Hi everybody,

I am coming from a 2005 Toyota Prius that was totaled in an accident while I was stopped at a traffic light. Purchased the Black 2014 Versa Note S Plus with just under 64,000 miles on it and hopefully plan to keep this one for a long time. Because I am buying this used and donot know the condition of the fluids I plan on changing and replacing them in the upcoming week to include the following:

Engine Oil and Filter
CVT fluid
Coolant
Air Filter

I live in Oak Creek, WI and plan on using Rosen Nissan for the initial service. Anybody in the Milwaukee area that can recommend a service shop or different dealership please pm or leave a message here

Welcome aboard. Wow, a gen 2 prius to a V. I came from a 2010 Insight to a V with a 5 speed. I take it you were not injured too bad if at all? Ive been told hybrids hold up better in accidents due to the weight distribution with the battery in the rear and the extra beef to the frame.

Don't forget the cabin air filter. The older models did not come with one, but one can be installed. Also don't forget to flush the brake fluid. Seems a lot of the cvt tranny have problems. Maybe you can get an extended warranty on your car?

I'll catch the brake system next month, plan on getting a Pioneer AVIC 8201NEX Nav system at the end of the month with a backup camera. Thats why I am changing out the CVT fluid on Monday. My understanding the cabin filter is behind the glove box just like inside the prius. The car hit me from behind and pushed me into the SUV in front of me causing 14K worth of damage to the engine compartment. My prius at 192K was still on original brakes. I thing all cars should have regenerative brakes so the brakes could last that long

The cabin filter is actually located on the front left side of the front passenger foot well (underneath and to the left of the glove box, more like behind the HVAC controls. There is a plastic cover that you need to remove to access the cabin air filter compartment.

There are YouTube videos on how to replace the cabin air filter in a Versa sedan (2012-present) or Versa Note (2014-present); the cabin air filter compartment for these model years is the same as your 2014 Note.
