Hi. My family got our 2012 Leaf in 2015. It's got 92k miles now, and the battery is showing 7 bars (I've always assumed the battery had been replaced by the time we got the car, but we bought it from a specialty dealer who didn't know for sure).
We live in San Diego, CA. It's nice.
I have no experience working on EVs (though I did guess right on the first try when the 12v battery died and the car needed a jump), and most of my experience with electrical work is in experimenting with solar using cheap or free components. But I've ruined a few batteries, so....
Virtually every bit of experience I have working on motor vehicles is with diesels running waste vegetable oil, but the Leaf has been our daily driver since we got it.
I started looking at this forum because I am thinking about replacing the battery or--more likely--swapping out the cells. I don't anticipate finding a good deal on an upgrade to 30kwh (or more), but it would be cool to get a healthier 24kwh pack. There's a junkyard nearby that lists a battery from a 2013 for what seems like a reasonable price, but I am not ready to go for it right now. Swapping cells seems like a fine enough idea since it wouldn't require any adapters or whatnot (I don't hate adapters, but if something can be done just as well I without buying anything new or sending anything to the landfill, then I prefer it, even if the labor is greater). I don't have any questions here. This is just my introduction.
