Lovely...we bought it from a dealer over an hour away and we've had the car for nearly two years. Oh well, I guess I can give them a call. It's a place to start.alonsorules8 wrote:Matt_a, my versa didn't have one when I took delivery, it is suppose to be in your tool kit. You need to go to your selling dealer and tell them that is was missing when you took delivery and they will order on for you or will have in in stock an give it to you for free.

I need that hook because we are going to be carrying two kayaks on the roof rack and I need to secure a line from the front and back. There is nowhere to connect a hook up front because it's all plastic. If I had that eyebolt it would be the perfect spot. Thanks for the reply!
Sounds like yours was put in as a last minute afterthought. That's certainly not where you would expect to find it. BTW, I did look in the glove box too. No luck.Red Devil wrote:

That seems like BS to me. But who knows.Promise Land wrote:I talked to my dealer today because I was missing mine also. They only come standard on the SL. You have to order it for any other model. P/N 51112 AC700 (Hook-FR Towing).
Okay. Well first of all, we do have an SL so by that logic I should have gotten one. Second of all, that doesn't make sense. It's a safety/utility item. When it's pictured in the owners manual it doesn't say "opitional" or "SL model only". One should be in every Versa.Promise Land wrote:I talked to my dealer today because I was missing mine also.

All that for a tow hook? Wow.Stumpkin wrote:Our 08 "S" Versa did not come with one. It seems that only the "SL" comes with it, as that is what I was told. I agree this is total "B.S.!!”.
I fought for one & won. In the mean time I ordered one and made my complaint for the cost I simply stated that it clearly shows it in the manual NOT AS OPTIONAL EQUIPENT or as IF SO EQUIPED.
I had to go as far as taking a picture of it in the owner’s manual & complain to the State Attorney General. Guess what once I went to the A.G. I was reimbursed for the cost. Really a shame the Dealer, Regional Customer Service Rep. or even the National Office couldn’t have stepped up and made it right. If only the SL gets it then Nissan of North America needs to reflect that in the Owners Manual. Until then fight for it, as its yours.
P.S. if you need my pictures & verbiage just e-mail me.
Thanks for clearing that up. I didn't think it did. Now it makes me think that Nissan realized they forgot to put one in thousands of cars. Instead of going through the expense of making it right, they just add "if so equipped" to the next years' manual. That's like saying, "If you are one of the lucky few who actually got one."kc5f wrote:Nope, the 2007 manual doesn't have the "if so equipped" disclaimer.
