Thanks for the congrats! My lady drives (8 bar car) soon to be 12 bars. Her work and picking up our daughter is only 36-40 miles daily. She is afraid to drive the freeways anyway so the car was still not causing range anxiety. I also had proven to her that it would do 63 miles on surface streets up to 45ish mph because she was beginning to develop range anxiety. Mind you she was not even driving into the red bars. I must admit though, it has been hard to convince her there is a lot of range left in the red bars that she considers danger bars!
I have purposely taken her to show her how to use QC a few times so she could be comfortable with doing so if needed. She has not yet done it on her own. I keep teasing her that I am going to swap cars with her when the new battery is installed. She is profusely against that idea.
Both of our leafs also have QC and a good availability QC chargers in our metro area. I drive the car that had the battery replaced with a lizard almost a year ago. I use QC maybe average 2-3 times a month whenever I need it. Anyway... It looks like the new battery will be delivered around Christmas time with the presents!
