2011 Nissan Juke Owner Comments

problem #15

  • 108,908 miles


My 2011 Nissan Juke has been sitting in austin tx. Waiting to be towed from clay cooley Nissan. The motor has been rendered unfixable due to sludge from the engine. The Juke was recalled for a timing chain replacement on Dec 16,2015 at mileage 96,133. In their report it states that due to the timing chain having been stretched and rubbed into the side of the engine and timing cover;aluminum shavings from the block soaked in oil from the leak the chain created, is the reason the engine was malfunctioning this time around. It was only "patched and not fixed" states the mechanic from ed hicks Nissan. I purchased the extended warranty for 100,000 miles and at 108,000 miles the engine blows and Nissan does not want to claim responsibility for the damage. I took care of my car since it is all I have and believed in Nissan mechanics when they said it was fixed and ready.not having my vehicle has caused so much stress in my life. It has been since 8/17/2016 that I have been dealing with Nissan corporate and there Consumer Affairs department. It seems at this time they do not want to communicate with me anymore. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.

There's been a fuel leak from the fuel rail sensor after the recall was performed. It is concerning that Nissan would not cover the cost of this leak even though they say they performed the recall and repair the problem they did not replace the fuel sensor gasket when doing so which I believe caused the current leak. This seems to be a reoccurring problem and feel Nissan should take care of such a risky fuel problem just above the starter that could cause a spark.

There were 2 recalls on my car and I was never notified of the problems the, fuel pressure sensor and the Juke air inlet tube. I was driving down the highway, and I just had a larger problem with my power stirring, I was in the high speed lane traveling 70 miles an hour and my power stirring let go. I called Nissan of America to see if there were any re-calls on my car and I was told no, my car has been tied up at tasca Nissan in dartmouth, MA for more than 1 week, I was told the part would be in Feb 22.. Nissan offered to pay for the part which cost $1,908.29. But I have to pay for the shipping cost which cost 120.00dollars and I have to pay for the labor cost which is $480 dollars I am frustrated and angry, know one seems to care that I could of got killed or seriously injured in this car. Now I find out there were 2 re-calls on this car and I was never notified! I service my car regularly, I just spent over $800 dollars for new tires, wiper blades, oil change replacement of a tire sensor and I am renting a car at the present.. I noticed in my research that the rogue is being called back for power stirring problems, what the hell is going on? as far as the power stirring repair my warranty ran out, I feel this was a defect in the power stirring, but I am expected to pay for the repairs. I do have a case # it is 21635903 and I spoke with a man named jim his # is 615-725-7254. Tasca of dartmouth have been wonderful, they even tried to get the cost to me lowered but it fell on deaf ears., they also told me they would not let me drive my car because it was to dangerous for me to drive, at least they cared about my safety, thank god. I am a 63Y/O female who works hard for my money, but I guess I am going to have to eat this bill!.

Extend the fuel pressure sensor recall.... I have a strong gasoline smell in cabin. While car is [parked or driving] and engine is running, the air conditioning and/or heat is on a extremely strong gasoline smell fills the cabin and can suffocate you and your passengers. Worst when air is coming in from outside and not reusing the cabins air. Mechanic couldn't find any leaks and told me about a recall on Jukes. My Juke is not apart of the recall and is having the same problems as the fuel pressure sensor recall because of improper tightening. There are many complaints on forums online with people not being on the recall that have this problem.

I purchased a used 2011 Nissan Juke from a Nissan dealership. At first I had trouble filling up the tank. I brought it back to the dealer I purchased it from and they found a plastic piece from a plastic gas can stuck in the tank. From the moment I purchased the car, whenever I fill it with gas, my car, clothes, garage and first level of my home smells like gas. I looked on the internet and found there was a recall for this issue in 2012. I believe that whomever serviced the car for the 2012 recall did not do it properly. For the past week and a half I've been in contact with Nissan customer service who either disconnect me, give me incorrect information or don't return my phone calls when promised. I was told a supervisor would get back in touch with me in four to eight hours. They called me back three days later. I feel like my car is a death trap. I'm afraid to park it in my garage for fear that when I use my electric garage door opener, they're will be a spark and my entire condo will explode. I'm afraid to drive it for fear someone will toss a lit cigarette and the car will catch fire with me in it. I've had more migraines since I've purchased the car than I've had in 30 years. When I mentioned the problem to the Nissan dealer whom I bought the car from, I was told I needed a new gas tank cover. I've bought three of them with no improvement.

I had noticed fuel smell inside cabin for some time. After some research, I realized this was related to a recall that apparently had already been done to the vehicle. I dropped the car at local dealer and after service department denied smelling fuel or detecting any leaks, many phone calls and another visit to show them it really smelled like fuel inside, it was eventually fixed free of charge even though warranty was expired. The invoice sheet states fuel pressure sensor was loose and was re-tightened per bulletin.

Juke 4-cyl

  • 44,630 miles
As I was coming to a stop at the approaching red light, my car completely cut off. It was not enough time to turn on hazards or signal any approaching cars so the car causing the car behind me to hit into the back of my bumper. The hit caused something to fall off the top of their car and make a small crack onto my driver tail light. The car stopped because it was completely out of gas, even though the gas meter read that there was more than a quarter tank of gas in the car. There was a recall on my vehicle for the fuel system not reading correctly, which I had my car taken into the Nissan dealership in July, where they spent 3 hours "correcting" the problem. However, the problem was not fixed correctly as having no gas in the car (even though the meter said I had gas) caused my car to stop in the middle of a busy street, which in turn caused my daughter and myself to become involved in a car accident.

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.
