My 2011 Leaf has 62,000 miles. Nissan replaced the battery (Nissan Van Nuys, CA) in October, about 3,000 miles ago, under a coupon program. Now the Leaf won't charge; when it's plugged in, I hear the beeps and the first light flashes about twice, then goes off. Nissan Van Nuys's tech says it's the charging plate behind the rear seats -- and will cost $2,300 to replace, because it's not covered by the warranty on the replacement battery. It's not "part" of the battery, but I believe the plate should not fail at 60,000 and require a repair costing half the car's value.
Anybody else dealt with this issue?
