LetsGoToMarsNow wrote:Hi, thank you to everyone for the earlier responses. We decided to buy the car and were able to get a battery replacement at the local dealership under warranty. They just called me saying it is ready to be picked up, is there anything I should ask about? I will verify that 12 capacity bars are showing but I was wondering if there was anything else to look for? The dealership also offered to do the following maintenance for roughly 360 dollars: changing brake fluid, transmission fluid, and the cabin air filter. I am hesitant as the car was driving great before taking it in for the battery change, does anyone have a recommendation?
Congratulations. I had a similar experience earlier this year - saw a '11 Leaf with 8 bars, called the 800 number to confirm the warranty was still valid (not just the miles/years but also whether a prior owner had taken a cash settlement after the battery-capacity lawsuit), and had a brand-new "lizard" traction battery installed. Gory details here
My car drives like new and an '11 Leaf SL has all the features I could want. I'm sure you'll get many happy years from your great bargain purchase!
