With all the car electronics and other subsystems how can a charger be more complex and difficult to maintain? Must be more to this. Whatever is wrong needs to be fixed as it sticks out like a sore thumb to us Leaf owners.
Expertise and repairing cars doesn't automatically mean they know how to can and repair a DC FC. And, they might not have the parts in stock. At least they can probably clean some of the filters on the Nissan-branded DC FCs (viewtopic.php?p=383952#p383952).
At Nissan's own research center in Sunnyvale, CA (http://api.plugshare.com/view/location/13491, we're not talking about a business that Nissan corporate doesn't own: dealerships) their DC FC is sometimes down for weeks at a time. I was physically there on Friday 12/12/14 and saw the out of order sign on it w/the power off.
