Especially since a lot of problems seems to spring up around taking the car to the dealer for the battery check up. I really don't even see the point in taking it in for the battery check at this point. They said if you don't it voids the battery "warranty." However there really is no battery warranty. So I am really beginning to consider not taking my car in.
I would expect Nissan to sign people they settle with to a NDA. It is a ton cheaper to settle with owners on an individual basis without publicly admitting anything, and hoping that the vast majority do nothing about it. Than to admit publicly that they will replace your battery, give you a 2013 Leaf cheap, etc cause everyone will want in. Unfortunately it would seem to me that is the road they are taking anyway. Interestingly enough I got my survey yesterday about my Leaf asking about quality, the battery, and so on. Made sure to put in there about the liquid cooling system, and that I don't believe the way they are handling the Phoenix situation is very proper. Doubt it will do anything, but hopefully they realize we are taking notice. Even checked the box that I will not buy another Nissan based on my current experience and their actions so far.
Thanks for your support! Hope it will mean something to the fine people over at Nissan.
Please go get your battery check. You never know what will come up. I just got mine last week and got 4 and 5stars on everything (with 10 capacity bars left after 13.5k miles). Nothing seems to be different with the car since the test. After the test, I asked the dealer what losing 2 bars meant as a percentage. He referred me to EV support. I called them and asked. They said they couldn't help with that. I wasn't happy with the lack of info I received about my battery pack but I was really happy with the neat paper they gave me with all the stars on it. I haven't seen that many starts on a test I've taken part in since the 2nd grade, which is exactly how Nissan is treating Leaf owners right now...
