Software upgrade to improve range

A Nissan dealer in Conyers GA told me that he may be able to improve my range on my 2012 Leaf with a software upgrade and draining the battery to 0% and using a special charging method. The cost would be about $900. Sounds like BS to me. Has anyone else heard of this and has it worked for you? With a winter range of about 48 miles, I will need to do something soon.

Put the $900 down on a Bolt and you are good to go.

I can do it for $450 via remote login.

I read that too, that new Nissans and Bolts will have the ability to do remote software updates just like the Tesla cars.

Yep, I don't think so. Nothing personal.

I am thinking of trading in my Cmax for a Bolt. But I am keeping my Leaf. I love it.

Nothing personal since a LEAF does not have that capability.
