2010 Nissan Cube SL 1.8L from North America
Very good vehicle, but it is what it is
The only repair I have had to have on this vehicle is replacement of the steering control, but it was a fairly costly repair that was not covered under warranty.
My Camaro Z28 was hit head-on while I was stopped making a left turn, and was a total loss. I had only a few days of rental vehicle, which was a Nissan Cube S model.
After driving the rental Cube, I came to appreciate the fuel economy, practicality, and overall driving experience. Compared to the Camaro, it felt a bit like driving a completely enclosed Golf-Cart (but in a good way!).
While searching for vehicles, I came across the Cube SL I drive now, and have not regretted the purchase. No, it does not do 0-60mph in 6.8 seconds, but for what it is, it is a very good vehicle.
The sound system is Rockford Fosgate, and is the best stock car stereo I have ever had in any vehicle. The A/C is quite good even on very hot summer days. I have had back surgery, and the seats are very easy on my spine. The Cube is exceptionally maneuverable, and will park in almost any location with ease, so I can categorically say I am very satisfied.
The only blemishes for the Cube are premature tire wear, and the experience I had making a trip to the store, finding the Cube would not start when I tried to return home, even though the battery was fully charged (turned out the electric steering control unit had died). The repair was just under $1000, and was no longer covered by the warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
