2013 Nissan Juke Owner Comments

I purchased this vehicle brand new. Up to date on all servicing. 81000 miles. On 1/12/2017 was driving vehicle and went to enter into highway. While entering into highway cars speed started to decline at a fast rate down to 25 on a 70 mph highway. Almost causing and accident. Was making a pop/whistling sound under hood. Could not drive above 40 mph without the sound getting louder and worse. Called my mechanic and took it straight there. When hooked up to diagnostic machine it showed it was the turbo. Tried to drive car home but could not make it up hills. This is a safety hazard. Loss in performance in the turbo causes speed loss at a drastic rate. This could be fatal in situations where acceleration is needed. Part went out with no prior warnings. I could have been struck on the highway or caused an accident entering on it so slowly. Contacted Nissan and to my surprise there has been no recall on this part even though I have read hundreds of complaints on the same issue.

The contact owns a 2013 Nissan Juke. While driving at an unknown speed, an abnormal noise emitted under the hood of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that sludge was on the motor and the timing belt separated from the engine. The technician advised that the motor and timing belt needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 76,000.

I am very angry.. I wish I had done my research before purchasing my 2013 Nissan Juke. The extended warranty is a joke. My son and I were nearly in an accident on the highway due to the faulty turbo. The car began to decelerate and went from 65mph to below 20mph. Nissan is declining the claim. I even submitted proof of oil changes and etc... I have registered a complaint to Nissan since this has happened, I did research. Juke's from 2011-2014 have turbo issues. How can all these people be wrong?? the 1st time, happened in March. I took it in to the shop and they 'repaired" the car. Then it happened again. This time they are saying it is the turbo.. I registered a complaint with Nissan case #22368872 they said they will call me tomorrow. I need this resolved. It is very scary and dangerous.

My wife was driving about 70 mph, her Juke started losing power & service engine light soon came on. She took it to dealership they told her it would be covered under warranty. They next day or so said they were not going to cover under her gold extended warranty. The tech that installed a new turbo from factory said it was defective. They are refusing to cover under the warranty

While parked in our driveway for more than 30 hrs, my 2013 Juke burst into flames. The fire dept did not find any evidence of arson or tampering and there was no weather occurrence to explain why it became engulfed in flames. The fire started in the engine compartment at 12:40am. Nissan has said that they examined the car and their technical specialist found " no evidence of a product problem, failure, or malfunction that may have caused or contributed to this incident". Nissan will not tell me why the car burned up, just they're not responsible. Why would a low milage, well maintained vehicle catch fire unless there was some kind of product failure? I was lucky that only property was damaged but I feel Nissan usa is not taking the incident seriously.
