However, take heart: the caveats have to do with battery DEFECT not degradation; and moreover, Nissan has to prove that your lack of visits caused the defect or made it materially worse -- that is, that Nissan would have been on the hook for a cheaper repair if they had known sooner.

Read what? There was nothing to read until after I got the battery replaced, and precious little even then. As for the notion that Nissan has to prove anything, I'm pretty sure It would be up to me to prove that the battery failure wasn't my fault. After all, I'd be doing the suing.

But I don't think there will be any need to sue anyone. I think Nissan did the best they could by me. I think the battery they gave me is probably a 30 kWh one built with the latest technology cells. That's the most I could have asked for.

Latest technology yes. 30 kwh for a 2013? Nah, don't think its even possible for that upgrade. Easiest way verify is to get LEAFSpyPro app for Android along with an inexpensive OBDII adapter and look for the total Ah capacity. 24kWh battery will come with 66Ah of capacity.

I've put 11,000 miles on my new battery in 9 months. I'm down 3Ah or approaching 5% loss.

I just got my 2011 back from the dealer yesterday. Just over $6000 for the battery replacement. Took 2 days.
Charge last night started me at 108 miles on the GOM. Having lost 4 bars, I was used to 48.
Absolutely pleased. I feel it is better than new - and with only 18,000 on the vehicle, it nearly is.

So you asked for a discount and the apparently denied you anything at all? Hmmm. So your mileage is definitely pretty low. What was your delivery date?

You did not get a 30 kwh pack.

Okay, okay, I only got a 24 kWh pack. The stupendous increase in range confused me. :oops:

I don't blame ya. 8 bars to 12 overnight is a huge leap forward in anyone's book

My deal was 90/10 - covered all parts and labor. Service director was gracious enough to give me a rental. Out the door was $602.
