I don’t normally blog about products, but I just have to spread the word! I just bought a 2015 Nissan Juke to replace my old friend Captain Jack – a 2005 black Volvo XC 90, which I loved dearly for a long time…. But Jack Black died. So now, welcome Al Capone! Why Al Capone? I think this car looks like a mafia bug, so seemed fitting!
It is so much fun to drive, and the more I drive it, the more I love it! It’s the easiest car to drive that I have ever owned-I think a five year old who’s ridden a big wheel could handle it! And driving isn’t really difficult, but I needed a football field to turn Jack Black around where this Juke can zip in and out of anywhere! Total breeze! It also gets fantastic gas mileage, claiming 28 mpg in the city and over 30 mpg on the highway!
Now, it isn’t the fastest car I’ve owned, and before I drove it, that was my main concern. Having had a Camaro, RX7, RX8 and turbo charged XC 90, I had to make sure it had enough pick up so I wouldn’t get creamed on an entrance ramp. Well, I am happy to report Al’s little turbo charge does just what it needs. No, I won’t be racing anyone off the line, but I’m too old for that anyway!
I love the blue tooth capability and hands free entry! It’s awesome not to have to grab my keys out of my purse when my hands are full coming out of the grocery store or Target! The interior is cute and fits with the style of the car and there is plenty of room for cargo when I put the back seats down.
So, if you are looking for something a little different, give it a Juke a try!
