Best car I ever owned in my life.

2012 Nissan cube 1.8 Base

My Nissan cube is great! It has loads of windows so you can see everything. It has a side opening rear door so no bending. It has two compartments for storage which I love because I put groceries in there and items do not spill out. Five people can travel very comfortably in this vehicle. It gets awesome mileage which helps with higher gas prices. It has been pretty maintenance free with not many problems. I love how the driver's seat can lift up or down since I have arthritis. I also love the night light button you can turn on for the floorboard area. There is nothing I do not like about this vehicle. Everyone should at least test drive a cube!

Decently reliable vehicle with great visibility; great for in town errands

2012 Nissan cube 1.8

Very driver friendly; easy turning radius, great all around visibility due to decently sized back and side windows. Due to compact shape of the vehicle makes maneuvering pretty easy. Plenty of headroom and decently spacious legroom in both the front and back seating. Good for traveling short distances but struggles on hills. Acceleration is not as quick as other vehicles and engine isn't the quietest. Decently reliable with no noticeable worrisome issues after 7 years of constant use.

Great for storage and travel!

2012 Nissan cube

The Nissan cube is very cute and easy to drive. It is not too big but still has a lot of space for storage. It is good for long trips and commuting to work daily. I like that it locks once we start driving but the sound it makes when locking is quite loud. You get used to it pretty quickly though, and it is less startling.
