I wonder if the cargo option will have back windows or if it will be a panel style. Also what does the GINORMOUS package include???

In Automobile mag (http://rumors.automobilemag.com/6441608/news/more-2009-nissan-cube-pricing-revealed/index.html), the Ginormous package has the aero kit, interior lighting, illuminated side sills, custom front grille and some interior accents. To select the Ginormous package, you must also sign up for the interior design package and the alarm system...

The same article also mentions that the cargo option removes the rear seats and seat belts. The windows remain, but panelled would have been cooler...

As I 'm planning on an S Automatic. This is my view:

Good news>>>
Temporary spare tire. . . Outside mirrors:Bodycolor-folding-Power . . . Wipers: Front variable intermittent, Rear fixed intermittent w/washer. . . Electric power rack-and-pinion (Vehicle speed variable assist) . . . Power door locks w/selective unlocking and anti-lockout feature, auto-locking system, Remote keyless entry system. . . Cruise control w/steering wheel-controls. . . cargo cover
Bad news>>>
AM/FM/CD w/ 4 speakers, 2-DIN but no MP3/WMA playback on the "S" stereo, @ least they made it easy decision to go to crutchfield. Same with the lack of bluetooth even as an option on the "S". They just reduced the value of the car by about $250 with that call.

Huh?
Exhaust: Single system with main and secondary mufflers,

From the options these all seem worth my $$$ :


Splash Guards (4-piece body-colored set) $150, Vehicle Alarm Impact Sensor $100, Im guessing the "Interior Designer Package" $230 is either the two tone interior or the vent trim rings? If its the two tone I'll take it.

And big thanks for the post,

hmmm. I personally don't drive automatics. Nothing personal against automatic drivers, I pretty much outright refuse. In fact I belive its been over a year since I've touched any auto car and at least 5 or 6 since I have owned one. And don't tell me about how great CVT is... there is no clutch pedal, I won't drive it. I haven't tried the whole dual clutch thing, so I don't have an opinion on it.

That said, it appears I can only get 6 speed on the 1.8S. Fine. If I get a 1.8S, I can't get the things I want? i.e. keyless ignition, leather steering wheel, rockford sound system, alloy wheels. Seriously? alloy wheels? I refuse to own a car with hub caps. The bolt pattern and wheel hub is the same from 1.8S to 1.8SL. Why aren't alloy wheels an option for the 1.8S? I'd love to buy a 1.8SL if it had the manual option. ugh. I will have a talk with my dealer, but this could be a deal breaker for me. I'm kinda sad because I was really looking forward towards buying one of these. :(

Who honestly cares about hubcaps. Like anyone here wouldn't just put on their own aftermarket rims on it anyway.

I do hope that they can put the keyless ignition in the m/t S model, or the auto climate control (didn't seem that way looking at the spec sheet).

yeah I was looking at that too. Because I am the same way, I refuse to drive automatic. I think they can add those things, but it will have to be a "special order" at an additional cost (because it isn't part of a "package deal"), but I'm not entirely sure.

As for the CVT transmission and not liking it. I suggest you try it out. IT is very smooth and actually provided quicker pick-up and better gas milage.

Most of my driving is in stop & go traffic, so an automatic was the clear choice. Now if I was buying a vintage Ferrari, it would be manual (as if there was another choice LOL).

My last four vehicles were 5 speed manuals........The CVT is incredible for the driving I do. I hate stop and go traffic.
