Re: Please Report 2018 Leaf Defects Here

Drove my 2018 for a year. The only issue was a steering wheel vibration at 65 mph. Dealer identified a bad tire when they road force balanced uf. Replaced the Michelin tire and vibration was gone.

No other issues at all.

Update: After the dealer inspected and tested the brake pedal it was determined it was normal. It was simply the solenoid sensor that does the e-pedal braking. The sound is generally only audible when the audio system is off, windows closed, and A/C on low. Must not have heard it previously as I usually had music playing at medium level. It was definitely not the lug nuts as they rotated my tires on this same visit.

I actually test drove a PLUS unit on that same visit, and heard the same sound.

Warmer weather did not stop the click. It doesn't seem to affect the operation of the pedal, but the sound gets annoying especially how quiet it is inside. I'll get it examine during a visit to the dealer in a couple months. No other issues observed.
