Re: Early Adopter Mistake - Running on Empty

I filed my first claim at 62,000 miles over a year ago, Feb 2015, direct with Nissan. I filed my second claim direct with Nissan August 2015. I filed with BBB in October 2015 and won in February 2016. I got my new battery in March 2016.

In that year I lost 3 more bars in about 10,000 miles driven. I had some major issues with that battery performance but Nissan rejected
two direct claims, even the second one where I offered to split the new battery charges with them!

A quick update. (Details about my case are located in my edited first post.)

Since my battery replacement on September 2015, I'm just over 86,000 miles and I haven't lost a capacity bar.

I'm charging to 100% on the week day's and 80% on the weekend's.

Another update. I am now over 100,000 miles and I STILL have 12 Capacity Bar's. The replacement battery is working great! I'm still charging 100% during the week and 80% on the weekend.

if all 100k of those mile's (pay attention to how us 'Murican's form plural's) were racked up on the replacement battery, that would be very good service indeed. Digging back through the prior post's, it seems the OP's replacement had about a 62kmi head start. Not that 38k mile's without losing any bar's is anything to scoff at anyway..

I'm over 30k on the replacement pack since March 2016, 93% SOH, seems like it is an improvement as I was down 1 bar after 33k miles and 21 months on the original pack, and given the dynamics so far I'll likely be over 2 years and 40k miles on the new pack when the bar drops.

This entire post is painful to read. Just because a lot of people do it, does not mean it is correct.

I think he's trying to make a point. None too subtly, but I, too, am pretty tired of misused apostrophes in plurals, although it's easy to slip up and do it now and then by mistake (I almost did so in this sentence!). I blame (without evidence) the origin of this problem on the NYT Stylebook, which says you use an apostrophe to form a plural in an acronym. Why? Is HUD's really more plural-looking than HUDs?

Yes, I would hope/assume so as well. Doesn't make it less painful to read!
