Do we think we are seeing an uptick in sales on the Leaf with all of the discounts?
A lease should be strongly considered instead of buying even at these discounted prices.
Nissan has questionable traction battery practices, i.e., they have no firm plans to upgrade or refurbish traction batteries. Their policy appears to be to scrap the car when the battery is depleted or pay more than the car is worth for a new battery.
I had hoped someone would have a solution by now; but, so far to the best of my knowledge, no trustworthy solution is available. There are people working on the problem; and, there is still hope. There are a 1/2 million Nissan Leafs on the roads...that's a large aftermarket.
When are we going to realize that leases allows an entirely new group of people to participate? Zero down, moderate monthly payments, full tax credit... that is not available to everyone but the lease makes it possible with moderate credit.
As far as trustworthy battery replacement options, I won't comment on "trustworthy" but there are over a dozen now that have done 3rd party replacements and are very happy with the results but then again, 3X the range overnight makes "happiness" an easy thing.
FYI; still looking for anyone who has lost a capacity bar 40 kwh and newer. 2 verified over 100K, another certainly over by now but no recent reports.
