Can't wait to get it back from body shop! Everybody stops me wants to know how I like it and everybody looks at it like what? Tell them i'm one laughing-at the gas tank Hate driving my 305 Hyundai since i got the Cube. it is a great ride and drive very comfortable for mid size people great power-
I am 6'5" the wife is 5" both over 40 This is our first new car. The drive home was great. It has 100 miles now. There is SO MUCH ROOM! And drivers seat fits us both. We got the 6sp. manual to save $$$. The only thing so far is "Wind noise" at interstate speeds. Pearl white and black interior.
So much room. Feels like driving a minivan.
Wind noise over 60 mph. No passenger side armrest.
At 60 years old I've owned and driven many new cars. Driving the cube is like sitting in a chair at home looking out a window. It's so easy to get in and out of and very roomy. The 6 speed is smooth and makes the car feel like it has more then 122 HP. The engine in this car idles so smooth and quiet you have to look at the tach to make sure it's still running. Much less wind noise at highway speeds than I expected from a square car, ride's much smoother than I expected as well. Has more standard features than you usually find in an entry level car. Takes a little getting used to the absence of road feel (feedback).
Big doors and ease of entry / exit. Love the view and the way it drives. Love the styling, looks like nothing else on the road. Get's a lot of attention. Something you would expect to see a spaceman crawl out of. Adjustable rear seating. Rear swing open door, kinda looks like a micro-hearse
Better seat material, everything sticks to it. Center arm rest with storage. Lacks an MP3 CD radio (at least in the "S" model.
I clunked a 1996 Dodge longbed with extended cab for my cube. Best move I ever made. I travel daily in my work and have cut my expense by 66%. It gives me personality and comfort. Little but practical and fun to drive. Discovered the diso light by accident; love em. The wife and I will take it on vacation in 2 months; she loves the panoramic view. Best car I've owned in 15 years!
Electric(all) disco lights, CVT transmission, color (red), Fun car!
Front storage could include space for glasses, rear door pockek could be made larger for jumper cables, etc.
