Nissan Leaf problem found

1. Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
2. Is it plugged in?

Our original Leaf died in the garage with some sort of major problem that left it reading zero battery charge and also incapable of charging. Our dealer (the lovely Boulder Nissan) gave us a new car after trying to fix the old one for a week. Yesterday they called back with the results: one of the plastic cable connectors under the dash was only partially connected leading to intermittent problems. Clicking this connector into place resolved everything. I imagine somewhere there is now a technical service bulletin with my name on it.

Anyway I'm happy, my dealer is happy(ish), and Nissan manufacturing has a little egg on it's face. I suppose it is all part of bringing a new car to market.

Kudos to the dealer for calling you back and letting you know. Now, who get's the fixed car? Is it for sale as used??? ;-)

If it was already titled, I doubt the dealer could sell it as new (if that is their desire). If it has not been titled, the best bet would be to make it a demo which they could sell in few months for close to new price.

I agree. The titling process wasn't finished, but I don't see how they could sell it as new. My guess is that since this is essentially a manufacturing problem that the manufacturer failed to fix in a reasonable period of time that Nissan Corporate will make up for the losses. At least I hope they do.

I agree completely and I'm sure Nissan will do the right thing. I was just being cheeky, I mean if Nissan wanted to sell it to me *dirt* cheap then I'd happily pay the shipping costs! ;-)
