec 2012. With over 10k miles already, i have not manage to hit 33mpg,and thats with 90% of my driving is Highway with the ECO on. Its a great little car for 2 but the other down side is that it takes only Surpreme gas!! Which averages out to 25mpg

As you may know, most cars that say Premium work just fine on regular and it doesn't void your warranty or anything. In fact that manufacturers including Nissan have tidied up their wording so if you read the applicable notice carefully, it don't forbid Regular or even not advise it ... they just say it may effect performance. The Juke has plenty of performance on Regular especially in the Normal mode (vs Econ). I've noted no differance in MPG (Regular vs Premium). You'd be better off saving the dollars on the fill up and splurging on the Normal driving mode

I bought my Juke SL in April 2011. Very fun to drive! Turbo has lots of get up. The car is alot easier to get in and out of compared to the Altima. I am averaging 27.2 mpg. The GPS is great as is the on screen camera for reverse. I like the USB for my smart phone and hands free talking on my phone. I love my Juke and have gotten lots of compliments.
Recently I have noticed a rattle in the rear somewhere. I am unable to find it, unless it is the rear speaker. I have checked everything I know and am unable to find the origin of the rattle. This is, and should be a very tight little car. It is not the jack or tools in the back. Please reply to this post if anyone has any insight on this muffled rattle.

Have you checked the back seats to make sure they are locked in place? I realize this sounds obvious but had a rattle and could not find where it was coming from but eventually found this to be the problem.
Anyone else having trouble with the low tire indicator continually coming on regardless of air pressure in tires?

We noticed a rattle/clicking noise on the way home from picking up my Juke from the dealership. It only makes that noise when driving at least 50 mph or faster. After putting my head near the gear shifter, we figured out that was where the noise was coming from. My husband says that is where the catalytic converter is located. The dealship says the noise is normal after we told them about it over the phone. I think not. Other cars do not make that clicking/rattle noise. Other than that, I do LOVE my Juke!

I've found that at a number of "other sites" people are complaining about the license plate rattling.. This could be the issue.. thou I placed velcro on the Plate (not on the car body) to cushion the plate against the body.
Thou we are very pleased with the Juke.. I feel that there coil springs and / or shocks need to be upgraded.. They aren't as responsive as I would hope. Matter of fact I would rather have the Juke lifted approx 3/4 inch more.. Contacting Nissan and Nismo and a few other companies which create Polyurethane spacers. None have agreed to raise the Juke only lower it..
