Re: Annual battery check cost? (yes I know the 1st 2 are free)

I don't have a good answer for you.

I am at 9 bars with just under 70,000 miles and vehicle is on 4th year of ownership, 2016 Leaf SV (30 kWh). Warranty for battery degradation says 8 years, 100,000 miles. I am second owner of vehicle - previous owner was personal lease, I assume annual battery check was done in 2017, 2018 during that 2 year lease.

I recently did my first annual battery check only because I believe I am eligible for a replacement under warranty.

My cost at dealership was $69.95 at Mossy Nissan Kearny Mesa. Although many posters on this thread say not getting battery check won't make me ineligible, I figure this is a reasonable cost as "insurance" against any obstacles Nissan or dealership might throw at me. Plus this is first time I brought my vehicle into any place - plus they did recall fix: P9312 - leaf battery plate NTB19055. Also I received free rental car for the day while they performed recall. ...for science.

LeafSpy Pro says:
AHr 55.3
SOH 69.6%
Hx 37.4%
about 19.5 kWh at full charge
I dropped from 10 to 9 bar 6/2019 at SOH 72%

Thanks for your response. I am needing to get the recall repair as well. Hopefully my local dealership has a reasonable price for the battery check. I am a big proponent of proper maintenance, however a battery check report is seemingly not truly maintenance...

Thanks again,

Mark

My 24 month maint is due 04/10/2020 and the battery plate recall scheduled on same date. Problem is COVID-19. My lungs are already shot and the virus would be the coffin nail. Called Nissan to see if time frame could be extended as I did not want warranty issues. They advised me it did not make any difference if warranty work was done. The maint schedule was purely a recommendation not a warranty requirement. Page 19 of maint guide states"Review of the battery usage report is required as a condition of EV battery warranty." Mixed signals here so I asked for email from Nissan to verify. They just sent me a case number and would not verify anything. Maybe I am just dense, but, can someone clarify what is happening here? :?

Based on existing precedent I wouldn't worry about rescheduling the battery check.

Hi all, I agree there are some mixed signals here. I just made an appointment for the battery plate recall as well and added the battery maintenance check (since I just lost my first batt bar at 48k miles). $80 at my local dealership - I asked for a deal or coupon and was told that was the deal 😳. Dealership wasn’t able to see if previous battery health checks had been performed. I’m the second owner.

I called Nissan EV customer care today to inquire about if not all battery health checks have been performed, if that would affect a future battery replacement. The customer service rep couldn't see the history if any battery checks had been performed, and I joked then why should I bother doing any. The rep I spoke with didn’t seem concerned about whether the checks were done or not. That is he did not state it was any type of requirement. I informed the rep that the warranty booklet stated they had to be done in order to have any future warranty service completed, he replied with a non-answer in return. I got the impression the person I spoke with was not very knowledgeable...

I was emailed a case number with no other details except the number. My plan was to call back another day to speak to another rep to see if I could get better/clearer information.

At this point, I’m willing to pay for one battery health check just out of curiosity to see what it brings. I don’t see myself doing it yearly, especially with the fact that the price will probably go up incrementally. It also seems redundant with LeafSpy.

Has there even been a lot of battery replacements under warranty? My local dealership stated they hadn’t done any.

Thanks all - be safe and stay well!

Mark.

They don't tell you nearly as much as LeafSpy - unless you were wondering if you used your 12 volt accessories more than is typical. If you don't plan to move to Arizona, there likely is little point in spending the money, having gotten 48k miles from the first bar.

Thanks! Meaning b/c AZ is so hot and would kill the battery sooner than CA.’s climate.
