I have a 2012 Leaf with a bad battery, and have read through this thread with interest. The dealer quoted me $15,507 (inclusive) to replace it. I live in Hawaii, where I expect slightly higher costs, but not this high. Unfortunately there are limited options. I called the two other Nissan dealers on the island. One quoted $10,152 inclusive, the third said $9557 for the part, and then labor, tax, and the adjustment for turning in the old battery. I called Nissan Consumer Affairs, but the person was not able to confirm a price for me, just that she was surprised.
1. Can anyone here either confirm a recent price (as in September, or August) for replacing a 24KWh battery?
2. Does anyone have a good US phone number for Nissan I could call to check on a current price?
3. I read that Nissan was going to offer rebuilt battery packs. Has anyone in the US had that done?
Thank you for any help.
