Nope. The car made this commute just fine when new.
Hell, it would actually make it the full round-trip if I was just a little bit careful.
But now, with four bars missing, and soon to drop a fifth, it's barely acceptable as a commuter car.
Not to mention, if powersurge could be bothered to show a little reading comprehension ability, he would see that I'm well beyond the battery capacity warranty. It's right there in my signature.
And, you say "abusing", but I paid for Nissan's "battery check" every single year. They always said that my battery was "5 stars", whatever the hell that means. The report always said that the battery was in great shape, and never mentioned anything about running it down too low. This is just what they expect from their battery technology, and it's a crime.
I'm just hoping this otherwise ok commuter car with the most horrible battery technology in the world can continue to make this commute for a few more months before my Model 3 arrives.
