The forum for all aspects of the Nissan Leaf
At 100,000 miles my Prius with regenerative braking had brake pads down by only 30%. That means approximately 250,000 mile life on the pads. I hope that the Leaf (and Prius too) will last much longer that just 250k miles.DeaneG wrote:No longer need:
Brake pad replacements at 30K miles (regenerative braking, pads last life of car)
We had 5 tranny replacements on the same Dodge Caravan. Finally donated that car at 120,000 miles.Herm wrote:The most expensive part to replace lately has been automatic transmissions, and there have been many failures recently.. in cars 3 to 10 year old.
Yeah there definitely might be some irrational exuberance here at MNL. However, my neighbor has a lot of forklifts with 10+ year old engines at his work, different type of motor & work cycle, but I still think you're gonna have to drive for an awful long time before you need to replace the drive components in a LEAF.cpreston wrote:... Do we really think that the Leaf versions of many of these things (e.g. Electric Motor, Reducer instead of Transmission, etc) are never going to need replacing either?
And, of course, at some point we're going to need to replace our batteries, right? The ones they have no idea what they're going to charge us for?
