I wouldn't personally think about paying for the Cold Weather Package in SoCal. I would happily have had them included like they were before though.


That is almost funny. I'll simplify what you said: "I don't use those things therefore I'll take them for free".
"Everybody who actually need those things should pay. Because they actually use them. I don't, therefore, give it for free."


Well, I don't know how to react on that emotionally.

You're mistaken. I did use them but would not pay to use them. I blame Nissan for including it then later taking it away.

It's an economy vehicle. It should only have things that matter.
For example, if it never goes below freezing, vehicle should have only AC and not heat pump.

Especially low end trims. Shaving off few hundred bucks from the base price is a good idea.

That's exactly backwards for many situations. In places where the temps are in the forties (F) for long periods in Winter, a heatpump is of more use than in places where it's usually below 25F.

My 2015 was what you're describing but came with those options. I'm just complaining about them not including them when they have in the past. I wouldn't care if they never included them with the S at all.

- Extra Plastic around the bottom of the center console


Does anyone know if there is a way to remove the plastic housing by the right knee? It does not seem to serve a purpose and restricts movement.

- Arm Rest storage is smaller


I didn't realize how uncomfortable this would be until I sat in one. The little protruding part hits you right in the funny bone if you try to put your arm down on it.
