Sorry to hear about the OP's troubles but...

Yes I agree the warranty should have a prorated period, but it does not. You knew the rules and ignored them.
That was two years ago.... are you still driving a Nissan?
Agree with all of the above.
The thread has an incorrect title. It should read something like "Nissan won't replace my out of warranty battery for free!"
Let this thread and few others similar to it be a cautionary tale. For anyone who may be close to expiration of the 5 year/60K capacity warranty, MAKE SURE you know the original in-service date and when the 5 years is up. Set repeating calendar reminders for yourself (I use Google Calendar) with multiple notification forms (e.g. email + regular notification) so that you get nagged regularly leading up to the end date. Make sure you don't miss it by a single day or mile!
It may be wise to do the same for the 3 year/36K basic warranty and 5 year/60K EV system/powertrain warranty, as a reminder to get anything outstanding addressed before warranty expiration.
I do the above when I know I need to contact a company about canceling something otherwise I'll pay a higher fee for subscription (e.g. SiriusXM radio) and for many other important events/to-do items.
