I'm sorry if I missed something. If you wouldn't mind saying, what did you do to get a new battery (bribes, incriminating photos)? How many bars were you down? Thanks

Azknauer just reported the loss of second capacity bar to me in a PM. Loss was at approx 15 months, 10300 miles. Wiki updated.

PS I guess the loss of capacity bars is "slowing". ;)

Slowing...funny. My GOM just dropped to 76 miles today on 100% charge (it's been 84-86), and the last time I had a precipitous drop like that, it was followed a few days later by a bar loss, so I'll likely be reporting number 2 any day now. Our range is total crap at this point and it makes any weekend trip a nail-biter or it must be meticulously planned to incorporate a charge, or two. Those charges are also stressful, since almost all our charging stations are on ridiculously hot pavement, and the past week has brought back the continuous 7 temp bars. I'm anxiously waiting for Nissan's response, but unless it's satisfactory I will be on board for a class-action suit.

Slowing - huh. Let's see; Nissan took eleven cars to their desert tech center (of the only "5 or 6" potentially problem, but absolutely normal cars). That tells me that there are a WHOLE lot more than we know about here.

Yes, I was surprised to pick up that nugget from Scott's report. While I agree there are a lot more than we know about, there are now 18 reported cases of 2 capacity bar loss, so theoretically the 11 could all be ones we know about. Do I think that is particularly likely? Not really.

It was FREE. This is my second pack that has lost 1 bar each. I was the first with 12,000 miles in 7 months and a lost of 1 bar. They took my car to the test track and send data to Japan. Change pack just to take a look at the pack.

Now 7 month later I have 1 bar missing from the new pack.

I keeped this off board because I was happy they took care of me and no one else had a problem.

Thanks for disclosing the "secret warranty" work performed on your car that Mark Perry claims doesn't exist at Nissan.

Probably less "secret warranty" and more, oh that's odd we didn't expect a pack to have that much loss already, let's see if we can figure out why.... But that would appear to invalidate his comments about them not knowing about such issues previously...

Perfect example why this thread should be closed and the dis ussion taken in a new dire tion. He has actually mentioned his pack replacement about a dozen times in this and other related threads
