Newbie searching for a juke

Post by Madfish » Fri Nov 02, 2018 10:17 am

Hi, thanks for letting me join :)

I'm on the hunt for a Juke and thought I'd join up to try and gain some knowledge on these before splashing out...

Nice to see an active car forum still in use :)

Going to look at one this weekend, wish us luck :)

Hi Madfish

Welcome to the forum.

Assuming you are looking at a secondhand motor there is a wide range of models to choose from, both petrol and diesel in a variety of trim and power levels. Boot space and access to the rear seats is a bit restricted and worth checking otherwise I have no adverse comments.


Happy hunting and best of luck.

Hi Madfish, From the comments on here the 1.2 petrol seems to be pretty high on petrol consumption, so be warned.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Bought a 2015 Tekna diesel last April.
Took a while to get used to it but now I love it.
Not the fastest thing but I've had speed with TVR, V8 and V12 jags etc etc.
Don't need to prove anything so suits me fine.
Great on fuel and cheap.. £20..a year road tax.

Cheers for the replies :)

It's got to be a petrol for our needs, the 1.2 sounds ideal

Quick question,

I'm looking at 2014/2015 tekna models.

How can I tell if its a facelift or not with the bigger boot etc?

I had a 2015 1.2Digt and fell for Nissan's sales pitch as the one to go for as it's a modern economical engine......rubbish! struggled to get 28mpg out of it, took it back a few times for checking out and got talking to one of the mechanics who admitted they are very poor on fuel.
Now the happy owner of a Tekna Dci and love it, economical and very quick 😎

If you can afford it, go for Tekna spec.

I've avoid the 1.2 engine if possible. The tank on the juke is really small, and poor mpg means filling up way too often. If going petrol then I'd choose the 1.6

Facelift have LED DRLs and bigger too. All the facelift non-4x4 have the bigger boot.

Agree with above
I have the Tekna and it's loaded with gadgets 😎

Hi Madfish, we have all said that the 1.2 can be very expensive with regard to the fuel consumption, but if you get one make sure that the timing chain as been checked and that there is no problem with the oil level bacause a few earlier models had oil problems.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Oh, not the reports I was hoping for with the 1.2...

We will be getting a tekna as it's the spec we want but as we do less than 6k miles a year the diesel isn't a suitable option.

Based on that we thought the 1.2 would be perfect but hearing the reports here and on the net the 1.2 isn't sounding like a reliable or efficienct engine :(

We put a deposit on a 2015 1.2 tekna with 41k miles but seriously thinking about backing out now after recent reading :(
