Many thanks for posting this Reddit story. It does sound like Nissan will stand by with their early adopters. Well, I can only remain hopeful.
I am currently down 2 bars, and by July 2016, if I don't lose another 2 bars, I won't qualify for the batt warranty.
Rate of loss is slow for me, and I know for certain that I won't lose 2 extra bars within 10 months. Maybe another 2 years more....

He emailed "the entire Nissan Executive team" and suddenly his battery was replaced at no charge. I hope you can get a similar resolution.hobbyguy wrote:Correct. I lost the 4th bar at approx 62,000 and then quickly after that. At least now I know I am at about half battery so I might risk and try to take to work a few times.
Yes Nissan told me that they might be able to do "something " for me and then called me back and gave me ways to conserve the battery, like driving in the slow lane and not using the a/c !!
I should have been a *&^% and wore down the battery before the 60,000 mark, but was not thinking that way and had not read the forum
for some time at that point.
I have not kept any readouts, Nissan of Valencia never had anything they could give me on the car and I was not pushy about it. I have only taken the car in a couple of times and all for very un necessary general maintenance.
I had complete faith and trust in Nissan that they would back up us early adapters. But not so.
