I realize the dealer has little incentive to care (barring decreased sales of future Leafs when the problem gets around by word-of-mouth), but Nissan has a huge incentive not to be known for crappy battery life! Why don't they have someone in the corporate office who calls the dealers repeatedly and explains this and then reminds them regularly? This would seem like a pretty cheap fix (or, rather, workaround) for at least part of their battery life problem.
May be easy way is for Nissan to enable a setting not to charge the battery above 70% before delivery, rather than training sales staff. During delivery they can flip the switch to enable owner to chage to 100%. Yes charge to any % option need to be there too.
Bourgee how is your battery doing since it looks like it went through a Texas summer on the dealers lot?
I am probably one of those unluky ones. I am already at 98% SOH, 93.5% HX, 78Ahr Capacity at 700miles. I think my battery is not going to do well. At delivery my battery was at 38 miles. I am assuming Dealer had my battery baked at 100% charge in TX summer
