    My car

    I have owned a 1.6 16v Acenta Premium 5dr Auto (for the last 3 years from new (2012) and here is my experience;

    Pros;

    - IT HANDLES LONDON SPEED BUMPS REALLY WELL!!!!!!

    - Stunning, modern and cutting edge looks (my opinion) - Interior is nice (if you have right colour combo) - Impressive amount of kit as standard - (Reverse Cam - touchscreen SATNAV inc traffic master, bluetooth audio, AC etc) - High driving position - Easy to park - Reliability - not one problem in 3 years of ownership - Cheap to insure - Awesome value for money - £16k brand new!!! - Cool little touches like a buttons that change function with different screens (actual symbols on the buttons)

    Cons;

    - Very noisy when accelerating hard (due to rubbish CVT box) - Slow acceleration, need to press sports mode a lot - Ride quality awful, can feel every small bump on the road (could be due to alloys, but I doubt it) - Seems to fidget on a smooth road too - Seats not good for long distance - Cost cutting in surprising places - no rear interior light / glove box light, cheap car speakers etc - Fuel economy poor - currently getting 29mpg

    Conclusion;

    If you’re looking for a car that is different/modern/funky styled, great value for money, reliable and you live in a city cursed by speed bumps (and don’t care much about performance) then this is perfect!!

    Whilst I have enjoyed owning the Juke for the last 3 years, the performance and ride quality means I won’t be looking at another

    My car

    Why the 2 star review?

    Ive driven the Juke Tekna 1.5 Diesel for around 3 months and I have to say it's a fine car to drive. The first thing I like about this car is the engine noise is a big improvement over my old car (Vauxhall Agila 1.2) theres hardly any when your going down the A1 like I do every morning at 70. The Juke Tekna has a lot of decent equipment as one would expect for this model. It has a pretty good Satnav and Bluetooth system for your phone and a very good stereo that I can connect my iPod directly to.

    On the inside it is let down slightly. The plastics on the inside are a little cheap feeling and the drivers seat is not the most comfortable for reaching the clutch and accelerator. However it heats up nicely with very good climate control and heated seats. The boot space is also a big let down i.e its virtually non existent. I can however just about fit my camera equipment in there.

    In terms of fuel economy and reliability I've gotten pretty decent mileage sometimes averaging around 40-50 MPG depending on my drive mode and how I drive generally. I can usually get away with filling a near empty tank for £47. Being a Nissan its had very good reliability and no problems yet and being Nissan it is built to last.

    Verdict-Little pricey but worth it

    My car

    We have owned Our Acenta Premium 1.5 DCI since Jan 2011. My Main car is actually an Insignia snd I feel that the Juke out drives the Insignia. All the reviews seem to suggest that the deisel is sluggish at low revs. I strongly disagree with this. Its very quick off the mark and certainly seems quicker that my Vauxhall. The road holding is also second to none. Flies around roundabouts as oif its on rails. Sound system is good, it has bluetooth for hands free calling and it works well with an iphone. The cabin is also comfortable and practical. Plenty of room for 4 adults and only the rear doors are a little small if that is a criticism. The servicing is cheap enough although at 12000 miles it could be a little longer between services. MPG is averaging around 50mpg with the wife driving and 46mpg with me ( Heavy right foot) The boot is small but fold down the rear seats and there is plenty.. Overall its a very nice car and we are looking to get another one soon.

    My car

    I have the acenta premium 1.6 petrol, it is not a 2 star rating car, more of a 4 star rating, the level of tech you get is very high for your money compared with more expensive makes. I previosly had a suzuki swift and the differance is huge in the whole driving expierance, along with the comfort of the juke it is a pleasure to drive on long journeys, i get 45 mpg on a long run and 41 mpg on local runs which is about 6-8 mpg less than quoted which is not to bad, overall it is a cracking car and i will be buying another next year with the new 1.2 engine with turbo.
