Sexy looking car

This car looks and feels great. Comfort,style and fells great on the road. The test drive made me fall in love with this car. Very roomy and enough trunk space for my needs

5.0

A great car for a single person/couple

This car is absolutely perfect - it's compact, reliable, the seats fold down and there's a lot of room! It handles INCREDIBLY and is so comfortable for long drives. There is limited leg room in the back seat so I wouldn't recommend this vehicle for a family or people who need a lot of space.

4.9

Fun car

The Juke is very different looking at is really fun. You have all kinds of people looking at you in the car and you can try to figure out if they like it or think its weird. Then when you drive you have so much fun! Quick, easy, trendy.. all positive adjectives!
