Why the 2009 Nissan cube?

Front seat support & comfort

SEATS ARE COMFY FOR LONG TRIPS. DO NOT BEAT THE HELL OUT OF YOU.

Fuel economy

WE GET 30 MPG AROUND TOWN. GETS UP TO 42 ON HIGHWAY.

Powertrain performance

CVT WORKED WELL AT FIRST. THIS MODEL HAS A 10 YEAR,120K WARRANTY ON CVT DUE TO HESITATION AND OTHER PROBLEMS. AT AROUND 62K HAD A SLIP IN TRANS. THE 1ST TIME WAS AROUND 56K. TOOK CAR TO DEALER. HAD A BAD SOLENOID. DEALER REPLACED WITH NISSAN REMAN CVT. THIS CVT WORKS A LOT BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL ONE. MORE POSITIVE ON PULL OUTS. HOWEVER NEEDS MODS TO SUSPENSION. WOULD IMPROVE HANDLING BY INSTALLING BETTER STRUTS AND SPRINGS. WHEN WE HAD CVT CHANGED DID NOT USE ORIGINAL DEALER. USED A BETTER DEALER WITH BETTER SERVICE DEPT.THEY WERE VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. FAST WORKERS.DONE CORRECTLY.

Handling

AS STATED EARLIER:NEEDS BETTER STRUTS.BETTER SPRINGS WOULD HELP IN IMPROVING RIDE OVER EXPANSION JOINTS.

Quietness

LOT OF ROAD NOISE. TOOK BACK TO DEALER.THEY WANTED ME TO SPRAY SILICONE GREASE ON GASKETS AROUND DOORS. THIS WAS AT DEALER I BOUGHT CAR FROM. LET ME SAY THIS: I USED THIS DEALER FOR RE-CALL ON GAS FILLER TUBE. NEVER WENT BACK THERE FOR SERVICE. THERE SERVICE WAS TERRIBLE.

Why Not the 2009 Nissan cube?

Quietness

LOTS OF ROADS NOISE. NEEDS BETTER SEALING AROUND DOORS.

Conclusion

NEEDS BETTER SUSPENSION FOR BUMPY ROAD CONDITIONS
