So.... in the FB Nissan Leaf Owners Group someone is reporting the following:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/nissan. ... 834528979/
"Has Nissan offered to buy back anybody else’s 30kwh 2016-2017 due to pack degradation? I’ve been waiting 3 months for a new pack with no ETA but now Nissan corporate is offering to buy it back. I’d rather just get a new pack. My guess is that they are trying to reduce the backlog by taking 30kwh Leafs off the road."
I've not seen of a buyback offer anywhere else before this. Has anyone here?
If they'd offer $17.5K or more (dreaming I know!) I'd have to seriously consider it.
I had to deal with the "buy back" threat from the Nissan Memphis Division (USA) January 2020 when our 25K mile 2016 Leaf SL triggered the battery warranty. Since I started my claim with National Leaf Rep I contacted the same Rep and got my car back with a new 40 kWh battery. I had purchased the car in October 2019 for $13.5K from a Nissan dealership and there was someone in the Memphis Division that eas not happy that I was getting a new $13,000 battery at no cost.
That same month Carlos was quoted saying by 2022 Nissan would be in bankruptcy but pandemic funds lengthen their runway.
In short my 50 years of buying and driving Nissans has been a winner in our case. The 1973 Datsun 1200 was my first new car and the 2023 Tesla Model Y dual motor long range was my second new car in my lifetime. The $47.5K price after rebate sealed the deal over the Ariya. I use Autopilot Autosteer every time I drive it and look forward to the next FSD beta.
After 3 years and 19K new miles the 40 kWh battery pack SOH is at 94% which I consider to be good.
