I am a single Senior Citizen and admit it was not the car I was looking for when looking for when shopping for a new car in Dec 2014 after an accident. Once i took a test drive i was in love! Yes, it would be nice to have a little more room inside but then it wouldn't be a Juke it would be a different model.
Yesterday, 11-23-15, a driver ran a red light and we were in a head on collision. My beautiful Juke is totaled but I sustained minor injuries. Another reason to love this little car! I'll be looking for another one very soon.
Fun to drive. Cheap to drive. A perfect commuter car.

Don't let people scare you about range anxiety, this car is fine for anyone whose commute is 35 miles (one way) or less (that would be 90% of the population). The car is blissfully quiet in motion, leaps from 0-35 almost instantly and still has excellent pickup at highway speeds. You drive to work, come home, run your errands and then plug it in for the night and start with 75-90 miles range the next morning.
You will see a 15%-20% drop in range in REALLY cold weather (below freezing), but usually this is not a problem unless you are at the limits of your range during your daily commute.
If you can plug your car in at work you can, of course, extend your range. Costs about 3 cents a mile to run, versus 10 cents for a gas car.
No Gas Ever

Quiet, smooth, reliable ride. Smooth is a huge issue in Houston where the roads are anything but smooth. I charge the car at night and it has a full 84 miles when I leave. Running a/c or heat will decrease the mileage as will high speeds but I live only 10 miles from work and everywhere I go is within 10 -15 miles from home so its great for me. I don't really like having to watch the miles if I have a lot of errands but I have never gotten really low even on my busiest day. I haven't noticed any change in my electric bill so I am pretty happy overall.
