My Rental Car: A Nissan Cube

A brand new Nissan Cube greeted me as I stepped off the shuttle bus. I’ll return it later today with less than 300 miles on the odometer.

These little cars, with their wheels pushed out to the corners, are a kick to drive.1 Even with my height, the headroom is incredible and I can see under the rear-view mirror. I hate when the mirror is so low that I can’t see cross traffic at an intersection.

I like the driver’s cup holder to the left of the steering wheel; I can easily put my white mocha in the cup holder before I get in the car.

This car is worthy of a shot in front of the “bed and breakfast.”


  1. Though it’s no 350Z. ;-)

  1. I have wanted to drive one of these creatures… they are a shape that initially did not attract me, but my eyes have been worn down and now I’m intrigued, at least… nice to know it works for you tall folk, too!

    1. I like it! I like the bevel styling around the windows. I’ve gotten used the the asymmetrical rear window treatment. It’s a fun little car.

      And that’s the problem, at least for me. It’s too little. I couldn’t put Jamison’s electric bass and amp in the back without folding down the rear seats, and maybe not even then.
