You mean kWh? Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not "KW".
No, I meant kW not kWh; those of us who have worked in the electronic industry over many years often shorten acronyms that are commonly used.

BTW, it's not your job to correct people on this forum, don't do it, it's obnoxious and negative by its very nature.
I agree on both points.

My, My, much to do over NOTHING! Seems to me those of us who know everything would be the worse.

When confronted with complaints about the need to water cool their battery packs, their reaction was nil.
For an around town and commuting car, I'd rather have a battery pack with no water close to the cells. The correct answer long term is choice.

Wrong again. The correct answer is a battery that can last the life of the car. If you have a Leaf with a bad battery and are beyond the warranty, you are faced with a repair bill that likely exceeds the value of the car. $12,000 for a 40 KWH battery is a "go away and don't bother me anymore" answer. And to add insult to injury, Nissan won't install a 40 KWH battery in any Leaf that originally had a 24 KWH battery even though it's been proven to work. Don't even ask about a 62 KWH pack.

My Leaf 2014 is closing on 6 years/60k miles with ~87% SOH. I'm reasonably happy with the expected life of the car, and very happy with the low maintenance. And the zero reported battery fires in Nissan Leafs.

You are sure I should not have the chance to buy another Leaf. Ever again. Thanks.

Don't exaggerate. We just don't want you to have the chance to buy a NEW Leaf ever again. ;) Nissan shouldn't be building EVs for the literally one person we know of - you - who has hydrophobia.
