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..

I found that the rattle IS the back seat latch, even though it IS latched. When I lay the back seat down, (forward), I do not hear the rattle. It only rattles when turning curves at a slow speed. I plan to pad the latch with something like small bubble wrap. There is no way I can reproduce this rattle when the car is parked and I shake the back seat.
My BF has an Altima and the low tire indicator comes on, and off, frequently.

I've had my new Juke for about a month now. when we ordered it, my husband added a few extras for me like the lighting package... it is SO COOL! When my daughter saw it, she said 'Mom, it's just like a Juke Box!' If you can afford it, and want something a little different, get the lighting package. It changes colors! The only thing we really didn't care for is where they put the knob so you might want to discuss that with the dealership. We also got the lighted Juke kick plate, which is neat too.
#30 of 37 2011 Vs 2012 Juke Vs 2012 Impreza

Wondering if i should buy one of few remaining 2011 Juke out in dealership now or wait for 2012 Juke to come out so that i can compare against
2012 Impreza Premium 5-Door with CVT auto transmission
What i like 2012 Imperza is its promised 36 MPG on highway and also little more leg space in back seat.
Juke 2011 back seat has very little space. anyone has any idea if they have increase the size in 2012 ? have they added armrest for driver in 2012 ?

I had to answer your post, because the design on this Juke is a JOKE!
What idiot design engineer could come up with such a design? I have seen a few individuals booting this thin around in the snow. They must think they have some high performance vehicle; however, they quickly ducked as the car started sliding on the ice and snow.
When I first saw the car at the Nissan dealership I thought that it was a poor design, cheaply made, and suitable for a kindergaarten mind.
So I was very amused to read that your 4 year old likes the brochure.
It confirms what I thought.

Look at the design and quality of the Juke, - who would buy such a thing ?
Did someone actually design such an ugly thing? What is it, - ma cross between a jungle vehicle and some mtoy spaceship four 5 year old?
Upon inspection of the interior of the vehicle, - poor quality was also observed.
