Get an Email from my internet sales manager saying the Jukes are here and asking me if I want to come in for a test drive. I am outta town - figures. Saint Charles, MO - just west of Saint Louis.

Still, that's good news. I want to go see the ones near me, but would rather buy from the next batch or one after that.

Count yourselves lucky, we're not expecting them for probably 5-6 weeks in Canada

I'm the internet sales manager for a dealership in Montana and ours finally arrived this morning. They were supposed to be here a week or two ago but were delayed.

We've already got a couple people coming in to look at it, but I reallllly hope I get a test drive for myself in before it sells. It's the gun metallic colored SV with red interior. I love it and will definitely be ordering one for myself!!

Got to see it person and drive one!

"My" dealer; i.e, the closest got one Friday and sold it in a half an hour. But I drove across town this morning to the next closest dealer and they had a red S CVT/FWD which I got to see and drive.

So glad to finally see it in the flesh! And I have to say . . . it's SO CUTE! :p You macho guys probably didn't want to hear that, but don't care! I love the lights. I really love the sound it makes, too. VrriiiHRRR!

There weren't any real surprises (after all my research), but had some nice satisfying talks with the sales peeps. I told them what I was looking for (a black or white SL/AWD with red interior trim) so we'll see. Looks like the next batch will come in December. That's fine.

I am really surprised they got such a cheapo model in first- ??? BUT- glad you liked it.

I think they sould let the sales manager drive it first - after all - easier to sell something that you actually drove (and love---?):confused:

Violet, I agree 100%!

The car is SUPER CUTE. But has some macho elements. Almost like a bull dog, they're cute but still kind of manly.

I was trying to compare it to the Toyota Matrix AWD model this morning (price, fuel economy, features, and performance), and I have to say that it looks like my Matrix is going to get replaced with a 2012 model.

really? that's disappointing. From reading the reviews, the Matrix a bit wimpy on the horsepower, the driving experience is unexciting, and the fuel economy isn't that great either. But those are the 2010 models--I really don't want to wait for 2012! Plus, it's a Toyota, and I personally, would not be happy about buying from them. If I did, I'd get a Rav4 (too expensive for the options I want); or a Scion XB for the cargo room.

However, it's a better family car probably, and cheaper as well. Not to mention the 2 years free maintenance they're offering after their massive screwup. Your priorities may be different than mine, of course.

I meant that to come out as "My Toyota Matrix is getting replaced with a 2012 (maybe 2011) Nissan Juke" woops ;P

That I was comparing the Juke to the Matrix, and it's hard to believe that with the Juke I'd get better fuel economy, and better performance for a similar price - plus the Juke is MUCH more fun to drive than the Matrix (just this one person's opinion). Again, apologies for the confusion!

Yeah - that's what I was thinking - the bulldog thing. Although one article said the front looked like a Catfish.

Hey everyone, first post here. I've sat in a few Juke's and finally drove one yesterday. I've yet to get in an SL, but the SV with Nav is really getting my attention. Barring a major difference in the trims, I'll probably spring for the SV with Nav. My dealer is willing to give it to me for $1200 under MSRP so that helps. Hope to pull the trigger when my color comes in.

Nice dealer- i am surprised they are not going 1200 OVER MSRP for a new popular vehicle that just came in - how many do they have??

Just got mine yesterday!

Ended up with the SL model in Sapphire Black. It basically looks black, but in direct sunlight you can see some blues coming out of it.

Love love love the viewing angle in the car. I finally feel like I'm the big boy on the road again even though I'm driving a smaller car.

Initial thoughts.

Pros:
- Amazing look, inside and out
- Viewing Angle
- I-Con system
- Comfortable seats
- Punchy engine, especially in Sport mode
- Sweet sound system
- Bluetooth integration

Cons:
- No center console
- Trunk space
- Using the Nav while on the phone (you can just see the "do this next" icon, not the map).

...haven't had it for very long, but I love me this car. It's replacing a 2008 Mazda 3 sGT for me, and I couldn't be happier.

Looking forward to giving this car a bit more love. :)

They don't have any right now. The ones they had weren't my color. I have a good relationship with the sales manager at my dealership. He actually hooked me up with a 2011 Honda Pilot EX-L 4x4 for my wife last Saturday for Invioce cost (same a he's doing with the Juke). They have quite a few locations with all the major brands. Now it's just waiting for the right one to come in.

As for the camera, I'm not really in love with it. The only reason I want the Nav is for the upgraded stereo system. My iPhone has always provide good enough directions for me. I've had leather for years, and am welcoming the change back to cloth. I hate the cold in the winter (never had butt warmers), and REALLY hate the hot sticky summers. I guess I'm in the minority that doesn't really care for the leather. Oh well...

I got my Saphire black SV friday for $500 under sticker.
I unfortunately wasn't able to get them to move so much on the sticker, but was able to get them to increase the value of my trade-in by $1000 by referencing the KBB projected value...so I guess that counts for something?!

It's funny...the trunk is smaller than my old Mazda 3...yet my golf bag (with my driver in it) fit back there without much struggle :cool:
