We took the leap of faith that they wouldn't have put an eight year warranty on it if they didn't think they had the problems fixed so it would hold up and purchased instead of leased.


Perhaps you should consider contacting Nissan with your question and letting us know what you find out. Just a thought...

I too inferred that given the capacity warranty was lengthened to 8 years/100K miles on the 30 kWh batteries that Nissan was very confident in these batteries and that they should have equal to or better degradation characteristics than the lizard batteries in the model year 2015 cars.

So far, this hasn't been this case.

We're not going to call them with a hypothetical question and expect an answer. We did get the inspection report though, everything is excellent, five stars, complete wonderfulness. Service advisor wasn't concerned. Maybe the degradation will level off now and it'll be at ten bars for the next seven years.
