Well, how long does it take to type a post or two?

It doesn't have to convey any new breathtaking definitive Nissan policies. Just touch base, show you're listening, maintain a dialogue, maybe ask a few questions....

+1

I'm on the road right now and able to communicate. Being too busy doesn't send the right message that Nissan care, in the absence of any posts we are to assume they don't care that much. They can't allocate someone who is less busy?

This is definitely NOT a priority with Nissan.

I think it is the opposite of a priority for them; rather, something to actually be avoided...

Yep, and at the rate they are addressing it, this will morph into the Rav4ev forum. Or we'll see the "What does your Leaf replace" thread get overshadowed by the "With what did you replace your Leaf" thread.

Unfortunately, so many of the similarly priced EVs are California-only vehicles. Wish these auto manufacturers would show Texas some love!

That's because many of them are just a CARB sham to meet regulatory requirements. They'll build the number they need for compliance and then we'll never see them again. Nissan and Tesla are about the only companies that have demonstrated that they are in to EVs for the long haul...

That's a shame because we'd really be interested in the RAV4 EV if it were here locally.

really is a shame. i got TAylorSF's charge records for the time he used my meter and he is seeing roughly a 10% degradation on just under 57,000 miles which is well within Nissan's 20% after 5 years (or 62,500 miles) which really only means a good TMS would have provided the same results for everyone...
