mavissmith is doing the right thing by reporting this problem to Nissan. Having worked in an auto dealership for several years, I can tell you that all OEM's keep very detailed stats of customer complaint calls. It is just one more way to keep the pressure on Nissan to do right by their customers.mavissmith wrote:mavissmith wrote:
Just lost my first capacity bar. I will report my case on Monday since Nissan Leaf Support is closed for the day.
I'm not sure it really makes any real difference. They close out the case after awhile anyway and it then disappears from their system...
You're probably right, TomT, but I still feel it needs to be reported, documented, and hopefully/ideally resolved for us or perhaps for future generations of EV owners (which may still include us). I'm not ready to throw in the towel just yet. -ms
Funny you should mention that. My tyres are worn down. 25,000 miles and looking to replace all 4 before the end of summer. I believe the all on torque available at rest contributes to faster tire wear on the LEAF or any EV.

You might be a good candidate for the warranty. How many miles?turbo2ltr wrote:Aaaaand, there goes my 3rd bar.
It's not official yet, nor is the price of the battery, but "by spring" we should have the details:turbo2ltr wrote:22.8k
I entered it into the wiki.
I've been "out of the loop" lately. Is there a warranty thread? I thought I read somewhere it didn't cover 2011s.
I thought the warranty kicked in if you lost more than three bars, i.e. they guarantee you will have nine (or more) bars until 5 years/60k. They are only guaranteeing eight bars?TonyWilliams wrote: If your car loses 5 capacity bars, hence triggering what is sometimes referred to as "70%" capacity, but according to the original service manual is 66.25%, then you can get a refurbished battery that will bring you back up above 70%.
