Love the gas mileage

2009 Nissan Cube 1.8 SL 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
Review
Gave in to the wife's wishes to go for the quirky styling and better gas mileage. It sure gets it's share of thumbs-ups and curious looks, which is good because we have sign graphics for our business on the back window. Unexpected 30.5mpg mileage for her daily 140-mile roundtrip to a new office, 50% better mileage than our Pathfinder. This alone will save us $200 a month. I like a lot of features, esp. with the SL package, and some I don't like, see below.
Favorite Features
Intelligent key. No more locked-in keys. (But "valet key" can only lock/unlock doors, unless I'm missing something). XM radio/upgraded stereo. Bluetooth (except trouble with a Blackberry, plus only works 1 phn at a time). Comfortable seating. Roomy. Big glove compartment. Turning radius.
Suggested Improvements
"Valet key" should be able to start engine. Fix wind noise. Better handling (ride is "twitchy"). Car is tinny (thin metal) and only time will tell when the squeaks and rattles will start. Suggest beefing things up a bit, but that could affect mileage... Larger wheels and tires might help handling.
