The Thule part # TH9006XT is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Nissan Versa Note. The key to using trunk racks like this is to keep the vehicle you install the rack on as clean as possible and to not overload the rack. If you keep the rack and the vehicle clean there won't be any scratches, and if you don't overload the rack there wouldn't be any dents. It also helps to put down a fresh coat of wax on the vehicle's paint as well.

It's also really important to remove the rack when not in use.

I attached an install video for this rack that shows it installed on a similar 2016 Nissan Versa Note as well.

If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review video for this product also. This will allow the bikes to be carried more level and will provide more ground clearance.
