I see some of you have mudflaps? I don't see them listed as an option for the cube anywhere. Did your dealer install them? Just curious do they actually help to keep dirt off your car? I've got dirt on the cube that is obviously being thrown up by the tires. But I'm worried about how they'd be in snow.

mel you can get mudflaps from the dealer, approx. $195.00 cost, plus install or ask them to install free!!! i got mine from the dealer when i bought my car, installed free.

Thanks Hana. Do you think they make a difference as far as keeping dirt off your cube or are they more for show?

They definitely keep the dirt down, you can see the dirt on the flap that would be on the body. Especially from turns wile the outer edge of the tire is outside the wheel well. I did not want these at first but I am sooo glad I have them.

They are not listed in the brochure here either nor can you find a photo from Nissan, at least not last time I looked.

mine were factory installed not dealer installed.

They are an option not an accessory. The difference being one is installed at the factory (option) and the other is obtained from the dealership. Now since we're talking about a business, a dealership can and will order and install factory optional equipment but typically for a higher price (labor charge) than what you could have had the factory install.

My color matched splash guards were a $150 factory option.

I'm a major fan of mud flaps. I have them on both my cars (older one came with them, for the other I had to locate a supplier -- import only (likewise sill guards)!) My primary concern was paint protection from stones and other debris kicked up by my tires. But yes, they help with dirt as well :)!
