Only car I've ever truly loved.

I purchased my cube to replace a Toyota Tacoma 4x4 in August of 2009. I had seen them, read up on them and had them in my file to test drive. They were hard to find at the time. Upon test driving it, I literally and completely fell in love. The styling, from the little things like a cup holder on the dash to the left of the steering wheel and the ripple effect on the ceiling, to the important things like cargo room (including back seat area, where there is NO hump - just flat floor!), which is important to me as a working musician with gear to haul, is super impressive. And all I need to say is that, to this day, when I'm driving down the highway, people who happen to pass me, or whom I pass, often turn & stare, in a good way. Great gas mileage, superior unique styling, and a fun ride. Great sound system too. I couldn't believe I'd fall for a car so heavily, but I did.

Great Small Car for Tall People & Seniors Too

Great mileage, more driver side leg room than our mini-van, more back seat leg room than large sedans Easy handling, quiet, nice cargo area. Sooooo easy to get in and out with the bad knees, much better than sedans. Cool & quick AC, easy to keep clean can't say enough....... We have had more compliments on this car than any we have owned in 33 years. Could not ask for a better vehicle! This vehicle shouldn't be overlooked by fifty somethings & seniors!

R.I.P. Cube

My Cube saved my life. I was t-boned very badly, and it flipped entirely over and landed on its tires again and all I had were three small bruises and a mild fat lip. The EMTs were shocked that I got out of the car under my own power, let alone virtually unscathed. This car is TOUGH and will take a beating to make sure you and your passengers are okay. Sadly my beloved Cube was totaled, but I am buying another one. It was my first car and I intend to own nothing but Cubes for the rest of my life!

Great Car for Mom

My nearly 80 year old mother bought one earlier this summer. She loves it - she is 4'11" and could no longer safely and comfortably drive her older, larger 4-wheel drive SUV. She no longer drives out of town and only uses the Cube for her in town errands. The large windows give her great visability, she can easily step in and out of it, and the rear gate opens easily for loading and unloading. The small size makes it easy for her to maneuver, the gas mileage is great, and the price was right for someone on a modest fixed income. She bought the base model 1.8S with the automatic transmission and it had everything she needed - the electric windows and door locks, and remote keyless entry. It gives her the independence to keep on driving. And her teenage grandchildren think Grandma has a cool car!

it's amazing what is being offered in "entry level" cars. Having luxury vehicles most of my life, I can honestly say I've never had a car with so much room, excellent visability, adequate performance, virtually every safety feature avalible and 34 mpg on reg. fuel. The cvt tranny makes all others feel like the stone age. I truly don't know of another vehicle that offers all that the cube does within 15k of the cubes price. Plus the wow factor of being unique. When you don't have to impress anyone but yourself, this is the car to have.

I was on vacation in May 2010 in Orlando and rented a car. I rounded the corner and found a cube. I was apprehensive at first, till the wife and I got in it. We drove all over town enjoying the cube so much, I wanted to drive a new one when we got back. I really wasn't looking for a new car, but ended up trading by paid for 05 Dodge Ram in and am very happy! Lots of room, handles great, great mileage!!Peppy enough to run 75 to 80.I added wind deflectors, and have noticed little wind noise. First car I ever fell for and i.m 6 foot and have great room for me and the family of 4 to zip around in. Puts the Kia Soul to shame. Get you a toaster. You will love it too!!

I am a college student, who had a suburban which was given to me by my parents. Downsizing was the best decision I ever made, not only for all the space that I didn’t need, but for the gas mileage! The hip, new age, sportiness that this car has, is amazing! I love the way it handles, rides, and TURNS!!! The comments and all the looks that I get because of my “box” always make my day. If I had the chance to do it again, I would!

We replaced our 1995 Nissan Altima with this - lots of fun and perfect around town. Amazing interior room, lots of fun features, adequate performance and handling, and feel very comfortable with Nissan given the track record of our Altima. I am not sure this would be the right car for lots of highway driving but it zips around town great and its small footprint yet huge interior makes it very utilitarian. Then there is the design..... we love it, I am sure others don't/won't. But it is fun to drive a car that is unique. Our daughter LOVES the backseat area with the reclining seats and little cubbie areas. Her friends have all expressed how cool they think it is. Plus Grandma lives with us and she likes the up high seating position (as high as many SUV's) and the really great visibility. So the whole family is in agreement on this one. One last thought - it fits both my 5'2" wife and me (6') and that can be tough to find. Overall we are happy we got it. We bought it over the Kia Soul (not as roomy and poorer backseat area) and the Madza 5 (bigger, more traditional). Good luck with your choice ... we love our big inside, small outside Cube.
