Although I enjoy the efficiency and the way our 2013 Leaf SL drives, buyer beware.
90% of the public charging stations I've tried in Hawaii do not work with the 2013 Leaf SV and SL.Our Nissan dealer confirmed that the problem is with all or a very significant number of 2013 SV and SL Leafs and that Nissan is apparently making a fix a priority. In addition, the manufacturers of the incompatible chargers (manufactured by, I believe Volta and/or an affiliated company) are also working with Nissan. As a result, I still can't charge at 90% of all public charging stations here in Hawaii. However, I am somewhat reassured that Nissan is fixing the problem.
At the same time, I can't believe this wasn't tested adequately before the product was released. I understand that there are going to be small setbacks with any new technology, but I certainly hope these guys start fixing this problem before they get sued. I love my Leaf, but am really annoyed by this.
So, my suggested "Enhancement / Change Request" is to fix this basic functionality of the car however that's done (software update, hardware upgrade, whatever).
