I have a Cube SL that is my daily driver. Bought it during the Cash-For-Clunkers program. I've driven this on a few long trips and is not a bad vehicle. I've had it 2 years and STILL get looks and smiles when people see it. Not too many of them in my area. In fact, since the quake in Japan, there has been a shortage of Cubes. I did see several floating down the river in Japan after the quake.
Still love my MINI better!
