#1178 of 1276 VERSA SL sedan upcoming (?) options
Apr 02, 2009 (1:40 pm)
I'd like to know why Nissan saw fit to eliminate the Sun and Sound package from its options list for the Versa SL sedan. Anyone have an idea? The automaker claims it's due to lack of interest on the consumer's part...that customers just don't seem to want that package with the sedan. I disagree, speaking for myself. A sunroof and high powered audio system with subwoofer would really make the sedan an attractive buy, again speaking for myself.
One other thing: Is there a strong possibility that Nissan will offer traction control/electronic stability control with the Versa for 2010? All of these optional equipment features I've described above would certainly make the SL sedan/5 dr quite a strong contender. It would be a deal maker for yours truly, next model year, for sure!

I don't consider it a bad thing if it is made by Renault. I was just curious. Sometimes it is hard to figure out just who makes what these days. I believe I read somewhere else that the Versa is actually assembled in Mexico.
I have always been partial to "tall cars" and I especially like the look of the sedan.

I like the look of the Versa sedan also. Some have negatively criticized its look, but I disagree.

I noticed there isn't any (obvious) place to tie down the hatch if you want to drive with it partially open, as when transporting something long. Anyone find a way to secure the hatch partway down ? What about driving with the hatch open and unsecured and letting the wind buffet it? Anyone try that yet ???
#1182 of 1276 Alarm Goes Off for the Fun of it

The alarm on my 09 Versa 1.8 S Hatch goes off ( beep, beep, beep) every once in a while, for no apparent reason. It stops by itself before I can get out to the driveway to stop it. Nobody around it, no animals, no wind, etc. Anyone else have this?

Thankyou!! That was it. If I hold down the red and white button for 2 seconds, the beeping starts. Thanks for the answer!!

I've only run into one time when I couldn't close the hatch on something I was transporting. (amazing what I've been able to get inside with the hatch closed)
What I did to tie down the hatch was to anchor the rope where the hatch latches down and then run the ropes around to the outside of the hatch and tie the hatch down. I used some rags/old towels to protect the edges of the hatch doors so the rope couldn't rub the paint, but it worked fine. We were moving several 6 foot long tables and had to transport them about 45 miles, most of it at highway speeds and everything worked out just fine.

Thanks. I checked it out, and yes, it looks workable. Don't know why I didn't see it before !! Thanks.
