Have them check the front strut mounts in the motor compartment.

OK, thanks. Any additional ideas as to what to ask them to look at?

Just the tightness of the mounts and lack of play in them.

The headunit in my SL has been locking up playing MP3s. Occasionally it will change screens but perform no function at all, nor will it switch source to AM/FM. Even removing the usb stick and reinserting it will not help. Restarting the car will sometimes temporarily fix the problem.

Also goes into Nissan tomorrow to have the radar replaced, apparently my car was built with a newer revision of the radar unit but I'm getting the odd case of the collision avoidance getting turned off. This seems to only occur after work, where the car has sat charging on 120v for 13hours, if it's <5C. Work is only a few meters above sealevel. It doesn't seem to happen from home in similar conditions, we're about 20-30m above sealevel. I had the cruise control and collision avoidance both completely shut down in a massive down pour.

Hello, first time poster here,

I've looked through this thread and haven't seen anybody mention an issue similar to what I've encountered with my new 2018 Leaf

Leaf SV 2018 built 06/18
Model: FSDAL

I have had this car 5 months, only 5000 km so far. The problem is power failure on start up. This is a sub-second loss of power as I start up, with a momentary recovery, followed by another loss of power, all repeated sometimes 5 or 6 times. It is a very intermittent problem that started about 2 months after I got the car and occurs only once per 1 or 2 weeks, although once it starts it my happen several times that trip. No warning lights before, during or after. No OBD / Leafspy DTCs abnormality are spotted using LeafSpy.

This has happened mostly (but not invariably ) been encountered when I am starting a left turn, at an advanced green.

This ends up with a ’stuttering’ that ends up with a very slow progression through the intersection and a resulting chorus of impatient beeping of drivers behind me. :shock:

I thought maybe the radar is confused by the opposing traffic that I appear to be driving into. But it happens occasionally also at intersections when I'm starting straight and with no opposing traffic.

I drive predominantly with ePedal D-mode but this also has occurred with ePedal off and in B mode.

Once the problem shows during any trip, it can appear when I’m running at normal speed and start accelerating and a single truly momentary power loss blip may happen.

The dealer has detected nothing on their scan and in test drive, and so have no solution for me. Their suggestion- ‘avoid ePedal for a while and see if it recurs’. Well... . It continues to this day. Ideas as to what to do?

It sounds like a loose connection in High Voltage (HV) circuit. It could be anywhere, I would make dealer aware, who knows may be Nissan would want to investigate it deeper and either arrange loaner or just swap the car. I would not drive it this way, just for my own life sake. If dealer is not dumb he would inform headquarter about it immediately.

Do you have the Tech Package? If so is it on or off when the above happens? Cruise on or off? The adaptive cruise control is a PITA in city driving.

Thank you Leaf15 and LeftieBiker for your response.
I do have the package with Propilot / cruise, but I rarely use it and it is off.
Yesterday I had a near stall in the middle of a left turn unto a freeway, followed by a normal 15km drive home. Took Leaf15's advice and took it back to the dealer. Their Leaf man went with me on a test drive and fortunately, 1st left turn the condition was replicated. No warning light on the dash throughout. Driving one of their new Roques now until we have and answer.

Will keep you informed on the findings / results
