Did you report your bar loss on the main capacity loss thread? I think you'd be the first Tucsonian on the list.


Maybe we just complain less than the average Phoenician...

I lost a bar 10 days ago with only 6,881 miles on my Leaf. It was reported. Nissan hotline called, they are looking into a possible buy back of my Leaf.

Nov 9 2014 got my 2015 lease, SL. My third Leaf. Tucson AZ. 5,500 miles, 5.2 long term m/kwh. Let us see if the 'lizard' battery does better than my 2011, which lost a capacity bar at 6,771 miles.

Wow, possible buy back for losing your first bar? That sounds good but, fear a lot more will be in your boat already. Please let us know how they handle the buyback process. We don't need your exact numbers but, just give a sample of how it works out for anyone else already lost 1+ bar and they get a buyback offer.

I am still at 12 bars with 6,200 miles in Texas after 10 months since I bought Chili. She is purring like a cat and not showing any battery/range loss so far, thank God. My concern is when they do a buyback, does it leave you short of your payoff, lease balance or does it wipe the debt clear and you get any down payment money back except for the $7,500 government tax credit.

Thanks and good luck,

Ian B

As I wrote, they are just looking into the possibility of a buy back. I won't be surprised if they contact me and say they can't do it.
I didn't contact them, after I filed with BBB the Leaf hotline called me the next day and asked what I wanted. I said a conversion to a lease, they said they cannot do that. So I said if they buy it back I will then lease a new Leaf. That is when they said they will look into it.
I will be happy to post updates as things develop. That is what this forum is all about.

I was at 16 months, and 13K miles when I lost my bar.
I wasn't expecting a EOL in 4 years when I bought my LEAF.

I've been in touch with Bookmans Bookstores and they plan at least one ChargePoint station at each store. They are already installed at the Grant and Ina stores in Tucson. They will be installing one at the Speedway store before fall.

Here's to many LEAFs cruising the streets of Tucson!!!


Hi -

I am picking up my leased Leaf tomorrow from Jim Click in Tucson. I live in Rio Rico, down by Nogales, but most of my round-trips are short for the Leaf and am retaining my ICEV for the longer trips. Would love to hear from any Tucsonians as to their experiences, EVSE recommendations, etc.

I live northwest and have had my Leaf for 14 months. Last month I lost my first capacity bar. :(
The Kolhs by me has four free Blink charging stations, most of the others now charge. It is my understanding that libraries should not charge, but the Marana library does. So I just use my Blink, which uses the power from my solar panels.

Thanks, I liked the story, I think it was yours, about trying to talk to them about changing over to a lease.

Any recommendations for EVSE?

I have some solar from the Solar Store, 1.6 kW, with 1.1 more being installed.
