OK, I'll feed the troll.
I purchased the car and feel I got exactly what I was told: A city commuter car that runs on electricity with a range 70-100mi. The battery technology used is irrelevant as long as it performs (and doesn't blow up or wreck the environment). So there is a incorrect statement right off the start.
Is Nissan a fraud because they used '90's technology? If in fact Nissan did use inferior technology, it's not a fraud but a bad business, as they leave themselves open to other EV manufacturers using better technology and getting their car blown off the road. However none of the other EV's on sale now perform much better than the LEAF. The ones with TMS willl certainly do better in hot climates, but that just means that fewer people should buy Nissan's product. What's happening in Arizona & Texas is about TMS, there is no case for fraud (yet). Business suicide maybe, but not fraud. BTW - A Prius uses 70's battery technology. Are they frauds too?
Or are you saying that Nissan got the US government loans based on lies? Well there might be some basis for that, but I don't see anything on your site that points out how that was done or what specifically is fraudulent. To my knowledge the loans were to enable selling EVs and building them in Tennessee (to put Americans to work). Nissan is selling an EV and putting Americans to work in Tennesee, so no problems there. Now if they close the factories and/or shutdown the LEAF in two years, well then there maybe there is a case for something fraudulent.
The whole "these people are reading my blog, so clearly there are some facts to it" doesn't help. Nor does "I've been persecuted". The accusations of gender bias aren't fraud, that's labor violations. So it sounds like maybe you're getting charged for false accusations. Nor does trying to associate your cause with Solyndra or other supposedly fraudulent companies help, again bad business is not necessarily fraud (but is definitely people making the wrong decisions).
Fraud is a strong word and grounds for libel if it can't be proven. Use your blog (and not this forum!
) to cite some facts and make a real case. Right now the site reads like the repeated ramblings of a paranoid lunatic.
