At least they offer free alignment checks, but if they got it wrong the first time, re-doing it on the same equipment probably won't do much good, huh? I should at least take it back and tell them what I'm experiencing.
FWIW, when I put my Defenders on a couple of weeks ago, NTB told me that only Nissan had the calibration data for the Leaf, so it wouldn't do any good for them to check. Now, you can say they were "full of it", but I've bought other tires from this location AND had alignment checks done (for other cars), so I tend to believe them. Don't know why the Leaf is different, but you may want to have Nissan check the alignment (because it sure sounds like you have an issue).
BTW, I'm definitely getting better m/kWh (after a few hundred miles) on my Defenders than you are on the MXV's; still not as good as the Ecopia's but within 10% (and they handle much better).
