GV27: This kind of argument ignores the fact that the bulk of our EV fleet came from second-hand Leafs that other people in other countries bought and we imported as used vehicles. It's not like the choice is black and white "Either help well-heeled people buy new EVs or you'll have a used EV market at all". 

 

Well that fact reinforces my point - the most affordable EV's are those that are trade-ins from well heeled Japanese buyers who were subsidised by the Japanese Govt to buy new. But the quantity and variety is limited to what the Japanese prefer to buy new and later no longer want - not entirely suited to our needs and not necessarily the greatest quality. If you want to increase the volume of supply and the variety of choice of used cars you need to somehow convince others to buy new, eat the depreciation then trade-in.

DjShadow:

Just an FYI incase no one has done this:

 

We popped by Lower Hutt Nissan to get some new Wiper Blades for our 2012 Leaf, the Parts guy said they don't come as rubber only so had to buy the whole clip-on part, 2 blades cost $56

 

Huge difference having good rubber on the screen!

 

 

Indeed.

 

I've been using RainX on my windscreen/windows when I do my regular car wash and I'm trying out their window wash additive. The blades do move a lot smoother with this stuff on. I also use detailer and a clay bar every few cleans to keep the surface smooth. This might help a little bit with drag.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did Cockrams charge for the wiper refills?

Thanks

They were free. They were supposed to replace them predelivery and didn't.
You should be able to get something suitable at Repco or Supercheap.

I ended up buying refill blades for my 2012 leaf from Ali Express.

 

I've bought 2 sets of the replacement ones from Repco (different brands) and neither of them ended up being as good as the cheap blades from Ali Express.

 

They were a lot cheaper too! I think they cost something like $7 to NZ

 

The blades fit in the original wiper assembly - they are the rubber only.

To all Nissan Leaf geeks,

 

I have a question regarding Leaf battery.

 

So, I found out my SOH is 95% from LeafSpy Pro app.

 

I charged my Nissan Leaf to 100%, and got 207 KM range.

 

As soon as I drive, the range is dropping rapidly to 185 KM (actual distance was only 3 KM) then dropping normally as I drive (about equal with the distance I travelled)

 

Is this something that normal? Should I worry about this?

The displayed range is calculated from battery charge but also the way you drive. If you're on the open road you'll see it drop rapidly because driving faster uses more power. If it says 207km at 100% you could maybe expect to actually get 150km-ish at highway speeds.

That first 3 KM was on city though and driving with Eco mode on, and yes, I was using aircon. Do you think that's still a normal?

yep, I believe it's normal.

 

If you switch A/C off, estimated kms will rise back

Yes, that's totally normal for the Leaf. Mine drops about 20% of range shortly after you start driving it.

 

The nick-name for that meter is the GOM - short for Guess-O-Meter.

 

The closer you get to empty, the more accurate it becomes, conversely, the further you are from empty, the less accurate it is. It will also drop when you go up a big long hill (sometimes indicating you are not going to make your destination) but then recovers back to expected readings as you re-gen down the other side.

 

If you reset the range on the infotainment system you can cause some interesting indications there too - Playing with it in crawling peak hour traffic I've had my 24Kw say that the range to empty is 244km, which might be true provided you kept driving at 5kph.

I'm having issue where our 2013 24X Leaf will beep quickly 3 times along with the 3 Blue LED flashing continuously, does this when i plug in the EVSE charger and stops when i unplug it. 

 

When functioning normally I think it normally gives a quick 2 beeps and then nothing.  

 

Is this my EVSE or a sensor latch that isn't working properly or something else. 

 

It works fine most days and other days will take several attempts to get the normal 2 beeps. 

 

Any help appreciated.
