Re: Update on Nissan LEAF Battery Replacement

The little digital speedo, buried in the dash, is supplanted by the Pro Pilot display when that is used, IIRC. It is not very useful compared to the deleted eyebrow display.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I agree that Nissan is screwing LEAF owners but I'd still think about a replacement. $6,500 for another ~ 5 years of use is a lot cheaper than $25,000 for ~ 8 - 10 years.


Not sure I can agree with that. My 2018 if it degrades at the current rate will still have over 100 miles of range at 100,000 miles. So if buying new (with better tech) There is a 6 year zero interest loan Nissan is offering and could mean a usable range easily extending 10+ years.

Nissan has done several things "not so good" but keeping the price the same while increasing features is definitely one of the things they have done right.

Too many IFs in your argument. I thought about it also and decided to use the NIssan warranty instead, particularly given Nissan's track record of engineering to the warranty. Also, your speculative argument conveniently leaves out the possible (may I say extremely probable ?) class leading technological depreciation.

As for you, remind me again why you lease ? You have already agreed with me by your actions.

Ah you know why I lease and I have another 29 months to change my mind. FWIW; My plan before I got the 2018 was getting a CPO LR T3 but that accident sidetracked that plan a bit... but its still on the board ;)
