No, indeed. Given the low NMAC residual, I would encourage anyone considering buying a 2018 Leaf to lease one, instead. I for one am going to try to get them to raise the residual enough to make it less painful if I turn the car in.

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

Why not just wait for the 2019 Leaf? Will be so much better and won't have a battery that's total garbage!

Feb update on battery stats. Actually there's been almost no change from Jan apart from dropping the third bar in early Jan. Mileage stands at 39550 mi. 52.81 AH, 246 GID's, 67.70% SOH, 59.15% Hx. I'm now charging the battery at every opportunity and keeping the battery at full charge overnight in hopes of forcing the fourth bar to drop. Doesn't seem to have made any difference though. I'm starting to think that battery degradation is only a function of time and temperature. If true it doesn't bode well owners of 30KWH cars, Everybody is going to have replace their batteries before the warranty expires and some of us are going to do it a couple of times.
