From the website
OUR LAW FIRM IS INVESTIGATING PROBLEMS WITH THE BATTERY COOLING SYSTEM IN NISSAN LEAF VEHICLES

Our law firm, Initiative Legal Group APC, is investigating claims that 2011-2013 Nissan Leaf vehicles may be experiencing a defect in their battery cooling systems. This defect may cause a permanent loss of battery capacity when the vehicle is driven in hot weather. As a result, the vehicle may lose power more quickly and require more frequent charges.


Umm... WHAT battery cooling system are they referring to?

Not a very good advertisement for this law firm if they can't even get the most basic part right.

Guess they have inside information about the specs on the 2013 model. :lol:

I agree with you there. A sudden [nota bene] acceleration in the rate of loss doesn't fit my understanding of what gradual means.

Yeah... that's one surefire way to lose a class action suit. Sue about something a battery cooling system that doesn't exist.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

There is a fan inside ;) Theoretically the "cooling" system is passive radiation from the pack to the outside air, obviously not effective in this case. Unless it really is a sensor/software interface problem and your packs still have capacity that is simply being locked up somehow.

For some reason I thought there was an internal fan to even out heat distribution. Guess I dreamt that up in my head.
