OK, list your single favorite thing about your Cube and then list the single least favorite thing about your Cube.

Pro: Intelligent Key! I drive for work and get in and out of my car about 50 times a day so it's awesome to drop it in my pocket and not have to even take it out until I get home.

Con: The iPod interface cable! Why's it right in front of the cup holders? Why is it not in the glove box? Why is the cord the length it is? Too long to allow you to put the iPod in the cup holder well and too short to reach any center console holder.

Pro: Neat and different design that is eye catching and new (not to take away from the XB crowd).

Con: The rear stowage is horrible, the floor and rear seat only offer flat storage once you buy a box to further limit that storage.

PROs:
- Massive amounts of headroom
- Incredibly comfortable seats, especially the upgraded wave-stitch pattern fabric
- Great MPG
- Fantastic visibility / lack of blind spots
- Amazing options available and affordable too

CONs:
- Rear bench seat should be able to move/adjust back ever further to allow more leg room for rear passengers
- Door arm rests could use more padding for elbows
- Center console could be better designed to allow for more storage
- Front passenger foldable arm rest should've been made available

8) Intelligent key :yes: :yes:
Really comfy seating and headroom :yes: :yes:
Auto climate control :yes:
Bluetooth pairing with cell :yes:
Fridge back door. :yes:
Good vision. :yes:
Starting to get hooked :-\ with satellite radio,especially BBC World news and Electronic Music
with the Fosgate,but then wasn't that their plan.


Poor stowage.But adequate for me.Want the Japanese simple lift out storage box.
Door armrests too hard.
Small mirror.Replaced with 11.5 inch wide angle
No passenger arm rest.
Back seat could go back more for more leg room.
The bungees and ripple hooks should come included.Ridiculous pricing for very cheap items. :eek:

I can live with above as the Cube to me is a totally satisfactory vehicle for me. :yes:

Wot's Ipod :roll:
My port is hidden by garbage bag suspended by my DIY brushed stainless ripple hooks. :yes:

Cheers,
Bryan.

No way. This is a big part of what sold us on the cube - one of the only cars that we could find that would fit our baby's stokke stroller without having to collapse it. Can't get better than that.



As for my Pros:

Looks
Price
Clever use of space
Safety
Fuel Economy

Cons:
No Leather Option
No Sunroof
Unsupportive Front Seats
All Season Tires

-no storage in the front cabin area.
-bunch of useless cupholders and no where to put coins out of sight
-no center storage console.
-no support seats
-no auto up.down for other windows
-a thing i just foudn out... the A/C goes from recirc to outside air on its own. i never notice its changed until im suckin in the smell of the big rig in front of me.

Pro: Big windshield- It's like driving a fish bowl!

Con: Big windshield- It's like driving a fish bowl with smashed bugs all over it! This thing collects bugs so fast I bought a little pack of Windex wipes so I can clean the windshield every day.

single favorite thing: styling

least favorite thing: lack of awesome options the japanese cube offers. the shag dash topper doesn't make much sense without the full shag floor-carpet option.

The retractile back seat only goes forward. I measured the distance between the seats and there is 1/2 inch more room than the Fit with the seat all the way back.

PLEASE TELL ME THIS PART WAS A JOKE.

I am 6'4" tall. I can sit behind the driver's seat when it is adjusted for me to drive, and not touch anything other than the seat I am sitting on. Unless you're Manute Bol, the Cube is roomy enough for ANYBODY.

With only 1/2 inch difference between the Cube and FIT I have been told even kids complained the FIT did not have enough room.
Interesting :D

@milo, no joke at all. you must be all torso with short legs then ;) i'm 6'4" as well and when i sit in the rear, i'm pretty much maxed out on leg room with the front seats back a bit for my frame. is the rear leg room horrible? absolutely not. would i prefer more room (like the element)? yes please.

@palaina, I sit in the back often with the baby while my wife drives and she is a leggy 5'10". We live close to her family and her dad is also 6'4", the mom is 5'11", older brother is 6'3" and younger brother 6'7". My twin brother is 6'4" and I have several friends from 6'0" to 6'5". Clearly I appear to be the board anomoly here because no one else seems to have the same issue. The lack of additional rear seat adjustment is a con for our personal needs, so if it's not for those of you who disagree then it's all good. To each is own.

OMG jolly green giant family! i guess i'm just not used to seeing that many tall people, let alone that many in a single family. i know only 1 person who is 6'4" and he fits behind me lol
