OH oh, I heard on my police scanner that a "Black Nissan Leaf" was involved in an accident at the Costco parking lot. Hope all is OK!

Hopefully a parking lot accident doesn't do too much damage. Still a pain though.

How the LEAF going for you? I'm at 19,000 miles, should be at 20k by the 18 month mark at the end of January. Range reduction right now seems to be minimal.

Nissan have announced we should all get a retroactive 70% battery capacity warranty in addition to the regular warranty come the spring. The supplemental warranty will be good for 5 years/60,000 miles

My Leaf is doing well. I commute almost daily to our office about 35 miles round trip. Everything is working fine except that I burned a hole in the driver's seat with a cigarette. Ordered new seat covers and will install them this weekend. Pre-heating in the garage for 30 mins and driving warm to work. So far, not a single problem! I have 9600 miles on it now, going to take it in to Nissan CoolSprings when it hits 10K. No apparent range reduction for me .. I still drive always in the ECO position and plug in everynight when I park in the garage; usually see 110 miles as I start it up and then that falls to about 95 if I don't have any extra stuff turned on like heat, steering wheel, seats, etc. Getting about 60 miles running the heat, seat and steering wheel heater to and from work.

Have a happy New Year!

My Leaf is doing fine after 9800 miles. I did have a brake sensor go bad last month. Brakes acted sporatically & some warning lights came on & stayed on(BRAKE, ABS, VDC, etc.) It took the dealer a couple tries to locate the problem. All is fine now after sensor replacement. My batteries are OK. I charge to 80% since I rarely need more range. I occasionally use QC stations, which are finally working pretty well after a year of (on the BLINK) :lol: . Like Electric Warrior I know where the free public L2 stations are and support those vendors. From what I notice the public charging stations with a fee are collecting dust when they are not ICE'd.

Hi All,
Happy New Year!
Haven't been on here in forever! Hope all is well with everyone's Leafs.
We are moving to Thompsons (Thompson's?-still trying to figure what is correct...) Station at end of February. We sold our house in Greenbrier in 48 hours. Had charger removed at Greenbrier house by a rep from EV Project, they are "holding it" for us and will do re-install at new place when we move. We are depending on public charger at hub's work. Biggest challenge is getting it unplugged in a timely manner. Have somewhere between 14 and 15k miles on Leaf now with no problems. We are renting a house near downtown during our "real estate purgatory" period. Hubs is driving Leaf as DD and loving it. I am driving the...Titan (boo).

Hey Jill, Happy New year to you too!!

Good job that your husband has charging facilities at work :-) As you say unplugging can be inconvenient. I'm sure Blink are loving you guys thanks to all the extra revenue. Did his workplace look into converting the unit to be a free unit? Not sure what the impact/costs are to do that. Several Blink units are free, like at Kohl's.

Hope the new home is all you want from it.

Belated happy new year to all the Nashville area LEAFers!

My LEAF is still going strong. No major issues to report, have only had a few "charge to 9" bars on 80% schedule. Only times this occurred were in the extreme summer heat or recently when it was ~20 F. Even with that, no performance issues. I still get the "I can't believe it's so quiet and smooth" from the guys that carpool or ride to lunch with me.

I hope everyone is doing well. I plan on attending the Nashville Earth Day on April 20th again in Centennial Park. Hope to see some others there!

Good to hear from you again!!

All things being equal I plan to attend the Earth Day celebrations. I see they have 3 Blinks at Centennial Park. Plenty of places for more LEAF'ers to come on by and enjoy the day out sharing the EV experience. Gas should be pushing $4 a gallon by then :-) We should be able to get an interested ear or three.

I haven't had 9 bar 80% charge since September, but I did get plenty in the summer.

Holy Cow. Hendersonville Shopping Center adds 8 more Blinks for a total of 10!!

Me thinks that this might be an ideal location for an EV get together in the not too distant future!! Who's in?

Granted I'm not in Nashville, but at least I'm in middle TN, send me an invite and I'll try to make it.
