Why would nissan make a new car with no wheel wells on the back wheels. I see oversprayed pain on my new 2018, and i see bolt holes where a wheel well should mount...but no wheel wells, we type the vin in at the service counter, and it shows not aplicable...why?

I assume that you are referring to the wheel well liners, aka fender liners? The wheel wells are there, I assure you.

That's what I was wondering, but then I noticed the undercoating covering the area that would normally be covered up by a wheel well liner. So I do wonder if Nissan intentionally left it out for cost cutting reasons. The only way to know is look at other 2018's.

I'm guessing that the liner got left out during assembly, it wasn't caught, and it went through the undercoating like that. Then passed the final inspection, still missing the part. What about the other side: the same?

The rear wheel wells in all LEAFs do not have liners, never have had them. Only the front wheel wells have plastic liners.

Thats rediculose on a 40k vehicle...i shouldnt see overspray on the chassis, why would they do that? Any other gen 2 leaf owners have this?
