Anyone else like the Nissan Cube?
When these became available in North America in 2009, I didn't really pay much attention.
But they've grown on me, and I can now say I really like the fun & funky style. (Apparently not enough people shared that opinion though, because they cancelled the Cube last year.)
Considering the Cube is built on the same platform as the Versa & Micra, I though to myself... hmm I could see myself picking one of these up. With the same 1.6L engine and a manual trans, they're probably reasonably fun & efficient around town (not so thrifty on the highway... its overall shape is a bit of a problem there).
And! They're coming into my price range.
But about the engine... I was WRONG.
Searching for used manual transmission Cubes today, I discovered they only came with a 1.8L. There goes Nissan, hot-rodding cars again!
