Yikes. What do you mean about not being able to fully turn the audio off?

I probably exaggerate out of frustration. Audible notifications from the navigation system come through the speakers even when the entertainment system audio is turned off. The only way to prevent audio from the navigation system (even when no route is programmed) is to go into the menu system and turn off all audible notifications. If I allow notifications, then I am bothered by a warning that I am driving on an unpaved road every time I drive into or out of my neighborhood on the street that was paved before I moved there twenty years ago. Having the audio system turned off and navigation turned off does not prevent these audible notifications.

Ah, got it. I stopped using the Nissan nav system years ago, so I'd be turning the notifications off anyway when I lease a Plus next year.

The audible notifications drove my wife batty. She turned them off, though they don't bother me too much.

The Nav system was never this stupid on my '07 Titan. I get "road with restricted access" every time I drive to the hardware store. But only one the way home, not on the way there.

I think I looked for that specific alert, but couldn't find it. It was a few months back, so my memory of the search may be a bit muddled.

I took my Leaf in for the clunk and I don't know if it's been resolved or not. The dealership's response was that the lug nuts weren't tight enough. The service writer gave me a TSB printout showing that the lug nuts need to be at 83 ft/lbs. That torque setting is exactly what the hard copy owner's manual calls for. I used a torque wrench when mounting my winter wheels and I used the 83 ft/lbs. If the clunk is really gone then A) why wasn't it present on all four wheels, B) I need to calibrate my torque wrench, C) next time I'll just use 90.

UPDATE: I drove on some rough dirt roads at low speed. The clunk is NOT gone.
I took the Leaf in for the third time to try and resolve the clunk when hitting bumps. I thought the dealership was going to take care of it but they ended up not addressing it, saying that a brand new Leaf on the lot does the same thing. I discussed this with the service manager and got nowhere.

To reiterate, my clunk sounds like it is coming from the passenger front suspension. It clunks only on bumps and does it without regard to the position of the steering wheel. The issue is there when the car is going left, straight and right. The sound was there with both my winter and summer sets of wheels/tires/sensors.

The first excuse was that it was the lug nuts. The second excuse was that it was a rock behind the brake rotor shield. Now the excuse is that all Leafs do it.

Mine is doing the same thing but only on a certain left turn. Also mine is more a rub than a clunk. I plan to take it in after my moving dilemma is settled a bit.

I guess we will see how a "dedicated" LEAF tech handles it. I will report back in probably 2 weeks or so
