Nissan Recalls Nearly Every Juke Sold For Door Lock, Turbocharger Defects

Nissan is recalling 118,000 Juke crossovers world wide due to a pair of defects that could pose problems for owners. Nissan says that the door locks could freeze in cold-weather, presenting an annoying problem for owners in cold climates. In addition, a boost pressure sensor on the turbocharger may malfunction, causing a check engine light to appear.

Both issues aren’t exactly critical, but definitely could be annoying for affected owners. Nissan also said that the issues were regional, with Japan, North America and certain European countries affected by the door lock issue. Virtually every continent save for Australia is affected by the turbocharger issue. Nearly every Juke sold worldwide – 118,000 in total, will have to have something fixed.

    I bought my Juke new Sept 2012 .In Nov got in the car but then back door wouldent shut the passenger had to sit in the back holding the door shut while i drove this happened 3 times Took it back and was told what do expect with how cold it is. I bought wd40 to spray in lock which helped but this should not happen. Now i have gone down in the morning and cant open the door iv tryed opening it with key in lock still wont open but after about an hour it opens . Nissan have said they cant do anything until it happens when its with them . I am not locking the car as i am worried i wont get in it in the mornings and when i come out of work midnights .As anyone else got this problem as im so angry with Nissans.

    I have a 2012 Nissan Juke. There is an issue with my driver side door lock being frozen and unable to get keyless entry into my vehicle. Im sure this issue isnt the worst issue I can have, but its very frustrating that they cant do anything about it eventhough there are recalls on this vehicle for the exact same reason. I called Nissan Corporate and because my vin and part numbers are not on their recall list, there is nothing they can do. Obviously if Im having the exact same issue as all the recalled cars have, its definitely a more widespread issue than they think. I will never buy another Nissan again. Worst customer service ever.
