Having recently bought a new Nissan Juke (build date February 2015 so it's the refreshed update version), I took the car in for its checkover and then the fun began. "See you in six months," says the service guy. "Probably be longer," says I, a low-kilometre driver, and it could be closer to a year based on the service schedule. My pre-purchase research showed Nissan Australia had it at 10,000 kilometres or 12 months. "No," says the service guy, "Jukes are six months." We agreed to disagree and check our sources, then later he called to advise it was definitely six-month servicing. I've checked 20 dealers and it's a 50-50 split for warranty services. If dealers are split on what is correct, what hope do consumers have of knowing what's right?
These days the quickest and easiest solution is to go to the maker's website. Nissan spokesman Peter Fadeyev says: "I can confirm the 2015 Nissan Juke requires scheduled servicing every 12 months or 10,000km, whichever occurs first."
