No, but I believe that opossum was the one that reported being given that figure. Nissan told him he had 85% capacity remaining. His car was one of the 9 bar cars in the test. I am not sure which one. Given that his car tested at either 80% or 82.5% in the range test, and the fact that his Leaf endured another 6 weeks of hot Phoenix summer after Nissan tested it, I would say that the results from the range test agree remarkably well with what Nissan found when testing his car. They certainly didn't tell him that the problem was just "instrument error".Yanquetino wrote:Huh. The best one has lost 14%? Was that "best" car in the test? Which one was it? I wonder who the Nissan rep was who told the owner that...? And I wonder how many miles that Leaf had on its odometer...? Sure sounds like Nissan's left hand (whoever said that) doesn't know what its right hand (Palmer) is saying.
If that quote is indeed accurate, I'll be very curious to see what Nissan says, when it says it. "In the near term." "Very soon."
