New cube in Richmond, VA!

Just picked up my Cube this Friday (after much haggling). Seems that with all the "Cash for Clunkers" deals flying around, dealers aren't as keen to work with a buyer anymore. But at least I got a decent deal on an S model in Chrome Silver with a sweet upgrade package.

This sweet little car has one of the best rides I've had in ages and man, it's so much fun to drive!

nice :yes: and welcome! is yours a manual or cvt?
It's a CVT. I'm embarassed to say that I don't know how to drive a stick :-[
The single transmission and it's seamless shifting is just plain amazing!
Can't wait to see you on the road. I am in Richmond VA as well and I have not yet seen another cube on the Richmond streets yet.

I wasn't able to haggle much at all. I was told that there was very little mark up.

I had a good deal of cash fall from the sky that I had to pay toward a new car so I wasn't too worried about negotiating.

A drunk hit and run my clunker a week before the cash for clunkers. That gave me an additional $3000.00 above and beyond the $4500.00 cash for clunkers program.

I got mine from Victory Nissan with a lifetime drivetrain warranty, lifetime oil changes and life time inspections.

I have been searching the internet for options, but I have mostly not found many other then the basic nissan items that I frankly am not that interested in. I think the one option I am mostly interested in is the shag carpet.

I have a manual drive (base package with wheel well guards and the carpet package). I think the automatice may have been a better choice, but having cash on hand now was more important to me with the reduced price also driving stick is damn fun.

lol, Chuck. I, too, got mine from Victory. I got the same "very little mark-up" spiel. My first trip to the dealership ended with this older guy in a straw hat refusing to work at all with me. Then, over the phone, i worked with a MUCH better salesman named Anthony who worked with his GM to knock off about $1500 or so.

Victory's oil change and warranty stuff was a huge draw to me as well. Now that you mention the shag carpet thing, what is the purpose of it? I feel like I need to get a mini vacuum for it, lol.

post some pics please! :)

lmk if the mirror works out
Welcome! CVT is actually the better choice in my opinion, and it gets better MPG!

from what i've read on this forum, people with 6-speeds have been getting just as good gas mileage as those with CVTs ;) it all depends on how you drive, really. in my opinion, if you can drive a manual already (or want to learn how to drive one), there's no reason not to get one unless you drive in heavy traffic every day.
