I also purchased an extended warranty that covers just about everything but the consumable items. This includes the 24kw battery.If it falls bellow 75%, they replace. Paid just over $2,000 for 9 years of coverage starting today. Thoughts?
I know the battery already has 8 years of coverage, but my wife likes having all the other items like the Navigation, Bose system, electric motor components etc covered.
Wondering what the opinions are of experienced leaf owners.
Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "kw".
kW and kWh are very different metrics. It's the same as confusing gallons with horsepower. Think of kW = horsepower, kWh = gallons.
If one charges at 1 kW (or 1000 watts) for 6 hours, 6 kWh came out of the wall. If it's at 6 kW for 1 hour, it's also 6 kWh. If it's 1 watt for 6000 hours, it's also 6 kWh.
One pays for electricity at home in cents per kWh. There are a few utilities w/residential plans where they not only bill per kWh but also have demand charges, but that's rare and complicates calculations. (Demand charges aren't unusual on many commercial plans.)
What company is providing this warranty? How are they determining 75%? For what period of length are they allegedly providing battery capacity warranty coverage? I've never heard of a verified report of any extended warranty extending the 5 year/60K capacity warranty. (See http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... ed#p513705
You do know what the "battery already has 8 years of coverage" actually covers, right?
