Im particularly interested in the section that makes the surface flat when the seats are folded:
Hopefully this will be available in the US as its important for me to have a flat surface when the rear seats are folded down, otherwise I will consider the Honda Fit as this folds flat from what I can see.
also, the 'pet carriers' are pretty cool! http://www.nissan.co.jp/OPTIONAL-PARTS/TIIDA/C11/td_062.html
If these little treats wont be available in the US when its released here, does anyone know if its possible to purchase from Japan and have them shipped?
I am an avid biker and would like to know if this is a possibility.
I have an answer for two of these.
The pet carrier is a generic thing available through several vendors, I have seen it at my local petsmart before.
As for the bike, Sarris makes a great thing called a Bones (which holds three bikes) or a Bones2 (which holds... two! bikes). The bones is a wishbone shaped thing (meant to go over a spoiler of a sedan/coup/etc) but which works great on hatchbacks. I got mine years ago for my little subaru and I have been able to use it on my subie, my mom's subie forester, and my little Sidekick (which is a covertable/tracker thing and has a half door at the back). This thing doesn't scratch or marr, and it extremely easy to install and remove (there are six straps to place and tighten) and it'll probably be cheaper than the hardware for a hitch mount. I've used my bones to take my bikes from eastern Kentucky all the way to northern Michigan without incident.
As for the cargo thing, that looks so cool!!! I can't see why they wouldn't eventually sell it in the US, and if they don't, you'll be able to get it off eBay as soon as some japanese guy realizes that he can purchase a ton of them and charge us for them. That would probably be cheaper than ordering it direct from a Nissan dist. in Japan.
So, I guess that I ultimately lied: I had solutions for all three...
I've only had this problem once in the three weeks I've owned my Versa.
Do you have a problem with people being able to hear you when you're talking "on your car"? I get a lot of complaints about sounding too far away... When I was looking at the Versa online (this summer) I thought it said the speaker hole was on the steering wheel, but it is actually on the ceiling... I haven't see anybody comment on this...
The chrome trim has double sided tape and you had better get it right the first time! Other than that, it's only a half hour job. Use the 'Slideshow' feature to check it out.

If you use the 'Slideshow' feature, it will enlarge and auto-scroll the photos.
Not sure what you mean..i.e. you don't want photo links on this forum?
Let me know and I will delete it all if that's the problem.

Was a tight fit, but it worked. I'll have to take a picture next time!
I have some ideas on building a riser for the hatch area myself. Maybe even one that folds flat when not in use so i can keep it in the car and pop it up when I need it.
I made two of these boxes so I can cover the whole cargo area when necessary or use just one when two aren't required. For transporting my mulch bins (42x21), two is better. For one bike, one is plenty.
The best part of this open design is that I give up very little storage space in the cargo area. The wood can also be painted to match if aesthetics are important.
Thank you! Stephanie
Has anyone installed a roof rack to their versa? I'm looking into Thule and Yakima racks to carry a luggae carrier, bikes and a kayak.
Thanks for the help! Here's to 30mpg!!
If you want a key that starts the car, you'll have to have the dealer make one for you. However, the price they quoted you sounds like another fob (which is why it's so expensive). Make sure you tell them that you want a mechanical key and not another fob. It's the same key as on Versas without the ikey feature. Different dealers charge different prices. I've heard of prices varying from $50 to over $100. Ask around.
Did you ever find a roof rack for your Versa? I just bought a 2008 Versa SL and haven't been able to find a rack yet.
