Is that booklet only for the US? I live in Canada, have 9 capacity bars and the dealer says my warranty was only 5 years. If 8 years is true, I have until September 1, 2019!

EDIT: I just checked the glove box and my warranty booklet says 8 years or 160,000 km. I guess I have to take the booklet in to show them and see what they say.

I just bought it for $8,500 CAD (Super Black 2011 SL with 129,000 km)

The 8 yr/160km warranty is for defects in manufacturing. Battery degradation is not applicable.

Even though the Klee class action lawsuit was for US customers, I'm reasonably sure that countries outside the US also retroactively received a capacity warranty on '11 and '12 Leafs around the same time we got ours in the US. So, it'd probably be 5 years/100K km.

What Sage said in bold is correct.

Thanks so much! Good thing I only commute a 14 km round trip, park in a garage and put less than 10,000 km on the car per year! It should last as long as the Prius!

As I recall, there was also a completely separate agreement the buyer had to sign for the battery, 3 or 4 pages that went into detail about how all batteries age, many variables, etc... This was when I leased in Dec 2011, so long before the battery debacle and lawsuit there was already a rearguard CYA movement in motion within Nissan that foreshadowed the events to come.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Truth is that none of the cars with degraded batteries have a case for a FREE battery. We need to either sell it, or cough up the $$$ to keep using the car for another 8 years.... For $1000/ year, it is not such a bad deal....

I'm going to do it when my number is up...
