Default Tell me about your Juke

Looking for a daily driver so the Z can stay home in the garage.

The wife and I are starting to like the Juke. If you have one, please tell me what you like and don't like about it.

We just need a decent, fun around town runabout, that when the back seats are folded down, can haul luggage for two people.

Thanks!

1. Destroyed a brand new tire, knocked the front end out of alignment, and broke most of the retaining clips for the front bumper last week after hitting a pot hole. Houston really isn't a city to commute in with a lowered car.

2. Street flooding is common here after major rain storms.

3. Wife would like a smaller car for her commute and parking situation at work.

4. Live in a townhouse with a very small garage, so a Juke, Fit or CR-V would fit perfectly along side the Z while I leave the MDX out on the street.

I'm really not looking to make my Z a garage queen, but tearing up a car I have almost $50k invested in now isn't my idea of smart either.

All I can tell you is they are leaking fuel LOL.. Make sure the recall is fixed before you buy one.

If you can possibly wait on the Juke for a bit, we might be getting a NISMO Juke next year.
