We purchased our Nissan Cube on July 3rd as a replacement third vehicle for our 18 and 20 year old daughters. We used the CARS program turning over our 1996 Cadillac in the process. However, now I can't get my wife out of it leaving the 08 Caravan for my daughters. This is a fun car to drive and it turns plenty of heads. There's an amazing amount of room for the driver and passengers, and visibility is fantastic. The pick up is more than adequate and the gas mileage has been better than expected: averaging over 32 mpg combined. Downside: road noise on the highway, but what do you expect for a car in this price range? Std air, power, ABS, and much more makes this easy to recommend.
Styling is unique, headroom is incredible. Power windows, cruise, decent stereo, ABS, and the swinging back door are great features, as is the reclining back seat.
A little more insulation for road noise on the highway at high speeds would be a nice, inexpensive addition. The passenger side gas filling is a little difficult to get used to after driving Hondas for 25 years.
