That happened with Honda Civic Hybrid owners. A software update hammered the mpg.

This is really bothering me.. Knowing that the Nissan dealer re-flashed the chip and our milage went down hill. This isn't the only time this has happen to us. Two other vehicles had the same type of issues after: re-flashing or getting plugged in by emission testers. I'm very tempted to go out and disconnect the battery for e few days just to see if the computer would reset. ( I knew I should have told them not to flash the Juke)
A glimmer of hope on our Juke's horizon.. is that I've just started a page devoted to the possible 10th anniversary of the juke.. Yeah I know thinking way ahead.. But I've already gain support from Steve bower via Husky liners..

I got my Juke Mar 31 2012 I drive 98.2 miles a day its AWD S no EGO settings I drive in in 2WD
I love the car HATE the MPG I drive 70 with cruise on some hills on the way I get 20.3 with PREM Gas almost all the time. So I try Reg gas and got 21.4 this over one week of driving and filling up.

I bought my Juke in October 2011 and got a great deal for an SL. Car has been great with no problems minus the recall. I keep seeing everyone gripe about mpg, you bought a turbocharged car! You need to be using non ethanol 93 grade. In the event I cannot get ethanol free I still use 93. The turbo is there to pick up what a1.6 liter does not have, good take off and pickup on passing. I love the car as they built it and look forward to driving it everyday. I have even have several people I work with considering buying one. Am always happy to toss them my key to take for a spin. This is an urban cross under, made to be fun and different. I cannot help but notice how all other cars look alike but the Juke definitely stands out!
