FWD cars do great in the winter... pretty much as good as AWD most of the time. I wouldn't completely rule those out as it would leave you with much better cheap choices.

Somebody at Nissan design is trying way, way too hard. It shows in that freshly minted pile, as well as some of the newer Infinitis, their pinched off dump of a minivan and that gigantic wart on the ass of a dead mule they call a QX56. Nothing they make is visually appealing, looks classy or has any design with longevity to it.

Yes, the GT-R is fast and a performance bargain, still looks like something you'd pick off the bottom of your shoe though.

And I have owned 2 Infinitis in the past, so I have bought their products, just would't do it again for quite a while
...welcome to middle school. I realize you are trying to be funny with your descriptions... but it just makes you sound like you are 12.

I LOVE the Juke. I like the:

-funky looks (obviously hate it or love it)
-the very sophisticated AWD system (torque vectoring)
-awesome performance (1.6L DI Turbo)
-modest dimensions, which is convienent for city driving
-decent fuel economy
-VERY reasonably priced for the tech. you get

I say get it. Ignore the haters. Its certainly not a boring CUV.

You know whats ugly? The Nissan Cube... and you see those everywhere.

Do you know anything about the reliability of the CVT?

Thanks

As a healthy reminder, perhaps you should take your own sad little advice in your sig picture? Just because it appears you like Nissan you don't have to get all butt-hurt and resort to personal insults to defend your own choices, but if that's all you know how to do.....I feel sorry for you dude.

Oh and wasn't trying to be funny, was being blunt and truthful in my opinions, which is why I also said that I have owned a couple of Nissan products in the past.

I'm done wasting my time on this one and your responses. Have a good day.
Actually I think the Juke looks like shit and would never get one. Good comeback though

They did have a few issues in the earlier applications, and extended the warranty for that (do a quick google search). I'd say Nissan makes the best CVTs in the business at the moment. Besides, you're covered for 100,000 kms or 60 months for the powertrain.
