In 2016, the Nissan people i spoke to told me that even if the warranty runs out when it gets to 8 bars, they'll still have an out of warranty program to help me. Now apparently they do not.
Nissan and its dealer have repeatedly lied to me, and i find their conduct absolutely abusive. Fraud is a felony and these people all belong in prison. They are obviously unafraid of any consequences for their criminal conduct.
My car is a 2012 Leaf. I bought it in 2015 with very low miles (now i know why). I just took a closer look at the class action lawsuit covering 2012 leaf cars, and i realize that I am not a member of this class because i don't live in Arizona or California. Don't i have just as much of a claim as the class members, and doesn't this mean that i can still sue them?
Can anyone recommend a lawyer in Pennsylvania who can help me with this?
Nissan has never publicly acknowledged nor given any info about ANY of the values that Leaf Spy can render. Given that, one cannot assert the the SOH value Is the remaining capacity.
The capacity warranty that came about due to the Klee class action lawsuit is by capacity bars. When the Leaf shipped, it had NO capacity warranty at all.
As for "its dealer", in many/most (?) parts of the US, due to state franchise laws, automakers cannot own dealers. Google for tesla franchise laws
As for class action lawsuit, the settlement didn't apply only to CA and AZ only. AFAIK, it applied to all Leaf owners model years 2011 and 2012. I am not a lawyer, but AFAIK, unless you opted out of the settlement, you will have to abide by it, which likely includes not being able to bring about your own litigation on this. Yes, it truly sucks that Nissan stopped their goodwill program where they helped out of capacity warranty folks w/the cost of a new battery.
While I wouldn't recommend an i-Pace... I tend to agree with smkettner. Just move on. Otherwise, you'll want to find a pack in better shape in which you could hook up or swap in all the modules from. See posts by Cor at viewtopic.php?f=51&t=21997
I recently bought a '19 Bolt Premier because I became aware of heavy discounting (viewtopic.php?p=547317#p547317
) even though I'm no fan of GM (family has had 3 GM vehicles before, none were very good in terms of reliability). I'm not pissed at Nissan and am still somewhat of a fan of them (current Leaf is my 4th Nissan and is still down only 1 capacity bar). I just plan to be an EV only household with only 1 vehicle. The 40 kWh Leaf and for the price just doesn't quite meet my needs.
