We need to get a sense of how the 2018+ Leaf is doing, defect-wise. In order to help us try to ascertain which defects are design issues and which are manufacturing problems, please give the following info for your Leaf if it has a problem:

* Model.

* Build month (found on the driver's side door jamb, on a sticker giving the month and year of manufacture). Country of manufacture if not United States.

* The exact nature of the problem, and whether or not it has been satisfactorily resolved by your dealer or by Nissan. If not, please explain what was tried.

* LeafSpy Pro readings if possible, especially SOH, AH and Hx. These will help to determine if there are battery issues with the 40kwh battery packs similar to or different from the 30kwh packs. We should be seeing a separate 40kwh pack topic soon, although I don't intend to start it.

Thanks! Info like this can be very valuable in the months and even years to come.

2018 SL, the automatic emergency brake warning light kept turning on. Took it into the dealership, and they are waiting on a part. They said it was on back order due to this being a common issue, so I'd be interested to see if anyone else is in the same boat.

It sounded like the forward facing radar (in the front bumper) shorted out due to moisture getting in, but I might not have all of the info yet.

I'll edit this post with any updates, hopefully it won't take too long to get the part...

Thanks for the report. Can you give the build month/year from the driver's door sill sticker?

Not seen this mentioned anywhere else, but I picked up my new Leaf Tekna on Friday and the front driver's side quarterlight (small triangular window at front) is not fitted properly. I noticed a lot more wind noise when driving , then on inspection found I could actually fit touch finger to finger around the side of the window.
Nissan will obviously fix, but I have to wait for Warranty repair and official glazer to make appointment. In the meantime I have tape all round the window on a brand new car...

I can't find a sticker stating month/ year of manufacture (there is a black sticker saying 'e9*2007/46*6537 if that means anything to anyone...)

I experienced the same malfunction warning on my 2018 Nissan Leaf that I got a month ago while driving yesterday. I was going to bring it into the dealer but it went away this afternoon. I have a feeling it will be back. Did the other person experiencing this get it fixed yet ?

I got the *Off yellow symbol on the dash the 2nd day I had the car. It then went away.

2 days later, today, I got a big warning on the dash and now a yellow triangle + the *Off w/ 2 cars symbol.

Really hate the idea of bringing it back to the dealer already.

My car is still waiting on the part...

Thanks for the reply aeroevan! That's crazy that it's been a month and you are STILL waiting on the part!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the malfunction warning doesn't come back!

My cruise control is malfunctioning. I have a feeling it's related to the Forward Emergency Braking issue.

It was working the day after I picked it up then 2 days after that it stopped working when the yellow triangle appeared.

I hear a tiny rattle in the dash already.
