I got until June to get that last bar to drop. At 43.35 AHr now. I just hope the weather stays warm until then! :)

Yep, major bummer. What's your plan - do you plan on trying to see if you can work out some sort of good-will negotiation with Nissan or perhaps the BBB arbitration route?

Good luck on getting there. Where are you from?

I'm about done with the Leaf. I'm a year away from retirement and involved in some of the most demanding work I've ever done. Not enough time or energy to fuss with arbitration. Since I'm self-employed, taking any time off for arbitration would be costly, especially since the meeting would probably be held 100 miles from here. Time to cut my losses.

If somebody wants a cheap Leaf, I'd take $4500 for it. Otherwise, I'll donate it to charity once the weather starts to cool off this fall and the car's range becomes less than my commute.

What a bummer, and to miss it by 2 months. I've emailed a friend who might be interested at that price.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I would at least take it in to the dealer to try to make a warranty claim. Of course they'll say no, but just in case you (or a future owner) decides to file with BBB or something later it'd probably be good to have the time of bar loss on record.

170 mile round trip, towing the Leaf on flatbed trailer behind 15 mpg truck, losing a day's pay, in the hope that Nissan might have a change of heart?

Didn't someone report recently that any cars covered by the class action were not candidates for bbb process?
