Nissan Canada was giving away 50 Cubes last year and my brother actually won one of them. They gave him the top of the line model (for Canada, I think in the USA you have the KROM model) with the CVT transmission in that blue-green colour.

We took it on a road trip to NYC in the summer, I drove the whole 1600kms round trip. It was pretty comfortable, albeit quite slow. But it's a good round the city car, lots of headroom, couch like seats, recline-able rear seat, lot's of storage space while remaining quite compact. You get a lot of "WTF" looks from people at red lights. Toyota never sold Scions in Canada so it's the first time people are seeing really boxy cars here.

Divorce her, its the only way out.

Or tell her she can have it, but anytime you go anywhere we'll just take your car instead of hers.

I wouldn't be caught dead in any of those Kenmore refrigerator looking pieces of ****. But thats just me.

I'm kinda surprised at the hate. They're like new gen econoboxes. I'm actually liking the kia soul for example.

Of course I'd rather get an Austin Mini first if I could find one that wasn't a rolling shell for less than $3000.

Sucks to be you guys with your Cube wanting wives! My fiance says she loves her '02 Saturn SL-2, which has proven to be a good car so far. Bought with 66,000 miles, it now has 120,000, only took oil changes, tires, brakes, and a thermostat. I asked her what she'd want when it's time for the Saturn to go, she says, "Audi A4 if we have kids, otherwise I want a C5 vette".
