"The Nissan Cube is/was probably the worse designed vehicle that I have used this century, and maybe ever. From the problems with the CVT to the lack of storage, the Nissan Cube has almost nothing for the end user. The one thing it has, and the one thing that I purchased it for was the ease of access. I have a medical problem, with my back and knees, so I needed ease of access and an automatic transmission. An inordinate number of Cubes had a problem with the CVT transmission, requiring replacement. [When not in warranty, replace costs > $4000] <div>
</div><div>The interior sizing wastes most of the cubic feet of space. The high head space is wasted on most drivers. The lack of true folding rear seats means the space in the rear is VERY limited. The cute things like cargo buttons and dash toppers are useless in the real world. There is less that 100 cubic INCHES of storage space in the glove box or other cubbies. The glove box door is big, but inside it has a tiny little pocket that will not even hold all of the books that came with the Cube. The radio has a hookup for iPods but little else. The AUX input is incapable of doing much of anything in today's world. [I totally replaced mine.] The fuel mileage is poor. </div><div>
</div><div>The really sad thing is that Nissan could have easily done so much more with the Cube. Minor body changes could have helped the aerodynamics, thereby helping the gas mileage as well as the boxed look. The interior could have been great with few changes. A mechanical rethink could have helped the performance in many ways. This car was not designed for anything except a "Cute" look. NOTHING else. The Nissan Cube is a mis-designed, bottom scraper with nothing real to offer any driver.</div>"
