SAFETY

For the kids, the Juke was fun, too. They loved the way it looked, but there was a problem with the seat belts. The buckles were too buried in the seat cushions to make them easy to use for my 6- and 8-year-olds. If the seat itself wasn't obscuring the buckles, they were then too hard to grab onto and use. They'd just retreat deeper into the seat bench. Frustration station!

My kids' booster seats fit well in the Juke as did a forward-facing convertible. Rear-facing car seats didn't fare as well. I tried to place a rear-facing infant-safety seat in the Juke. With the driver's seat moved all the way forward, there was no chance to get the car seat to fit in the backseat.

The Juke has two sets of lower Latch anchors in the outboard seats. They're simple to access, and the three tether anchors on second row's seatbacks also were easy to use.

The Juke has the following standard safety features: all-disc antilock brakes with brake assist, front-wheel drive, an electronic stability system, traction control, active head restraints in the front row and six airbags, including side curtains for both rows. All-wheel drive and a backup camera and rear parking sensors are optional safety features.
