Re: Update on Nissan LEAF Battery Replacement

I find it absolutely amazing how Nissan treats its customers; they have 450,000 plus EVs on the road , are 10 years into producing EVs and they still have undefined battery policies and prices...that's really poor management.

After proving my OEM battery pack in our 2016 Leaf SL was bad on the 2nd of Jan 2020 it took another month at the division level to decide where they were going to honor the warranty. Prior to this experience I had thought about finding another 2016-2017 for the daughter in college 15 miles away but now have no interest in taking that risk with Nissan.

In the late 90's Nissan was in serious trouble and about to go under and for cash they gave Renault control over Nissan. All restructuring efforts have failed for two decades now they are looking to sell off the the Chinese their factories in England and Spain per on recent report as they work to downsize again world wide.

Nissan was near bankrupt (and had been in decline in the 90s) when Renault bought a controlling stake and installed a Carlos Ghosn who did turn around the company.

To claim that "All restructuring efforts have failed for two decades" is grossly inaccurate.

Ghosn got rid of Nissan's debt and had them making record profits instead. I read https://www.titantalk.com/threads/nissa ... tar.21966/ when it originally was on detnews.com. Look at all the awards he got at https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/paneuro/s ... rlos-ghosn, including being knighted. You think that all happened due to failed restructuring efforts?

However, things started to go downhill once Ghosn relinquished the CEO title to Saikawa (who has been forced out now) and have continued to get worse.
