I just want to share my experience with everyone. I have a 2010 cube, it's a six-speed manual bought used with 33k miles on it.
When it hit 100k I changed the spark plugs and bought the iridium Denso plugs on eBay for like $25 for all 4. Oh what a mistake, never buy
spark plugs on eBay event ho they look like the real deal and came in the actual package and everything, I believe they were fake since I started having problems after like 10k miles.
Nissan cube OEM spark plugs are Denso Iridium, they last up to 120k. At auto zone, they're $17.99 each. I thought I was getting a deal. After doing research there
a lot of fakes on eBay which I believe I had gotten but if you compare they look like the real deal.

1. buy the Denso iridium spark plugs from a reputable shop even if you pay more get it from Autozone or pep boys, I wouldn't recommend amazon either since its a third party seller.
2. I recommend you change all spark plugs at once and change all the ignition coils at about 100K when your spark plug change is due.
3. The ignition coils by looking at them you can't tell if they're bad. After research, the OEM last about 100k.
4. Don't be cheap buy Hitachi or Denso or NGK ignition coils

I bought Hitachi ignition coils all made in japan, very reputable.
After I changed the spark plugs and coils the car drives amazing

Thank you for this post. I'm at 46K on my 2012 Cube 6 speed. I keep my oil/filter change info in a ziplock bag in my clove box. I'm printing this out and putting it in the ziplock too. That way I'll be reminded every time I change my oil and filter.
