Nissan pays Juke owners for spec error

Nissan Juke owners in the United States should be pretty happy to find checks amounting $400 written to their names. It’s Nissan’s act of contrition for mixing up the specs for the Juke’s fuel tank.

The all-wheel drive version really has a 11.8 gallon tank but marketing materials indicate that all Jukes have 13.2 gallon fuel tanks. This is only true for the front-wheel drive version.

So that’s basically a different of 1.4 gallons. Not really much and most driver wouldn’t really mind the difference but Nissan just did the right thing and own up to their mistake and give their buyers a nice break.

$400 is more than a deal for the 1.4 gallon difference between claimed and actual specifications. We could all just hope that others follow Nissan’s noble example.

Here, you can probably forget about it. Warranty claims are a real joke most of the time. If you find something wrong with your brand new car, the dealership would use all of its might to blame you for it. Lemon law anyone?

Oh how I wish dealers and automakers would do the same thing here. Automotive sales is a cut-throat business that most dealers would say almost anything just to get you to sign the dotted line and drive off their lot with a car in tow.
