Re: Next Gen LEAF (Gen 3)

So, how do you like existence so far? And are we being visited by one AI with many names, or by many AIs with one name..?

I think it's "Logic buttons suck ass. Mechanical make/break buttons rule."

Re: WSJ -"Why Repairing Your EV Is So Expensive"

I like how they rely on the people doing those expensive repairs to explain why they cost more.

Re: electric vehicles are less reliable than other cars and trucks, Consumer Reports

That's what I was thinking as well. Tesla's dominance of the market means that surveys like this will mainly reflect the good and bad points of Tesla.

Re: How often do you drive without ECO?

Even those who don't need the lighter accelerator pedal usually benefit from the restricted maximum heater draw (5kw IIRC) in colder weather.

Re: 2023 40 kWh Leaf Optimal Charge Level

To the best of my recollection, all of the Leaf trim levels will use an end time only to time a charge if that is all they get. The Gen II models (possibly excepting the S) also let you set a default rule of whether or not to start charging to ensure a full charge regardless of the times entered.

Re: Hello...might become Leaf owner...but need help.

The 2015-2016 24kwh packs, which do not suffer from the same premature degradation as the 30kwh pack, have a 5 year, 60,000 warranty, as do most if not all 24kwh Leafs.

The car was still plugged in when you started it, and it was warning you about that.

Re: The battery replacement/buyback thread.

Anything is possible, but I've never heard of an 8 bar Leaf that stopped charging the 12 volt battery because of the degradation...
