ahahaha i know exactly how you feel!!!!Every time i see the road test videos (and there are many of them) most of the North American ones are set in here Vancouver where the test drive event was held, I get so PO'd as I still haven't seen the car in the flesh. All I see in every vid is a bunch of people unaware that a bunch of never-seen-before Jukes are driving by and they don't even bat an eyelid. oh how I wish I had known about the preview, I would have gone and sat on the route just to see the juke drive by
The CVT is the reasonYes, I am not very surprised. Nissan doesn't really put any sounds in to their cars, only 370Z and GT-R. Even my maxima doesn't really have much roaring sound which i wish it did. They call it 4 door sports car but it lacks of nice deep roar sound like the infiniti G37. You might be able to replace the exhaust with a after market one like the dealer told me I could do with only approved brands like nismo or stillen and few more brands out there.
