Recall notice July 2019
REASON FOR SERVICE CAMPAIGN
“Due to a manufacturing issue, which has since been corrected, certain LEAF vehicle ‘s lithium-ion battery bonding plates may not meet Nissan internal standards for corrosion resistance. The plates may corrode and in areas where road salt is extensively used, could break. In rare cases during vehicle servicing, if both plates break, the battery cover plate is removed and the vehicle is left in READY mode, a technician could be exposed to electric shock if all EV servicing safety instructions are not followed. Although no such incidents have been reported to Nissan, this voluntary service campaign is being conducted as a preventative measure out of an abundance of caution.”
WHAT NISSAN WILL DO
“To assure your continued satisfaction and confidence in your vehicle, Nissan Certified LEAF dealers will replace the lithium-ion battery bonding plates and mounting bolts at no charge to you for parts and labour. The service could take up to one and half (1.5) hours to complete, but your dealer may require your vehicle for a longer period of time based upon their work schedule."
My appointment is July 31st.
Did anyone else receive this? Perhaps this is only for Canadian LEAF owners? We do use a lot of salt in the Winter on our roads and highways in Ontario.
