I recently bought a used 13 SV and love it! 2G service here in Indianapolis stopped on 1/3, so I dropped by one of our local Nissan dealers today (Ed Martin) to inquire about the 3G TCU upgrade. The Service Rep was very helpful, took my VIN, but insisted that I need to leave the car for "40 page" pre-evaluation before they can order the new TCU. That initial appointment doesn't seem to the norm for most here when getting TCU upgrade.
Is there some internal document or number that I can point the Service Rep to in order to avoid that initial appointment. I'd like to avoid the hassle of leaving the car at the dealer twice when it appears this should be able to be done in one shot once the TCU is preordered (based on the VIN).
Also, anyone in the Indy area already have their TCU upgraded yet? I'm not opposed to going to another dealer who may be more familiar with the process, assuming I can't get my current dealer on the right track.
Sounds like they're trying to charge you extra money for an 'inspection' that isn't needed. The only thing they would maybe need to do is confirm that the TCU you have is actually a 2G TCU, but that should be obvious as it's a 2013 model year leaf.
I had the service done last week, and it was about 1.5 hours and a $200 co-pay. When I made the appointment, I made sure they had or would order a 3G TCU so I wouldn't have to drive the 40 mile round trip again.
I think there are some pdf's of the service sheets in previous pages of this forum thread with a lot of details that the dealers have access to.
