Out of curiosity, where were you seeing that 100 miles? Yes yes, Nissan has talked about 100+ miles on the LA4 cycle but the official EPA range rating on the '11 to '12 Leaf was 73 miles.
A 24 kWh Leaf on a new battery will certainly do 100+ miles on a single charge. http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 90#p296190
has achieved 188 miles on a charge. https://www.edmunds.com/nissan/leaf/201 ... r-end.html
achieved 132.0 miles until dead on a charge at 35 mph.
That said, I started a thread long ago viewtopic.php?f=31&t=13264
to post instances of shame were folks were still touting "100 miles" of range on a 24 kWh Leaf, which is NOT a realistic number to tell a typical ICEV driver. I even started this poll where 0 people answered that 100 miles was the "correct" value to tell people: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=11201

(and my reply that followed) was to me an example of some incorrect cultural problems within Nissan. Sounds like those folks within Nissan corporate Japan felt that with the '11 and '12 Leaf, they delivered a "100 mile" vehicle.
The rate of battery degradation was also falsely advertised.
I truly believe that Nissan screwed up their first clients. We would never pay 33K for a vehicle that could only go 40 miles range fully charged after 5 years of use.
Your car is a 4 bar loser. You are calling it quits FAR too early or driving way too fast or driving in other ways or with equipment that is inefficient (e.g. non-low rolling resistance tires, running the heater all the time, low air pressure, etc.). TonyWilliams's range tests result at https://web.archive.org/web/20160113132 ... p?p=228326
has a bar loser Blue494 achieving over 59 miles at 100 km/h (~62 mph).

If you aren't using a tool like Leaf Spy or LeafDD (viewtopic.php?f=44&t=12561
) to read battery gids along w/some their helpful tools, you should. You will be able to run your battery much closer to empty with a lot less anxiety instead of likely calling it quits too early.
Some people wondered why we waited that long? Nissan assured us that we have time till 2019 to replace the battery.
Who is the party in the boldface? A dealer employee (e.g. sales critter, F&I guy, etc.)? I don't think you ever answered my question: Do you have it in WRITING that your extended warranty extends the battery capacity warranty? If so, by how long?
