The battery replacement is very expensive at $8K. I would rather buy a used Chevy Spark for $6.5K with a better battery. Anyway, this will be my last Nissan.
I think it's pretty telling that you have had a car for 8 years with basically no maintenance, no issues, etc, and you're unsatisfied to the point that you won't buy another Nissan. This really tells to how foolish it was for Nissan to screw over the early adopters. Even if they'd left the battery replacement at $5500, you'd probably still be "happy".
Once upon a time there was widespread optimism that as time passed Nissan would bless their early adopters with higher capacity battery replacements at $/kWh prices that kept pace with price drops to the manufacturers.
Instead we have disposable, throw away cars. Clearly Nissan could not care less, but I sometimes wonder if they even have a clue just how badly they broke faith with the environmental crowd that got them started.
