Re: 12v battery replacement recommendations?

Yes, stock OEM 12V batteries fail early in the heat. That is why I replace them with high-quality AGM batteries as soon as they get weak. I have experience with flooded cell batteries (both OEM and replacements before AGM was readily available) failing after 6 months to 18 months even with frequent...

Re: Nissan Supplied EVSE Warranty

Mine from my 2019 Leaf just died too. But I don't have my Leaf anymore. I wonder if it's repairable?

According to the IRS, it's in play already:

Re: Nissan Ariya to be announced for the JDM July 15, 2020

If I had to make a decision today I would pass on the Ariya and buy another Model Y with MSRP below $55k so I could get the tax credit which would make the cost $47,500. Nissan needs to price the Ariya low $40's to compete. It looks like they classified the 5 seat MY an SUV now so the limit is now ...

Re: Padding MSRP With Accessories

Thanks Sagebrush, so as I took delivery in early November and everything about my vehicle was Japan, it sounds like I'm SOL When did you sign a contract ? I ordered more than 2 years prior but the signing of the actual contract wasn't done until we picked it up in November and wrote the check less ...

Re: Padding MSRP With Accessories

Yes it sucked we missed out on the $7500 Why did that happen ? When Biden signed the IRA on 8/16, it made all plug ins not built in North America ineligible for the tax credit. A lot of cars are ineligible now: Kia, Hyundai, Toyota, VW built overseas, Ariya, etc. Starting next year, the tax credit ...

Re: Padding MSRP With Accessories

Don't know about a new Leaf but my recently delivered RAV4 prime included over a thousand dollars of manufacture-installed options I didn't ask for nor want. Things like sill plate guards, hatch guards, nice weather-tech like floor mats, etc. As they were manufacture-installed they were on the Monr...

Re: Volkswagen ID.4 CUV

So I'm left not knowing what I can do - there just isn't anything except a Bolt (she is a hard NO on bolt) to buy within my price range, that my wife will agree with. She BARELY agreed on the ID4. I still love the Ioniq 5, but dealers around me are STILL marking them well above MSRP, and no tax cre...
