If this was a new ICE vehicle, it would probably be classified a pending "lemon" by now. :( :o
Well, it is a first generation car. I think we all accepted that going in.

But, despite having an issue only 3 weeks in, I can say that I LOVE this car. Having to drive a loaner around (and stop at the gas station) just confirms how great the LEAF is for my situation.

BTW, Beaverton Nissan has been great about working around my work schedule, getting me a decent loaner, etc. even though I didn't buy from them.

I'm doing good with mine - 1500 issue free miles as of now! I keep looking for faults (or the potential for future faults) but I don't come up with any. ;)

Wait til you charge with that new EVSE job and it sends 300V into your charger and blows the entire thing out. It will probably make the clock 20 minutes fast a week and the airbags inflate when you use a charge timer. That's what I think.

EVDRIVER, do you have any idea how 'straight' a lot of your jokes look to noobs? Learn to use the smiley faces more often, ok? ;)

Actually, I've not seen any "serious" issues - other than this. What else have you seen ?

Yes - probably. But definitely not one "almost every day". I may have seen a total of 3 or 4 one might classify as "serious" at most.

And let's not assume there is a problem with the car- the dead car on the linked discussion could be driver error. Just because my perception was that I was fine, the car computer might say I drove further or faster than I think I did. I am human after all. So no jumping to conclusions. I have one of the first 25 in the US so it is expected that it isn't perfect. I disagree about the ICE comparison. I had the first generation Murano and there were issues as well and no one said to pull it from the market. It is just expected that things are not 100% out the gate.

I have not read one issue that was not fixed promptly and properly the first time at the dealer.
Lemon law would cover a problem that cannot get fixed after several visits.

Well....maybe I over-reacted in my earlier post by using the word "lemon". So, I beg the forum's forgiveness for that. But, after all, I am just an old, VHS/VCR era semi-senile fart.

What the hell's TOU, Carwings, I-phone, Smartphone, and all that stuff? I just want to get in and DRIVE! :oops:
