Just list things that weren't apparent when you were buying it, saying something like "I wish it had more cargo space" does not count.

One of my gripes is that the plastic on the dash and door panels is not the same, different shade and it shows, it irks me everytime I see it.

Yours?

No passenger armrest. Just flat didn't notice that. I've since installed a small center console but it's just stooopid that it doesn't come with one or the other.

I'm very, very happy that something like that (minor) is my major gripe.

i wish the center console was a few inches higher...its kind of a far reach for my ipod, phone, etc. i also think they could have included the coat hook in the d-pillar like the previous generation

Front passenger armrest.
No sunroof option


The sunroof one is a minor quibble, though. I have never had one, as they reduce the headroom. The Cube is the first vehicle I've owned where this would not have been a problem.

Hey, you're not playing by the rules. This thread is about something you didn't know before you bought.

The dealership we bought ours at had one in the showroom (White Krom) *with* a sunroof. Aftermarket, of course, and they had to remove the ripple ceiling to do it.

My gripe (well, my wife's gripe) is the mirror in the passenger's side sun visor; it's too far away from the seat for her to do her makeup. :)

Tell her having a mirror is useless because she's beautiful with or without makeup, you'll make her day. It works even better if you want to buy something and she doesn't approve of the purchase. lol

I didn't realize just how crappy the ground clearance was before buying. I knew it was lower than my SUV that I traded in but I didn't realize exactly how low. I have to be careful of curbs and I'm really wondering how that's going to work when there is packed down snow this winter when the idiot that plows my street plows me in.

Blind spots; wind noise; white seats; fabric at the arm rests in back (doggie drool stains) rear seat not removeable; OD off doesn't allow for engine braking (too severe a gear change); obsessive desire to customize (uncontollable); oh and my face gets sore from smiling while driving it. Other than that I love it!

Passenger side arm rest. Didn't notice that :-[

Visor mirrors don't light up.

Door vibration from the speaker.

Seatbelt digs into my hip a bit.

But these are minor annoyances in order to drive such a great looking car.

Bugs me when a car passes by and I can see the reflection in the window opposite of the car, or when My friend is looking over and I can see his face nice and huge in the window......

Does anyone else feel the vibration of the steering wheel? I don't remember ever having that in my previous car. And of course now that I noticed it I can't stop thinking about it.

This is my second car with electronic steering and no I haven't notice it in either. The Cube's version feels better than the other one.
