I have a 2012 NV2500 and I ordered an air filter from reading this thread, and I wasnt expecting to find one installed, but I actually had a factory filter installed in mine and it was pretty clean, but I swapped it out anyway as this one was a better one.

Cabin Air Filter - Where?
Posted 13 February 2015 - 12:37 AM
watch out for the little plastic pegs that stick out. I didn't have mine completely lined up and bent them. I was able to bend them back straight but the plastic did turn white as if it tell me that this is your last time bending me before I snap off.

I realize this is a very late addition to this thread, but it made for interesting reading. I figured out how to install my cabin air filters without the benefit of this forum. And it would have helped to know some of the tips found here.
So here's the reason I'm commenting. Someone mentioned all the additional items it would have been "nice to have" as standard. When I was in the process of searching out a replacement van, my former neighbor worked in QA for Nissan. He's the one that told me about the NV. He's also the person that told me the NV passenger (and the smaller NV200) were being developed and marketed extensively in the airport/hotel shuttle and taxi businesses. Obviously the work truck versions were targeted at commercial uses too. The dealer told me that Nissan spent nearly 5 years developing the NV - and that included bringing in a large number of Ford Econoline and Chevy/GMC van owners to find out what those vehicles lacked that should be included in a new van. The center console was installed because most everyone complained about the lack of storage space in the glove box. In fact, our former GMC Savana van didn't even have a glove box! Consumers wanted removable seats, but not in the lengths & weight that the Ford and Chevy/GMC had. Let me tell you, it was a real pain to remove that back seat in the Savana. We really like that the NV has a max of 2 seats coupled. Why no sliding door on the drivers side? Because the hotel/airport people said they wouldn't use it. I could go on with other examples that were told to me - but you get the point. It was user feedback that dictated a lot of what ended up in the NV - along with the cost/benefit stuff. I only wish I'd been one of those asked for input.
