Excellent job, Nissan.
We discussed this point w Nissan, knowing it was a concern here. Unfortunately, like new vehicle pricing, automakers by law can't force a certain labor price for customer-pay service, or even the battery pack itself besides setting an MSRP. But as you noted, we know folks will report their experiences here and elsewhere, and others will choose their dealer accordingly.thankyouOB wrote: -Nissan has done something, but it is certainly not enough, to standardize the install price;
Nissan expects the installation to take about three hours but actual shop time and pricing is at the dealer's discretion.
(we can always shop around.)
I've been lurking here for a long time, watching the battery degradation debacle unfold, and hoping for some sanity to emerge from Nissan so that I may seriously consider their product.RegGuheert wrote:I expected this to be a popular announcement, but this post was a bit of a surprise to me:Welcome, mtndrew1!mtndrew1 wrote:This just moved the Leaf way up on my shopping list for when my Volt lease expires early next year.
Excellent job, Nissan.
As an (ex) advisory board member, I would like to thank Brian and the rest of the team at Nissan for listening carefully to the feedback and for putting together this terrific program! (I even see some response in your message to feedback in our call last week!) I also expect there are probably many thousands of details that had to be addressed to make this all happen which the advisory board never saw, but that effort is also appreciated.
I am hopeful that this option, (or an improved one) is available when I get around to needing a new battery for our LEAF as Ed said: "around 2020".

Sorry to hear that!! Well since you are now wiling to consider a LEAF I can share my experiences with you. The worst fault I've had is a faulty electric window master switch, which my extended warranty covered. Had a speaker replaced early on under factory warranty. That's pretty much it.mtndrew1 wrote:My Volt has been extremely problematic but GM's support at the corporate and dealer levels has been beyond outstanding, so this is important to me.
