In August of 2013 I purchased a 2011 Nissan Juke. 2 months later the battery died. I replaced it. Between that time and March 2015 I had to replace the battery 2 addition times. In March of 2015 again the battery dies. I jumped started it a couple of times in a period of 3 days. On the 4th day while driving the car acted as if it would stall on me while driving. This scared me enough to take it into the dealership. They ran diagnostic test on the car and found nothing. They replaced the battery (corporate reimbursed me for the cost) now in Feb 2016 the new battery they installed died again. I did as they advised me to do the previous time which is to have it towed into the dealership instead of jump starting it and driving it to them. Again they ran diagnostic test and found nothing. They have again replaced the battery. The dealership acts as if the problem is fixed. My concern is that a few months from now the car will again drain the battery. What about if it drops a charge while I am driving it on the road? I have read several complaints on line regarding the same issue with other 2011 Juke models but I do not see it mentioned on the national highway safety administration website.

My radio control stopped working. When trying to raise or lower the volume, the radio dial simply mutes the radio. The steering wheel controls are still working. Dealer informed me that they would need to replace the radio with a refurb and it would cost about $400-$500. This car is 5 years old, the radio dial should not stop working within that time. No other option was made available to me.

  • 32,500 miles


My Juke caught on fire this morning! it only has 32,400 miles on it and I am left with no car and little interest from Nissan. I did smell gas but did not think much of it. My son is on dialysis 3 days a week and at first the corporation told me I would be reimbursed for a rental car for three days but before the call concluded they changed their mind telling me it was pending decision. There is a recall on the 2011-2012 Juke fuel injected engine due to fuel may leak from the pressure sensor, increasing the risk of a fire, that I was not notified of. Nissan is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Juke, infiniti qx and infiniti M vehicles. The fuel pressure sensors may not have been tightened to the correct specification. As a result, the fuel pressure sensor may loosen due to heat and vibration causing fuel to leak. They tried to tell me that my car was one that had already been fixed....so, then why am I left walking in the subzero temperatures?

Juke 4-cyl

  • 4,977 miles
The contact owns a 2011 Nissan Juke. The contact stated the engine failed and the battery drained excessively. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the failure could not be diagnosed. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 90,000. The windshield made a squeaking and rattling noise when driving and going over bumps. It was almost a constant sound. The engine would idle and sputter, when stopped at a red light. When the consumer accelerated from the light, the vehicle stalled. It was determined the timing chain snapped and caused damage to the crank sprocket and chain. The times chains, guides, timing chain tensioner and crank sprocket were all replaced. The vehicle started but mis-fired due to the valves being bent. The engine block was then replaced, due to damage to the valve guides and piston tops. The vehicle had to be to towed to the dealer, because the vehicle was emitting blue grayish, colored smoke, and then stalled. Updated 06/18/14

Juke 4-cyl

  • 20,000 miles
The sending unit in the fuel tank failed stranding my 19 year old daughter in traffic during a storm with very poor visibility. This could have resulted in a multi-vehicle wreck with fatalities. Law enforcement arrived at the scene and directed traffic in the rain. The vehicle was towed to the dealership and repairs were made.
