On another topic I just did my 4 year battery check up. All 5 stars. (I haven't heard of anyone getting anything but 5). Libertyville Nissan is now getting $60.00 for the service. I lost 1 bar early this year. I have the LeafDD OBD reader and am at 55 ampere-hours capacity andHx is down to 66.4
Phatcat73 wrote:$60 for a battery check is much better than the $100 Arlington Nissan charges. However I'm conflicted if it's even a worthwhile maintenance activity. I'll probably skip # 3 this March.

I have talked to Nissan battery techs and several service writers and they all say that the battery checks, after the first two, are not necessary for the battery capacity replacement warranty. I have also had a battery replaced without the yearly checks done. The Nissan Battery Tech said they do them so the customer can feel good about the condition of their battery.
However, their was an instance where someone on this forum, who was barely out of warranty, filed a claim through the BBB and one of the material (proofs) that needed to be presented, was the annual battery checkup. This appeared to weigh heavy in their favor to win a battery replacement through BBB as their arbitrator.

Yesterday, passed a silver LEAF with IL plate '3637 EL' out in Long Grove area so they've definitely passed the 3,500 level, slowly but surely more and more EV's being registered here; not a 'true' indicator of overall EV volumes as not everyone either opts and even knows about them who buys an EV here (no thanks to some dealers) but glad to see some new owners; perhaps these are re-registered used LEAF's in the secondary market (many are shipped in from auto auctions elsewhere rather than trade-ins') but doesn't matter .. the number is still going up!
