Did the Kicks come with an engine cover?

When I popped the hood open to my new Kicks SV, other than noticing how clean it was, it did look a little naked but I saw in the Kicks owners Facebook group one of the owners purchased an engine cover from eBay, similar to this one: https://www.ebay.com/i/254160686552?...BoCqqwQAvD_BwE

Then he went on to say Nissan reimbursed him for the expense, so was our Kicks supposed to come with these covers and some of didn't get any, or is this an aftermarket part of accessory?

My Kia Soul came with one installed on the engine, though not sure what function it provides other than cosmetic, and I would think the engine is better off without it for cooling purposes.

I just find it strange he was reimbursed for it, which makes me think the Kicks should have been shipped with it? Did any of yours come with it?

I don't think any Kicks had them, and that is why the guy on Facebook shared his experience in detail. He gave his steps and the vendor and told how to contact Nissan for the reimbursement. If you feel you must have the cover, that is going to be your route. Just remember to keep it clean under the cover and keep up with the temps. I have a 350Z in addition to the Kicks SR, and I can tell you that Z enthusiasts often remove their engine cover to help with cooling and to give additional room under the hood for other accessories. So, if you feel you need the cover, follow the guy's steps on Facebook. Others have with the same success.
