Better, but you are still missing the point

If you were Joe Average Customer with a degraded battery you submitted to Nissan for assistance and then decided to not take them up on the offer and junk your LEAF instead, would you be here to participate in the survey ?

AFAIK, no one has ever junked a LEAF due to battery capacity loss.

Very unlikely that many ever will.

Even if, for some reason, you decide to never replace the pack, a LEAF will still have significant residual value as a (short-range) NEV for many years, probably decades, until something else expensive-to-fix causes a breakdown and the final trip to the recycle yard.
no condition is permanent

Define "significant."

This might be worth a poll:
How much would you pay for a 5 - 8 year old LEAF in otherwise good condition and an out of warranty battery at 65% of new capacity (Say, ~ 50 miles of range) ?

More to the point, How cheap would that Leaf have to be before you would be willing to buy it and replace the battery at your cost ( say about $6000 for battery and install)?

Agreed. A friend of mine has a 2012 Leaf that missed the cutoff for the battery warranty due to mileage and which just suffered a motor failure (bearing) at 90,000 miles. He is down to about 45% capacity. He decided to just donate the car to charity.

Here's a post where somebody just paid full price. Is this what you were looking for?

maybe. but realize that if he didn't ask for a discount and the dealer did nothing to try to get the price lowered what would he pay? this is not being offered if you did not ask. He was an early adopter with degraded LEAF under 20,000 miles. I suspect he simply did not ask.
