1 day after having the car 1 year I hit 10000 miles. I can't believe I've had the car a whole year. Today I realized I've only washed it once. lol.
I've been charging to 100% every day.
I still have the "old" firmware.
No real problems to report. Though I have been noticing some minor stuff.
One or both of the front brake calipers make a noise the first time you apply them after you change direction (like backing into a driveway). Could be a pad moving around a little. It makes a "tick" sound, but louder. Anyone else have this?
As discussed elsewhere, my front tires are wearing on the outer edge. I probably should rotate them soon.
My steering wheel seems to make more noise than it used to. Just kind of a sliding, or swoosing noise when you turn it. I don't ever remember hearing it up until recently, but now I hear it all the time.
I'm also noticing a slight vibration at higher speeds... like 70+. It feels more like a motor or transaxle vibration (due to the frequency), not a wheel vibration, but I haven't investigated it.
Other than that, it's been a great year with the leaf. Now that I've gone solar, this next year should be even better.
