I am not an owner, but for a week and some 1500 miles in Southern California and AZ, I have rented one.
It gave me a good, long extended test drive.
My heart sank when they gave me this thing for a rental, but I have changed my opinion on the Cube.
First of all, it is extremely roomy. Luggage space is a little shy with the rear seats up, but cavernous with them down.
Seating room is incredibly roomy and comfortable.
The ride is soft, the steering and cornering are predictable, and it feels safe.
It is fun, relaxing and very enjoyable to drive.
The engine can be buzzy with the CVT, but even that grows on you.
I love the side opening rear door. Very cool. Reclining back seats? Are you kidding me? What a great feature.
Ingress and egress is very easy.
A great little car for day trips and urban driving.
Not really a highway cruiser. At speeds above 65, there is quite a bit of wind noise, as you would expect from a box on wheels.
It is more than adequate for power, I hit 90 mph on the interstate and it had more to go. I was actually surprised I was going that fast.
Sensitive to wind.
The looks have grown on me, and I have to say this little car has really impressed me. If you are thinking of buying one, do it.
