The most common problems with used Nissan Cubes include transmission failures and steering column lock malfunctions. The steering column lock malfunctions disable the vehicles. Nissan recalled the 2009 and 2010 Cubes due to excessive fuel leakage after a rear-end collision. Nissan sold the Cube in North America from 2009 until 2014, and exclusively sells the vehicle in Japan, as of 2015.
The Nissan Cube has a 1.8-liter in-line four-cylinder engine with double overhead cams that gets an estimated 25 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The front-wheel drive vehicles have six-speed automatic transmissions and 13.2-gallon fuel tanks. The Nissan Cube includes front and rear head airbags, four-wheel ABS, traction control, an engine immobilizer and emergency braking assist for safety.
The Nissan Cube has eight exterior color options and two interior color options. Exterior features include privacy glass, 15-inch wheels, cargo tie-downs, variable intermittent windshield wipers and an under-body mounted temporary spare tire. All-season tires come standard with the vehicle. Exterior options include a rear roof spoiler, four-piece body-colored splash guard set and a custom grille. Interior features include cloth seats, front bucket seats, reclining rear seats, front reading lights and dual vanity mirrors. Buyers can add the available interior designer package and the interior illumination package to the vehicle.
