The cube is roomier than you think. Rear seats lay down and move back and forth. I've hauled lots of stuff in it by laying down the back seats. It gets close to 30 mpg; Has a cool artsy look and offers a comfortable ride. The only negative is when driving on the interstate during high winds, it is kinda hard to steer.

Don't get me wrong this is a wonderful vehicle.. if your just going to work and don't care what others think of you The good: Great reliability drove it for a year at 100,000 miles and only had to do oil changes Nice interior the inside was comparable to that of a small SUV The bad: Exterior styling is great but no one else thinks so if you buy this car be prepared to have people make fun of it and call you out at stoplights As far as performance goes it's horrible this isn't a sports car it's an econobox if your looking for something unique and sporty get a mustang Like I said if your older 30-50 yrs and don't care what people think of you this is a great car but if your a high schooler or someone in college beware because people for some reason take the time out of their day to let you know your car is trash

I bought Nissan cube during my college years, it was my first own car. It was great for saving gas, no problem to travel both short and long distance driving! Comfortable, large spaces, low gas milage, and such more. I have experienced driving a lot of other vehicles (I drove tons of different cars by rented, friends', families' and even moving trucks!) and I definitely can say, Cube was one of the best option for myself who need gas-saving car for school or also urban commuter who needs short trips and sometimes long trips (I had five times of driving +8 hour-long travel with this car and often +3 hours trips to another city, maybe more than 10 times!). I also never needed rent moving trucks while I own this car since the back space and trunk has enough spaces for my all stuffs includes furniture! Awesome car and will miss it (I had to sell it because I move to oversea). Highly recommend for college students and young urban people!

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!!

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!

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.

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.

Soft Paint Job

I recently purchased a Nissan Cube from a dealer in Toms River, New Jersey. My Cube is parked in my garage each night. I have had the Cube five months now. After a few weeks I noticed scratches by the front left wheel, then some scratches on the hood, and in the back, and so on. Then I got stuck in the recent snow storm here in the northeast (October 2011). My car was covered with several inches of snow and I only had a plastic shovel to clear my car off with. Needless to say my car now has scratches from getting the snow off. There are also several more scratches I cannot attribute to the shovel that I assume were from the highway ride home thru the storm. Unfortunately, the warranty states ?If your Nissan is damaged due to an accident or similar cause which destroys the paint and protective coating, have your vehicle repaired as soon as possible. The cost of such repairs is considered the responsibility of the owner.? So the dealer is charging me several hundred dollars to buff out the scratches. So I am making you, the reader, aware that the Nissan Cube comes with a soft paint job that scratches easily. Buyer beware.
