Driving INSIDE the Box – 2009 Nissan Cube

Nissan Cube

I’ve had a 2009 Nissan cube Krom edition for the past few days but today is the day I put it to the test. I have errands galore that include shopping (which for the record I DETEST), bank, post office….you know, the things that we all have to do every weekend. I’m going to use Twitter to update you on my experiences living with the cube for the next few days. If you aren’t following me on Twitter, do so HERE.

Battle of the Boxes

I remember countless hours spent as a child playing in a box. Yes, a standard-issue cardboard box. If it was raining or too cold outside, my mother would pull out a box from the closet and the fun ensued. To add context to this story, our TV was B&W, there were only three channels and computers and video games were things of the distant future. So if there was nothing suitable on TV and Mother couldn’t send us outside to play (or lock us in the dog pen – true story), we had to entertain ourselves and, gasp(!), we used our imaginations.

Playhouse I’m just going to come out and say it; the Nissan cube is cute. And by “cute” I mean a little cartoonish. And by “cartoonish” I mean, well, “girly”..not that there is anything wrong with that. There have been…

2009 Nissan Cube – First Drive

Nissan Cube

Friday, April 3, 2009 – I am in Miami to drive the new 2009 Nissan Cube for the day. Luckily I’ve spent time in two of the Cube’s key competitors lately: the 2010 Kia Soul and the 2009 Scion xB. It will be interesting to compare the three. So far, the Cube is the most “expressive” and distinctive.

2010 Kia Soul – Preview

2010 Kia Soul

I am at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Miami attending the launch of the 2010 Kia Soul. Designed in the U.S. for the “young and young at heart”, the 2010 Kia Soul is the Korean brand’s answer to Scion’s xB and based on our initial impression, a better looking offering.

Re-Thinking the Box by Joe LaMuraglia Have you ever met someone and immediately disliked them only to become BFFs later on? It was a similar story with me and the new 2008 Scion xB. Like a good looking guy that…
