The ac air flow in the back of the van is completely insufficient. The air coming out of the vents is cool, however the flow of air is so light/slow, the passengers in the back cannot feel it. Since the back windows do not open it becomes swelteringly hot. We worry about our children passing out/over heating back there. It? S a safety concern for us, and many others. It does not improve even once the vehicle has been running for a while, and it does not improve even when the vehicle is moving.
The seat belts in the back do not always rewind when pulled all the way out to install child safety seats. So when you pull the belt out all the way to feed it through the safety seat, the belts do not retract. You have to go behind the seat into the mechanism and manually roll the belt back up. This is while the vehicle is parked.
My van was sitting parked at our house when the big window on the left (behind driver) just exploded inward. Glass was everywhere and all in the car seats.
Upon closing the front passenger door while parked in the driveway, the entirety of the side curtain airbags on the passenger side of the vehicle deployed.

Rear a/c has zero flow therefore the back gets exceptionally hot
The rear air conditioning evaporator fan design has no air filter so the evaporator vanes become clogged with dust and debride within a short time causing failure of the system and thousand of dollars in repair bills. On the internet there are hundreds of disatisfied owners but no unified voice to nissan to do a recall on this engineering flaw to repair this obvious defect. We purchased the vehicle in march and had no use of the airconditioner then but when it heated up in denver we realized the rear air conditioner fans were not blowing hard enough to even be felt. On further reading i discovered this is a common problem for this vehicle.
Our nissan nv passenger van (sl model) beeps randomly when running under 10 mph or at a stoplight. The thread and video below show the issue plainly. Http://nissannvforum. Com/topic/330-beep-after-stopping-at-a-stoplight/? Hl=sonar https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=e_zsrcryvwi this is a safety issue because the car beeps randomly and it distracts the driver and makes the purpose of the sonar system (safety) non functional because you never know when there is actually an issue. We have tried to resolve this problem with nissan usa since may but have not received any resolution or dates when the issue may be fixed.
