Used Nissan Juke (Mk1, 2010-2019) review - What do owners think?
Solid build quality and the use of tried-and-tested mechanicals means the Juke is a hassle-free choice
Nissan has always had a strong reputation for building dependable and durable cars, and the Juke continues that trend. Owners love their cars, praising not only their reliability but also the robust build and low running costs.
Despite the plastics feeling cheap in the Juke, Nissan’s reliability is largely excellent – all models are built at the firm’s Sunderland plant – and the car should be sturdy enough to stand up to daily wear and tear.
All the engines in the Juke – some of which it shares with Renault – are proving very reliable, with it finishing 54th of all cars in our 2017 Driver Power reliability survey, whereas the equally ageing Skoda Yeti finished second.
