I had my 2017 in for the annual battery check (and to sit in a 2019, just for kicks....) yesterday. I didn't mention the recall but the service guy told me about it and ordered the parts. It's interesting they haven't gotten ahead of this but I suppose there's no money in it so why hurry?

This is in Boulder, CO which has to be close to the top of the heap for Leafs-per-capita. It really surprised me that they had to order the parts.
I’m taking in my 2015 on Thursday - hope Boulder Nissan has the parts!

Even after they asked me about an oil change to go with the recall service. 😂

I took my 2016 in for a broken driver's side door handle and they brought this up and just did it.
I do not think I need it in California, but they did it fast.

Since it is a "road salt" issue, it must be a part exposed to water/salt? Thus the bottom of the battery tray?

Heh heh. I wonder how those of us who regularly go thru car washes (including under carriage rinse) twice a week are affected. The car always looks great but maybe it’s decaying from the bottom up. :).

Maybe that's why they told me it would take most of the day...even though It sounds like a 30 minute procedure once the car is up on the lift.

And lutefisk???! Don't tell me you actually eat that stuff. :shock:

Took about 1hr 20m this morning. Easy-peasy.

I've got some lutefisk frozen in the freezer. Working up the courage to have some.

Good luck with the lutefisk. My mom likes the stuff although I can't understand why.

This also reminds me of a guy I know who absolutely loves Durian. He said the first 6 times he tried it he hated it but now he can't get enough. So maybe if it's not your cup of tea off the bat you just have to keep at it :lol:

2018 SL
Brought car in at 7:45, started work at 8:00, completed at 9 am.
They also performed multi point inspection and tire service, so I assume recall takes less than an hour to complete.
Just waiting for car, dealer washes car complimentary.

I got the notice in July and brought the car in for service in September for the recall, state inspection, and annual battery check. All work took approx 2 hours, with multi-point inspection.

The recall replaces a simple plate that connects the battery to the car frame as an extra, extra, extra grounding point.
If I had known specifics ahead of time I would not have bothered.
