I recently planned a trip from No. Virginia to Va. Beach, 220 mile trip, using Plug Share and Nissan EV Services, it appeared, ideally, I could fast charge at the mid-point of my trip, the intersection of I95 and I295. Upon checking I found that all DC3 charging stations between Fredericksburg on I95 and East Kent on I64, are inoperative. And, have been for many months and approaching one year for one of them.
The only operational charger on I95 was Leckner Nissan. Pohanka Nissan, Mack-Service Center, Hart Nissan are all inoperative. I called all three and they told me that they have been requesting service from Nissan for months with no success. If you look at I95, it is THE major interstate on the east coast. I295 is a bypass around Richmond, Va. to save people from traveling through Richmond. Nissan customer service claims the charging stations are not Nissan's. However, everyone at the inoperative stations told me Nissan installed them and should service them. The front of the charger at Leckner says "Nissan" in big bold letters and it had a Nissan Corporation tag on the rear.
To complete my journey, I was forced to charge at Leckner Nissan and then at an independent charging station, East Kent, on I64, which meant that I had to charge twice because of the inoperative stations closer to Richmond.
Seems to me, it should be a top-level priority for Nissan to have WORKING fast-charge stations if they intend to sell Leafs. If nothing else, I imagine the two dealers are having a tough time explaining to prospective Leaf buyers they can't even get a fast-charge there at the store.
Nissan Consumer Affairs brushed me off blaming the dealers, even though I told them the dealers had repeatedly requested the stations needed repair,
