Hey everyone i have heard from my sources that there are going to be 10 Nissan Cube's at the Scottsdale Pavillions Loop 101 and Indian Bend this Saturday May 2nd from 4:30 to 9:30.

So I think we should get everyone and head down there and check em out.

Who's down?

Also spread the word to any other forums your involved with.

I think you'd be safer on a motorcycle! At least you would fly away from the impact!


Seriously though=
I saw a Smart car at a dealer the other day and there is no crash rating on the window sticker, what does that tell you! Those small cars were designed for europe where ALL the cars are that small. Here in the U.S. bigger is better and battling against an H2 Hummer or any of these SUV's in an intersection your days are numbered!

I remember the day they debuted that thing a couple of years ago in New York. The CEO of Mercedes was talking about the smart car. The reporter asked him about safety and he says, "it has a rigid steel structure surrounding the the car, much like a rollcage in a a nascar," - he basically described every car on the road.

That Nissan probably has NO balls, NO handling, and NOT safe. Bout the only thing its probably good for is a stereo system and fitting in small parking spaces. LAME!

So many haters here...


It's pretty weird that they brought the Nissan Cube into the US. It's been in Japan for years. Also, for all you Smart Car haters...


I'd like to see any other car smash into a cement k rail at 70mph and still be able to open and close the door freely, including your almighty H2 Hummer.

"Reality is, passengers in either vehicle would not have survived." <--(quote from video). . I bet you would survive that wreck in a subaru.

Man you guys really should have come out it was an insane turn out. They had the new Nissan GT-R and the G37 soft top well actually hard top but also there were 3 ZR1's and 4 or so C6 Z06 and many other massive HP cars. Instead of haten soooo much you should have just come out you didnt have to look at the cubes.
