Uh, no. There's no "cheating the odds" happening here. The car is warranted in a certain way, as long as the driver doesn't engage in fraud, it should be covered. Having parts repaired under warranty, when no fraud is involved, is absolutely not "getting something for nothing". It's "getting what you paid for".
If the warranty didn't transfer to people who are looking to take advantage of it, the resale value of a 4+ year old leaf would approach zero dollars. If the Leaf battery weren't so ridiculously fragile despite being priced like a nice new car, it wouldn't be an issue.
