you mean on my LEAF now ?
its only about 28,000 . It gets used every day but now we live 7 miles from work. So it does about 3, trips a day at average 14 miles a trip. (42ish miles a day).
Ii has always been in Mild Climates as well.. And its always lived up a big hill to get home.. Here I have to climb a 1000 foot hill to get to the garage. So I get lots of regen on the way into work. All in All its is doing very well .. However I do wish that at its Miles currently the battery woudl be in better shape.. I do believe the fact that it has always lived up a hill forcing the battery to work very hard just at the end of every trip may be a degradation factor.

I have no idea where your sticker came from but it's unlikely it came with a sticker claiming 106 mile range.

See https://www.caranddriver.com/news/2011- ... s-released, for example. It clearly lists 73 miles range on a charge. The 106 and 92 numbers are the useless MPGe numbers, NOT range.

I found another copy at http://forum.roadfly.com/threads/131738 ... ow-Sticker, which confirms the same thing.

Did you grab your image from a 30 kWh ('16 SV, '16 SL, '16 "S 30" or '17) Leaf?


Incorrect !.
IT came from the Window of MY 2011 LEAF. Along with the Dealer Lot Sticker. All LEAFS at the time had that Sticker sold in CA.
And That was part of the EPA doing when trying to devise a Standard. Realize mine was one of the First Lots in the USA. The Very first LEAF was washed off the Dock in the 2011 Tsunami.. So this was the replacement they found for that.

just got off the phone with Nissan/Travis at 877-664-2738

he claims there is no such program and anything I read on the internet isn't factual unless it's posted on Nissan's US website.

He offer me a replacement battery for $6,500 or I could finance it - there is _NO_ prorated out of warranty assistance program.

grrrr - soooo. frustrated right now.

Correct on both counts, although keep in mind the extra cost of installation.

I find it hard to believe the thew's range dropped from 100 miles to 30 miles within a year, that can't be due to degradation alone. Probably should looking at faulty cells, and that's covered by the defective warranty.
