Default Oh carp, a Nissan Cube

I've mentioned a time or two that it is probably time for my wife to get a new car. She always says, "oh, mine's fine". It's a 03 Protege and she can really not care less about cars.

So, I just got a phone call.

"You know what a Nissan Cube is?"
"yesss..."
"I really like it."

This is the first time that she has expressed interest in a car for a couple of years since saying that she likes the looks of a Jag, which I can at least agree with.

You have to know my wife. When she finally does get something in her head it's tough to change her mind.

When I commented that I thought they were butt ugly she just said "it's a girl car".

Crap. I'd hate to be seen in one of those.

Well, I guess this one sucks the same for less money, so I have that going for me.

Should have typed a :gasps for air: in the middle there. I was worried about you while reading that.

I can't be more "out" for that. That said, a customer of mine just bought a Ford Flex sport. I was surprised to hear that it had a detuned twin turbo V6 from the SHO in it. 350 HP in a box and AWD. Guess it moves pretty good for a people hauler, even if it is as ugly as a Cube.

Seriously...my wife asked if we should get a Scion Xb yesterday.

One of her uncles passed away...and we somehow ended up with first dibs on it.

You can imagine my response. Although DDing a moving smoke screen did make me think twice about it.

**** it man, they are cheap and reliable. Get her what she wants, use it to move **** when needed (small **** at least), and enjoy a happy wife. She isn't making you drive it so who gives a damn.

I actually kind of like it. I wouldn't own one, but it's different.

No harm, no foul. Roll with it. At least she didn't put in for a money pit Land Rover or any of a dozen other rolling catastrophes.

I think they look kind of cool. But WTF do I know, I drive a girly car.

I'm thinking about getting a Honda Element next fall for a backup vehicle. Can carry SCUBA gear, Bicycles, and the dogs.

I saw one in real life a couple days ago. They're not actually half bad, in real life at least. They look alot better in person.

I'd be all over it. They are cheap. Get her that before she sees something more expensive that you can't talk her out of. My wife was tossed between a Navigator and a Lexus. She looked at the Genesis Sedan and loved it. I hurry up and bought that bitch!

A good friend loves his Honda Element. First car he's owned for more that a year in a long time. Might have her test drive one too if it's boxy she likes and not the Cube in particular.
