The Nissan Cube is simply an amazingly magical car. Im 6' 5.5" yet I have more room than a mack truck inside!!!! If you want to look, feel, and BE different, then buy a cube. All of my college football teammates clowned me when I first bought it until I made them experience the Cube effect. "C" meaning coolness and comfort to the max. "U" meaning underestimated. "B" meaning Best car in its class. "E" meaning efficient beyond means. Thats when I hit them hard with the "fill up twice a month line". Then of course they shut up. Its so much fun to drive!!! You can whip in to any parking spot in seconds and coming from a huge truck, you dont understand how much easier that makes your life. The stereo is absolutely amazing because the car is so tall, it makes the sound resonate and it sounds like your at the actual concert. The seats are almost like sitting on your favorite couch plus they ALL recline. Cool right?? I bought the Sapphire Black Pearl because in the daylight, you get this sparkling blue and green color changing sweetness but at night, its suave, elegant, and pitch black. The only thing I wish was better is the power. The acceleration at times can be kinda slow but I guess when you have 4 or 5 275lb linebackers inside then any car would suffer. LOVE THE CUBE end of story.

A PARADOX: LOOKS SMALL BUT REALLY BIG!

My wife and I purchased a 2011 Carribean Blue SL in June of this year. We were looking for something that had plenty of room, but also was easy to enter and egress from the car. We are caregivers for her mom who is 88 years old and has tough time getting in a vehicle to go shopping or to the doctor. We checked out all of the vans and other small suv's, but the seats were just to high off the ground. We saw the CUBE at a dealer where we wanted to check out a used van, but, there were none to be had. Saw the CUBE in the lobby window, sat in it and was surprized at the room inside and seating arrangement. You don't sit "down" in a CUBE, you just get in. The seats are the perfect height. The SL model is loaded with bluetooth, auto climate control, sattelite radio, incredible music system, on-screen navigation, four reclining seats, and maybe best of all, we get 25-26 mpg around town. Have not gone on a trip yet. Every day someone says "I love your car" or is curious about its design. Some want to sit in it and are amazed at it's roominess. CHECK IT OUT~

Have one this month as a rental. Don't expect a cheap car ride! It drives and handles very well in town and on city highways. I haven't had the chance to see it perform on wet streets but I don't expect to have any issues there. My only complaint is that I don't understand why there an armrest for the drivers's seat but not the passenger. I think in today's market this is a great value for the $22,000 range.

I really do love this car. It's comfortable, super roomy, handles well, has good pick-up, looks fun and unique, gets great gas mileage (33 in the city, for me), fits four adults comfortably, and yet fits into the smallest parking spots very easily. I've only had it for a few months, so I can't say too much about the reliability yet, but so far there have been no problems at all. The automated hands-free bluetooth connection to my phone is an excellent feature, and being able to charge and play my my iPod via the car stereo is fantastic. I can't imagine a better car for the very low price tag.

I have owed my Cube only a month or so but I read many consumer reviews about it before buying! Honestly there are hardly ANY bad reviews! So I bought one with just over 15K miles, and I have to say it's probably the best car I've owned yet! It fits me perfectly! I absolutely love the styling, standard features, and options available! The gas mileage is amazing as well! I average 28mpg and that is mostly city driving, with occasional highway. I have yet to take it on a long trip but I'm positive I will average no less than 34mpg? Another great thing about it is that it's ALL WINDOWS, so I would say there are NO blind spots! I do agree with the other reviews here, I love how you just open the door and get in, no climbing up or down! It's comfortable! I would buy another in the future for sure! AWESOME SOUND SYSTEM with blue tooth and steering wheel controls! iPod hook up! The works! Mine came with a 20+ mood lighting lot that's pretty cool, at night of course. Two thumbs up here!!

I've had my cube SL for about 1.5 years now and it's my favorite of the many cars I've ever owned. As a middle-aged guy, I appreciate the fact that you just open the door and get in. You don't have to bend over and you don't have to hoist yourself up. As others here have said, the perception of roominess is amazing. When I get in any other car now I feel claustrophobic. I track my fuel consumption closely and average about 25 mpg in the winter and about 28 mpg in the summer in mostly stop and go short distance driving. My best mileage was 35 mpg on a long-distance road trip where I kept it at about 75 mph. The CVT is really amazing in that it can keep the revs way down on the highway, but is instantly responsive when you put your foot down. With 4 people on board, it had no problem maintaining speed in the mountains of western Maryland. It just revved-up and stayed there. The handling is surprisingly good and you can really throw this little thing around. Definitely not enough power to get yourself in trouble, but thanks to the CVT will scoot quickly away from a stop and be up to speed almost instantly. And oddly enough it does it all without winding out. Kinda strange. In a nutshell, it's roomy, economical, fun easy to park (live in DC metro) and different. Guess that's why Nissan can't give these away.

Lot of features for the $$$

by from Cincinnati on October 7, 2013

Love the overall design of the Cube - wish it was bigger - but still has a lot of space for people & things - lots of unique features for a vehicle at this price point!

This car is wonderful for families. The back seats are very wide, making them great for transporting those who need to lie down in back, with a very smooth ride, and the Krom style inner decor and "hot-tub" feel with changing feet lights, bluetooth speaker over the driver's seat, stereo sound, and curved front panel allow you to literally 'put up your feet' on the passenger side and recline. The back seats also recline, and the trunk opens to the side! There is a huge amount of space in the trunk, and as a tall person, no more crouching and squeezing myself in! It gets excellent mileage, 30 mpg city driving!! Love it!! Fun for the beach, comfortably seats 5 bodies + 5 body boards +5 beach bags inside!
