speaking of which; what evidence do you have that Nissan will honor degradation warranty with a used, not "as new" pack?


They have been including language to allow them to do this since the capacity warranty began, and they now have a battery recycling facility starting up, via a partner company. The certainty isn't 100%, but it seems very likely that it will be used.

Ahh, I see. I must have missed the part where they said these refurbished battery packs will be used for warranty replacements.

I don't remember if the word "refurbished" is used, but the language allows them, because there is no promise to restore capacity to 100%.

Well guessing when it happens we will have something else to bitch about. That might be good cause the current topics are getting a bit stale.
