Re: WSJ -"Why Repairing Your EV Is So Expensive"

I like how they rely on the people doing those expensive repairs to explain why they cost more.

Re: electric vehicles are less reliable than other cars and trucks, Consumer Reports

That's what I was thinking as well. Tesla's dominance of the market means that surveys like this will mainly reflect the good and bad points of Tesla.

Re: How often do you drive without ECO?

Even those who don't need the lighter accelerator pedal usually benefit from the restricted maximum heater draw (5kw IIRC) in colder weather.

Re: 2023 40 kWh Leaf Optimal Charge Level

To the best of my recollection, all of the Leaf trim levels will use an end time only to time a charge if that is all they get. The Gen II models (possibly excepting the S) also let you set a default rule of whether or not to start charging to ensure a full charge regardless of the times entered.

Re: Hello...might become Leaf owner...but need help.

The 2015-2016 24kwh packs, which do not suffer from the same premature degradation as the 30kwh pack, have a 5 year, 60,000 warranty, as do most if not all 24kwh Leafs.

The car was still plugged in when you started it, and it was warning you about that.

Re: The battery replacement/buyback thread.

Anything is possible, but I've never heard of an 8 bar Leaf that stopped charging the 12 volt battery because of the degradation...

Re: 79% charge limit / CarWings / ConnectEV app

There is also the Climate Control Monkey option: train someone in your house to run out to your car on command and turn it on for you. My housemate will do that for me, within reason.

Re: Bits & Pieces

I tried to explain that this is the exception for cases where avoiding physical damage is the situation, not mandated conduit, but trolls on a rampage don't always read so well. Anyway, back in the filter with that one. If he continues with this behavior, let me know. Life is too short, as they say....
