Hello Tank,tanksow said:From what I have read, the Cube will be marketed in the US with both the 2WD and with the e-4 WD. I think the latter is only availabe with the CVT type transmission. I read the CVT is crappy on cars with small engines but works well on 6 cylinder cars like the Altima. The e-4WD seems to be a bit flunky anyhow, I read elsewhere that is only works from a dead start, and it shuts itself off as soon as the car leaves 1st gear. So is it really even worth the extra cost and maintenance? I am beginning to think the 2WD with the 6 gear manual and traction tires is the way to go here. The car already is going to have traction and stability control anyway.
I was wondering where you read about the e-4wd system? Are you sure this was for the US market and not Japan?
The system is meant for going in areas where it might be slippery, but it is not like what we would see in a typical Subaru
or Jeep. I believe your right about it only being available in CVT but a sunroof is also needed for this market as well.
