Reviewers aren't the only ones who are dismayed by the Juke's mileage. Owner forums carry a steady drumbeat of complaints of mileage remaining in the low 20-mpg range regardless of how it's driven.
The low mileage translates to a full-tank range of only around 300 miles, with the low-fuel warning light going on well before that. Most cars will usually go longer on a single tank than passengers' bladders will permit, so the Juke's short range is a shock. We've debated giving it an even lower score of 6, but for now, will give a little more standing to the EPA's official test numbers.
The Juke is not offered with any alternative powertrains, such as a hybrid or a diesel.
