Nissan Juke Owners Manual : Manual Transmission (MT)

WARNING

  Do not downshift abruptly on slippery roads. This may cause a loss of control.

Do not over-rev the engine when shifting to a lower gear. This may cause a loss of control or engine damage.

When the high fluid temperature protection mode or fail-safe operation occurs, vehicle speed may be gradually reduced. The reduced speed may be lower than other traffic, which could increase the chance of a collision. Be especially careful when driving. If necessary, pull to the side of the road at a safe place and allow the transmission to return to normal operation, or have it repaired if necessary.

CAUTION

Do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal while driving. This may damage the clutch.

Fully depress the clutch pedal before shifting to help prevent transmission damage.

Stop your vehicle completely before shifting into R (Reverse).

When the vehicle is stopped for a period of time, for example at a stop light, shift to N (Neutral) and release the clutch pedal with the foot brake applied.

Shifting


Shifting

To change gears, or when upshifting or downshifting, fully depress the clutch pedal, shift into the appropriate gear, then slowly and smoothly release the clutch pedal.

Start the vehicle in 1st gear and shift to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th gear in sequence according to vehicle speed.

To back up, pull the shift lever ring 1 upward and then move it to the R (Reverse) gear after stopping the vehicle completely.

The shift lever ring returns to its original position when the shift lever is moved to the N (Neutral) position.

If it is difficult to move the shift lever into the R (Reverse) or 1st gear, shift to the N (Neutral) position, and then release the clutch pedal once.

Fully depress the clutch pedal again and shift into the R (Reverse) or 1st gear.

Suggested upshift speeds

The following are suggested vehicle speeds for shifting into a higher gear. These suggestions relate to fuel economy and vehicle performance.

Actual upshift speeds will vary according to road conditions, the weather and individual driving habits.

Gear change         MPH (km/h) 1st to 2nd               15 (24)
2nd to 3rd              25 (40)

Suggested maximum speed in each gear Downshift to a lower gear if the engine is not running smoothly, or if you need to accelerate.

Do not exceed the maximum suggested speed (shown below) in any gear. For level road driving, use the highest gear suggested for that speed. Always observe posted speed limits, and drive according to the road conditions, which will ensure safe operation. Do not over-rev the engine when shifting to a lower gear as it may cause engine damage or loss of vehicle control.
