Rallybob9771 after 3 years, still great November 22, 2017 SL
Overall Score
See older review I posted from Sep. 2015. So, now , after 38 months, this car is still great. Still cost about 2 cents/km. to drive. Less if you find some free charging. Also, since this model has the fast DC charging and more fast chargers everyday, you can travel farther with only a little time lost stopping to charge. I am in London, On and travel to Stratford on a regular basis. I also got to Toronto, which is out of the cars normal range. I have the 24 KW/hr battery. the 2016 got a 30 KW/hr battery increasing the range 27%. The 2018 will be much better. Even with this range, I can go to Toronto (about 200 kms.). I simply stop for 10-12 minutes to get my charge up to about 80%+. I stop where the charger is at a Starbucks, use the washroom, get a coffee and off I go. The fast charger in Milton charges 28 cents a minute. Repairs are next to nothing. In the 38 months I have had the car, I have replaced the cabin air filter and all wiper blades. One brake fluid flush and yearly brake cleaning and lube. My wife loves this car and does not want to see it go back to the dealer. With the new 2018 coming next year, Nissan has let me plus other extend the lease period up to a year with 3 months free. This has been perfect for us. We got to keep this car longer until the newer, longer range cars get here, besides the Chevy Bolt EV and the Tesla 3. For most folks, any of these will work as the second car, as most now have 200 kms + range. The Bolt EV is almost 400 kms and the Tesla3 is 500 kms with the larger battery. 2018 should be the year we have been waiting for. More longer range models and more cars coming available that year or soon after. While the nay-sayers will balk at the charging on longer trips, most trips fit within in the range of the cars that are out there now. Forget standing in the rain filling a gas car or waiting for an open pump. I pull into the garage at home, plug in and go inside.

Notification Type:
Compliance Mfr
Issue: Under certain conditions, a software problem could cause the rearview camera image to disappear on the display. Canadian regulations require the rearview image to display while the transmission is in reverse gear. Safety Risk: A rearview camera image that does not display could reduce a driver's ability to see behind the vehicle while backing up. This could increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: Nissan will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealer to update the head unit software.

Notification Type:

Issue: On certain vehicles, the rear view camera system does not return to the default setting when the transmission is shifted to reverse. This could cause a reduction in rear visibility if a driver had previously adjusted the camera display. Canadian regulations require that the rear view image returns to its original setting each time the camera is turned on. Safety Risk: Reduced rear visibility could increase the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the software for the rear view camera.

Manufacturer Recall Number:
PC680
Units Affected:

Notification Type:
Safety TC
Issue: When the car is parked in very cold temperatures for a long time, a relay in the brake system may freeze. If this happens, multiple brake warnings will stay on in the instrument cluster after the car is started. The driver may also notice a hard brake pedal. If the car is driven, this could cause an increase in stopping distance. Safety Risk: An increase in stopping distance could create the risk of a crash. Corrective Actions: The company will mail owners a letter explaining this problem. The letter will describe how the brake warnings work. Drivers should not drive the car if the warnings stay on. Nissan will provide a 4 year/80,000 km warranty extension to repair the problem with relay freezing.

On certain vehicles, the passenger's frontal airbag may not deploy correctly due to an issue in manufacturing. As a result of long-term storage, there could be insufficient compression strength of the coolant within the inflator housing of the passenger's frontal airbag, which may cause the airbag to fail to deploy properly in the event of a crash (where deployment is warranted), which could increase the risk of injury to the front passenger occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger's frontal airbag inflator.

On certain vehicles, the wiring harness connector for the dual stage passenger airbag may not have been manufactured to specification, allowing the connector to become partially disconnected from the airbag. In the event of a crash, this could result in a non-deployment of the second stage of the airbag which could increase the risk of injury to the passenger. Correction: Dealers will inspect for proper connection and replace the passenger airbag module and wiring harness as necessary.

On certain vehicles, a defect in the occupant classification system could allow an adult sitting in the front passenger seat to be classified as a child or an “empty seat”. This would suppress the airbag, which could increase the risk of injury in a crash. Correction: For affected Altima, Maxima, Murano, Rogue and Sentra vehicles, dealers will reprogram the airbag control unit and the occupant classification system control unit. For affected Leaf, NV200, Pathfinder, Q50 and JX35/QX60 vehicles, dealers will replace the occupant classification system electronic control unit.

On certain vehicles, when the vehicle is parked in cold temperatures for a prolonged period of time, the relay inside the electronic brake booster may freeze. This may result in increased brake pedal effort, which could increase stopping distances, potentially resulting in a crash causing injury and/or damage property. Correction: An Electric Vehicle certified dealer will reprogram the electrically-driven Intelligent Brake Control Unit software. Note: If this condition were present, a brake warning lamp would illuminate when the vehicle is first started to alert the operator of the issue.

Certain vehicles may not comply with the requirements of Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 208 - Occupant Protection and CMVSS 305 - Electrolyte Spillage and Electrical Shock Protection. The front member assembly may not have been welded to specification. This may have an effect on crash performance and could result in non-compliance to the standards, which could increase the risk of injury in a crash. Correction: Dealers will inspect vehicles for improper welding. Vehicles found to have been improperly welded will be replaced.

On certain vehicles, the front passenger seat occupant classification system software may incorrectly classify the passenger seat as empty, when it is occupied by an adult. If this occurs, the passenger airbag would be deactivated without the illumination of the airbag warning lamp. Failure of the passenger airbag to deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will reprogram the occupant classification system.
