When I switched from 36 month lease to another 60 months purchase, the only pamphlet I got was for the Platinum level used car coverage, which specifically excludes "Hybrid/High voltage/Lithium battery pack. So the actual warranty on the traction battery must be somewhere else. I kept asking t the dealership for copy of my coverage but never got one. I wonder if I can get something directly from Nissan headquarters?

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

cwerdna Thanks for the link. Sorry that you had to go to the trouble of finding what I should have found myself. I found the owner's manual, but somehow missed the separate document covering the warranty. Probably at the time I didn't think they would split it into two separate documents and stopped looking after I found the owner's manual.

rosier9 My "guess-o-meter" is about 30% off at full charge, dives quickly to part way correct at about 70% charge and then slowly converges with reality as you approach zero charge. No, I did not use that in my calculations, and I was very disappointed that the Nissan dealership did use that to say my battery was fine.

I did all my calculations based on trip odometer miles divided by 1 minus the remaining charge as a fraction, and ran down to 30-35% to minimize the extrapolation. I have only analyzed 3 trips that went down that far and got extrapolated total ranges of 52.46, 55.45, and 62.17 miles (100% to 0%). The guess-o-meter predicted 82 and 77 at 100% charge for the same trips. I don't know why the first run got the anomalous 62 miles. Maybe after driving and analyzing a few more runs the data will either show a spread of ranges between 52 and 62, or that most cluster in the mid 50s and the 62 really is anomalous.
