They didn't give you a $1000 credit on the old battery?

Here is what I got from the Dealer in Spokane, Wa

Hi Mark,

Well, Nissan sure doesn’t make it easy to research this but I finally figured it out. The 2012 model needs to be upgraded to the newer style so there are a few extra parts that need to be replaced. You’re looking right at $6000 including tax to do this. Let me know if you want to move forward.

Advise the dealer that any EV related part or service in the state of WA is 100% sales tax free. That should drop it to $5500 give or take a few hundred.

Breakdown; Battery cost is $4500 (title should be changed but mods seem to think its valid for some unknown reason)

Parts required for 2011-12's; a few hundred.

Labor; Varies but yours seems to be about $800 which is right in the ballpark seen elsewhere.

Some advice; I think this price offering is limited and will change when the current 24 kwh pack supply is exhausted so if you are thinking about doing this verses other options (like upgrading to a larger pack) then I would get it started ASAP to lock in the price. For what you get, its a good deal imm.

That is exactly what I was thinking. The 24 packs are more or less obsolete. They may be clearing out supplies. I was a little concerned about the manufacture date of the battery I would be getting but I cannot believe it would be over a year old. Our car is in perfect condition and crunching numbers for investing $5500 into a car that nobody wants we could easily get another 10 years out of it. Almost like getting a new car for $5500.
I considered the possibility of having an inverter fail later but from what I can see the motor inverters seem pretty bullet proof.
