Not just 2009s. One of my 2011s developed this problem as well. I fixed it by stretching the vinyl the best I could and glued it with Gorilla Glue. Did this several years ago and the glue is still keeping it intact. Only problem I had was using the original version of Gorilla Glue which dries white. Shoulda used the clear version as there's a little bit of the dried white glue showing since the glue expands when it dries.

(Re: post #10 )

Nope, It is VINYL which heatshrinks in use from exposure to the sun. Cheaper crap low level cars have been doing it forever, I have chased the issue on more than one Ford car in 40 years and you will see hundreds of all brands doing the same if you tour a scrapyard where the cars sit out in the sun all day.

I have '11 model and within the last year the clearcoat on the paint has begun to peel literally everywhere now, it is helped along by the acid rain we have here. I can say for positive fact that at least on exterior paint Ford does a whoppingly better job of paint quality, it lasts some 50% longer than any Nissan paint I've seen. I have an '00 and '02 Focus both of which have better paint than the '11 Versa does now.

It is what it is. People thinking cars last forever need to park them in garages to sit and if not temperature controlled you will even have trouble there.

Plastic parts breaking is another one. All cars are going to it to lighten them for mileage and I am firmly convinced they are making them to break after a certain lifetime now, you can look at the parts new out of box and predict where they will break now and surprise, later they do just that. The engineers are being turned inward now, the modern ECM made the cars able to go 300K miles plus and that stops new car sales like you never saw. They are now creating 'nuisance' issues that stack up one by one to wear the owner out to then after a few years yearn for that new car even though the other one has plenty of miles left on it, it just has broken this or that. The plastic parts and the shrinking material here and paint quality are all part of that using the engineers to work to use psychological thinking to push cars faster to the graveyards to sell more new ones.

Post #5 seems to be a victim of his own short circuited analysis.

Other than that, molly-coddling people to not want to challenge the thinking if incorrect produces most of the trouble in this country now. The colleges don't even do it now and why so many idiots are coming out of college now. With $100K bills. The mix of safespace and wrong thinking is deadly, getting somebody out of that is usually of a violent nature. Or leave them alone to let the brick walls take care of the foreheads. That way we are nice. Please don't slip in all that blood.

'I have the right to not have my world shaken up at all' is fast becoming a mark of personal insanity.

Guess I got REALLY lucky. Picked up a pristine interior out of a 09 SL sedan. The seats are more comfy than what I got now.

The only drawback is the rear seatback came out of a 09 hatch. That seat is disgusting! Heavy smoker, lots of spills and who knows what else.
Makes one wonder if between smoking, spills, and lack of care, they end up like that.

BTW, the current interior on my Versa is still in very good shape.

Oh well, off to the carwash to brute force clean that janky seatback. My poor little steam cleaner just can't get all the crud out.
