Model Highlights

Nissan recognized the renewed success of the subcompact market in North America and promptly brought over their Cube for 2009. It's powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine found also in Nissan's other subcompact, the Versa. The engine makes 122 horsepower in the Cube. Two transmissions are available ? a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission.

The Cube stands out from other compact cars because of its distinctive, standout styling. It features an asymmetrical wrap-around rear window on one corner, rounded window frames and a box-like design. Inside, unique Japanese styling cues abound: the dashboard is shaped like a wave, cresting in the center where the stereo controls and the circular climate control pod resides. The most talked-about design element has been the "ripple" ceiling, which provides the illusion of radiating waves from the center dome light.

The Cube features a reclining 60/40-split rear seat as well as 11 cubic feet of cargo room. The rear seat also slides forward and back to make even efficient use of that rear cargo area. Over 50 cubic feet of cargo space is available with the rear seats folded.

The base Cube model starts under $14,000 and includes a CD player with auxiliary audio input jack, 6-way adjustable driver seat, an astounding 11 beverage holders, a trip computer, air conditioning, side curtain air bags, remote keyless entry and anti-lock brakes. The S trim adds $1,700 to the base price, but also an upgraded stereo, premium cloth seats, map lights and a cargo cover. The so-called Ginormous package is available on the S trim, and includes interior accent lighting, a custom grille as well as various interior trim treatments.

The SL trim upgrades the wheels to 16" aluminum, adds automatic headlamps, a premium stereo system and automatic climate control. The Preferred package, a $1,600 list of add-ons, includes push-button ignition, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fog lights, Bluetooth, rear parking sensors, XM satellite radio and a 150-watt Rockford Fosgate subwoofer.

The top of the line Krom edition includes unique aluminum wheels, a roof spoiler, unique body enhancements, special silver & gray cloth seats and various interior accents. Pricing for the Krom edition starts just below $20,000.


Model News

The Nissan Cube is new in the North American market for 2009. The Cube has been a feature in Japan since 2002, where it is now in its third generation.


Value Writeup

The Cube utilizes Nissan's economical 1.8L 4-cylinder engine also used in the Versa. The upright box-like styling also allows for seating for 5 passengers as well as 11 cubic feet of cargo space inside. The Cube's unusual styling is a stylish alternative to other boxy compacts, such as Scion's xB and the new Suzuki SX4.

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING MODEL YEAR 2009-2010 NISSAN CUBE VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM JANUARY 30, 2009 THROUGH JULY 30, 2010. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 301, "FUEL SYSTEM INTEGRITY." WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS ROTATED FOLLOWING A REAR MOVING BARRIER CRASH TEST AS REQUIRED, THE AMOUNT OF FUEL LEAKAGE EXCEEDED THE ALLOWABLE LIMITS.

Consequence
FUEL LEAKAGE, IN THE PRESENCE OF AN IGNITION SOURCE, COULD RESULT IN A FIRE.

DEALERS WILL DEVELOP A SPECIAL PROTECTOR AND ATTACH IT TO THE GASOLINE RECIRCULATION TUBE AT THE LOCATION OF THE FILLER NECK CONNECTOR. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 30, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Summary
NISSAN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2010 VEHICLES ORIGINALLY SOLD IN OR CURRENTLY REGISTERED IN THE STATES OF CONNECTICUT, DELAWARE, IOWA, ILLINOIS, INDIANA, MASSACHUSETTS, MAINE, MARYLAND, MICHIGAN, MINNESOTA, MISSOURI, NEW HAMPSHIRE, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK, OHIO, PENNSYLVANIA, RHODE ISLAND, VERMONT, WASHINGTON D.C., WEST VIRGINIA AND WISCONSIN. THE MATERIAL IN THE NUT USED TO SECURE THE SENSOR-TRANSMITTER OF THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS) MAY CORRODE AND POTENTIALLY CRACK IN AREAS WITH HEAVY CONCENTRATIONS OF ROAD SALT. IF THIS OCCURS, THE NUT MAY COME OUT OF THE SENSOR-TRANSMITTER AND THE TPMS LAMP WILL ILLUMINATE.

Consequence
IF THE TPMS LAMP IS DISREGARDED AND THE VEHICLE CONTINUES TO BE DRIVEN IN THIS CONDITION, THE TIRE WILL QUICKLY LOSE AIR PRESSURE AT A CONSISTENT RATE RESULTING IN A FLAT TIRE INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

THE DEALER WILL REPLACE THE TPMS NUT WITH A NEW, MORE ROBUST NUT. THIS SERVICE WILL BE PERFORMED FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE NOVEMBER 9, 2009. OWNERS MAY CONTACT NISSAN AT 1-800-647-7261 AND INFINITI AT 1-800-662-6200.
