I’ve almost reached the 14,000-mile club with my 7-year-old LEAF, and the chances of it making 100,000 miles are pretty much zero. It’s 40-mile range is still useful around town. Hoping for Fenix or other 3rd-party to develop a replacement battery, or sometime in the next couple of years to dispose of the vehicle which will be a bit sad for us.

Congratulations on the 100k miles.

I am curious if there are any other 8 year+ owners still hanging around here. I passed my anniversary earlier this month. I have about 76k on the car, and it still has 12 bars on the second battery. I was lucky, and got in during the last month of subsidized replacement by Nissan and paid around $1400 for the replacement battery. I've retired since I first bought the car, so I don't put anywhere near the stress or miles on it that I used to.

This site was invaluable during the early days of the LEAF and continued to be a good source of information for many, many years.

Apologies in advance in case I make any Faux Pas, but this is my first time (ever) making a post.

Bottom Line: I need to distribute an invitation for a survey regarding "ownership experience of older EVs."

Background: I am currently a graduate student who is studying a Marketing Research topic that I am personally passionate about: ownership of older EVs. In order to complete my research project, I need insights from owners (current and former) of older EVs (5 years or older).

Considering how this specific forum is for the 100,000 mile club (an amazing feat BTW), I figured that at least one of you would be able to steer me to the right direction.

If it helps my cause at least a little bit, I am proud owner of a 2011 Nissan Leaf with 41,000+ miles. I still have a ways to go.

Thank you in advance!


Hello again Everyone,

After a whole lot of work and effort, I finally completed my survey regarding ownership of older BEVs.


At this point, I would like to kindly request for your support through two actions:

1) Please take about 10-15 minutes to complete the following survey:

2) If you think it was a meaningful survey, please share the link to as many BEV owners that you know.

[Note: I believe the survey will only stay open until the end of this Sunday (PST))

Thank you all in advance.

Yes @72k miles. I have 11 bars on my second (free) battery; at this point I was 2 bars down on the first battery. Still loving everything else (including the cold A/C).
