My Leaf is starting to rust on the rocker panel just in front of the rear wheels. Between that, the battery degradation, and the cost of a replacement battery, I've decided that it's not worth fixing. I'll just keep it for my last 16yo kid to learn driving on, then scrap/donate it as it won't be worth anything after 2-3 more years.

Strange, I was just quoted $7500 less a $1000 core deposit on my 24KWH battery pack. And there are several different prices quoted in this thread. I am going to check around. If the prices vary so much, perhaps I can get a better price by shipping it to Atlanta for the new battery pack. At any rate, the $5500 price is gone. Probably for good. Nissan is not helping their sales by screwing over the early adopters. Word will get out. :(
