#5 of 13 Price and MPG
Jun 13, 2011 (10:45 am)
I am thinking about buying a Juke SL, FWD. The sticker price of the one I want is $27,080. From what I can tell by reseaching the Internet that is "at least" $2,000 to0 high. Can anyone help me out on a fair price? Also I keep hearing that the MPG qouted is way off from what you can actually get. What can I honeatly expect and can regular gas be used as I have read on this forum? Any help/information would be "greatly" appreciated!!

On march 18th 2011 8:45 pm est we drove off the Koon's Nissan Lot with our new Nissan Juke.. However, we got to the dealership at 4:30 pm est.. every time.. and we even called in advanced.. "Don't toy with us" we said.. they claimed they ah all the paper work done and all we had to do was sign it and drive off.. The Juke it's self was very surprising and still is. very fun to drive and corners on a dime. Thou more then we wanted to pay for it.. and my wife was a bit upset at the dealer for lied about the interior color.. (she wanted the black/red) but got the black/silver instead.. Knowing that we drove 3 hours to get there and waited.. and waited.. really ticked us off.. I was inches from heading out the door.. when the deal was done. Furthermore.. They had even lost our temp plates and real plates.. So it would seem that every dealership is just like this.. claiming one thing and pussy footing around.. they always have an always will.
#7 of 13 Took the train to get my Juke

We took the train from Lincoln NE to Burlington IA so we would just have one car to drive back. They didn't have any SL's in Lincoln. We knew what we wanted, added a few extras like the cargo cover which they installed upside down but my husband figured it out, the upgraded rear view mirror, the LIGHTING PACKAGE which is REALLY cool!! and the lighted kick plate. I still hear the ticking noise when we drive over 55 mph which we distinctly hear under the gear shift. I know we need to take it in but I don't want to give up my Juke just yet... If you're buying a Juke for a daughter, get the lighting package, it changes colors! She'll love it!

#10 of 13 2012 Nissan Juke SL Price Paid
Apr 16, 2012 (12:05 pm)
I am planning to buy a 2012 Nissan Juke SL and would like to know how much do people pay for the car around the country?

For us?.. to much.. We were sucker punched into buying the Nissan Juke S model.. Although it has been fun to drive.. there has been twice my wife and I have wanted to get rid of it.. the past three recalls and poor gas milage have depressed our view on this small car.
Although I can't give you what we paid.. but the average is around 420.00 a month.. but here is a word of warning.. while we were looking at the Juke, the dealer (which will remain nameless) took our trade for a test drive, then removed the tags and lost them. clearly this was an attempt to keep us at the dealership. If it wasn't for the fact that the dealer took our tags off.. I would have walked away from the car..
Time is growing short.. and the Juke is leaning slightly to the Lemon side.. at least ours is.. If these three recalls aren't corrected soon.. you may see a big sticker on the Juke that reads "Lemon"
Note: Anyone reading this or any one with advice on what actions we should take in handling any recalls.. done that been there.. and no help.. and still waiting on parts.. Apparently Nissan has informed our dealer that "Replacement Parts For Your Juke Are On Hold"

What are the recalls for? Do they impact safety in a way that applies to you?
I've had cars with recalls before and it didn't bother me. Normally you drop the car off, the repairs are made, and the issue is settled. On my wife's car there was a recall that impacted safety; in that case the manufacturer reimbursed the dealer for providing us a loaner/rental for about a week while the car was down (it, too, faced a delay while waiting for parts).
Personally, if the dealer lost the plates on my trade I'd tell them they have 10 minutes to find them. Then I'd pull out my cell & call the police to report them as stolen. They have no business removing the plates until the car is no longer yours.
Finally, I would out the dealer both in this thread and in Edmunds dealer ratings area at http://www.edmunds.com/dealer-reviews/. Tactics like theirs are why the auto sales industry has such a bad reputation. Only by calling them out for it will we bring change.

Addressing the Recall Notices:
First of all..
After 1 month and 2 weeks of waiting, I was beginning to worry so I emailed Nissan (the 4th time) and asked them to contact our dealer and find out why our parts are taking so long to arrive.. Just got their response moments ago..
Thank you for taking the time to contact Nissan North America, Inc. regarding you vehicle and apologize for any incovenience this situation may have caused you.
We contacted the (Dealer Name Hidden) and were informed by the Service Department that the parts for the two recalls arrived at the dealer just yesterday. A service advisor from the dealership will be in contact with you.
Thank you for taking the time to write.

Funny how when you use the word "lemon" in your emails.. Nissan must have finally read my complain and jumped to attention..
In less then two minutes after posting this on my blog.. I get a call from the dealer.. letting me know the parts came in and they've scheduled a monday appoint for me.. Mind you this is not the above mentioned dealer.. We're not driving 4 hours to that dealer ever again.
Addressing the Actually Recall Notices:
I believe at the time it was three recalls..
1) Turbo Air Intake Tube (scheduled Monday service)
2) Fuel Pressure Sensor (scheduled Monday service)
3) Chip Reflash (completed)
..and possibly a forth recall notices.. Something to do with the door seals/hinges/windows letting water to enter the windows hardware and in cold weather climates.. these would freeze and you couldn't get into the car.
