I have LEAFspy, but I didn't get it to satisfy anyone except myself. It is a very valuable tool, allowing you to drive with assurance you will get to your destination or next charging stop. The range meter in the car is too erratic and encourages range anxiety. WHen used correctly LEAFSpy will give you range assurance.trangen1 wrote: But I'm not wasting $10 or $20 for the LeafSpy or Leafspy pro for this Forum and these ungrateful Cynics.
Like I said, I have nothing to prove nor disprove.
I'm not sure these batteries are worth the price: From what I read online; they are removing the batteries from recycled Leaf packs that have already reached 80% usage. Nissan is still under the EV learning curve, way down near the bottom yet. You have to really do your homework when working with Nissan. Often times it's not what they say; but, what they don't say that screws you.rtz wrote:When is Autozone going to start having the $2,850 batteries I read about online?

Call the EV Customer Service line and ask. You have nothing to lose. It is probably better to call now than wait until you are further from warranty expiration date.jdcbomb wrote:Lost my 4th bar today at 44,252 miles. 2013 SL I purchased used back in 2015. It appears the original in service date was 2013 March.
This means I'm technically out of warranty by 6 months. Is it even worth it for me to try to request partial financial assistance for a replacement pack?
Car has been great otherwise and the range loss does not affect my daily use. Weighing between getting a 2018 MY, keeping battery as is, or attempting to get it replaced with some discount. Full price at $6,500 seems like it's not worth it.
I agree that Nissan is screwing LEAF owners but I'd still think about a replacement. $6,500 for another ~ 5 years of use is a lot cheaper than $25,000 for ~ 8 - 10 years.jdcbomb wrote: Full price at $6,500 seems like it's not worth it.
If based on that analysis of annual cost over time indeed the new vehicle is the most expensive. However, if I factor in that I'll only get 30 to 40 miles additional range maximum for $6,500 versus 120 miles additional range for $17,000 more (given I'd be spending the $6,500 anyways), it may seem worth it to buy the new vehicle.SageBrush wrote:I agree that Nissan is screwing LEAF owners but I'd still think about a replacement. $6,500 for another ~ 5 years of use is a lot cheaper than $25,000 for ~ 8 - 10 years.jdcbomb wrote: Full price at $6,500 seems like it's not worth it.
For what it's worth, the 2018 has a lot of very helpful driver display screens, and one of them is a big digital speedometer.GerryAZ wrote:Unfortunately, the instrument panel puts the analog speedometer out of sight behind my right arm and hand in my normal seating position. I much prefer the digital speedometer in the eyebrow so I will be keeping my 2015.
