This car is a total joke. CVT transmission is junk. Had to have it replaced at 58,000 miles, of course it was under warranty, however now at 130000 miles the transmission is toast again. This time it is out of warranty!! Shouldn't have to replace a transmission so often.
Go to the Nissan Consumer Affair website and read the article regarding the extended warranty placed on their vehicles with the CVT transmissions. They are fully aware that they are ALL failing! This has been going on since 2003, beginning with the Rogue. My transmission failed after owning the 2010 Cube for only 2 years. Nissan refused to replace the transmission and now I am stuck either paying $4000 for a replacement, or buying a new car. Nissan refuses to recall the CVTs due to it "not being a safety issue." Tell that to my children who were scared to death when we were almost struck in traffic because my transmission failed while driving! You press the gas pedal, the car does nothing. Thank you Nissan, for providing me with the worst car & customer service I've ever had. I will never buy another Nissan.
This is my first car. I spent months car shopping. I test drove a Nissan Altima, Kia Soul, and VW Bug all at the same dealership and decided to go to a different dealership because none of them were for me. I told the seller that I wanted something small with lots of space and he automatically brought me over to the Cube. I had been looking at a cube online for months, but was hesitant. After test driving it, there was no doubt that it was the right car for me. It's quirky, yet cute. I feel like I'm less likely to get hit on the road because it's hard to miss the box. Lol.
Pros: comfortable seats, plenty of space throughout entire vehicle, rides smoothly (city wise), great speakers, controls on steering wheels, gorgeous interior and exterior.
Cons: Gas mileage is good, but it could be better, very noisy once you hit about 65+ and sounds like you have a window down, you get blown around a bit when on the highway while passing big vehicles, Windows can be hard to see out of when backing up at night with no street lights around.
It has a few cons, but they aren't too major. I LOVE this car and never get tired of driving it. There's a good chance that I'll buy another once its time for a new car.
If you're looking for a car that just keeps going, this is the one for you. At 190,000 miles I've had to replace the alternator, serpentine belt, and the front brake pads. That's it! It's not the flashiest, nimblest, or quickest car on the road, but if you just want a car that goes when you're ready too, the cube is just what the dr. Ordered
The first Cube I drove was a rental, like so many people I was very skeptical at first, but after I drove it for a couple of days I was hooked; I came back home and I bought a brand new 2014, one of the last ones made. Love my Cube, it has a great acceleration, is very good on gas 31.5 MPG. It's roomy, like the fact that has Bluetooth technology, a fantastic stereo CD/FM, good safety features, literally surrounded by airbags....
