Shrink; i have not read the 4 pages of posts but your post has really made my day.
your premise started out as how disappointing the Leaf was but then you bought another one anyway. i dont think that even Nissan could have done a better job of illustrating just how much the "EV driving" factor plays into the ownership picture.
and i also am in the camp that capacity loss is not linear. i drove a Zenn which is completely different. it used lead acid batts which lose about 5-10% capacity right away, then the loss slows down a lot.
now, i figured my Leaf would lose 5-10% which in the first 10-15,000 miles or a year or so then taper off to 1-2 % a year making about 20% after 5 years, 75,000 miles right??.
well, i havent lost anything yet so Nissan has greatly outperformed my fondest expectations.
now, i also think that Nissan knew about AZ temp issues and was banking on it not being a major owner issue until the TN batt plant was able to pump out spare packs.
so, ya i think Nissan will do the right thing
