It's funny you say that, as except for road trips, I am finding myself just turning off the screen more and more often.
I don't have NAV so my center screen is off be default. I turn it on long enough to change audio (AM for sports) but that is about it.
My thoughts and experiences mirror yours. The Bolt/LEAF was designed to be an affordable EV entry which means defined abilities in some areas to provide usability in others. I have rarely desired high end features simply because I am cheap...don't want to pay for stuff I don't see value in, etc. But that mostly only applies to cars. I have a 82" Samsung, Pixel 6 Pro, etc...
But the real evaluation is hindsight. If I had to do it all over again, what would I have done? Can't say I would have changed anything other than not being in the way when my 30 kwh was t boned. Keeping that car until the Plus came out is really the only thing that I would have changed despite my getting ALL my money back PLUS $1200.
Interestingly enough, had I kept the 30 kwh until its 3 year lease was ended, it would have been 3 weeks before I swapped my 40 kwh lease for the Plus lease.
As far as service? Well, that is a dealer thing and I have never really equated dealer experiences with the brand itself as they are simply two different businesses with different goals, resources, etc. This is why I drive past 3 Nissan dealerships to have my car serviced. I used to drive past 6 of them but thankfully Aaron changed locations to one 30 miles closer to me.
