Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

Charliedog that's great to hear! My 2014 is also at the dealership waiting for a replacement battery pack which should arrive next week. They only approved having it replaced after the 5th time that it was towed to the dealer over the past 16 months. I've posted most of the history in Carbuff's thre...

Re: Delete all the spam

I reported them. Last time I messaged the moderator he responded in a day, hopefully they'll get deleted shortly.

Re: Car will not start

I got my car back on Tuesday after its 3rd dealer visit for the SSN problem. The first time was in January, the longest I've had the car since then was most of the month of June. After driving only the Volt for the past 2 months I really forgot how much more I like driving the FFE. This time the dea...

Re: Purchased a new to me 2012 FFE with 14K Miles

Unfortunately in NC, there are no State or Utilities incentives. Steve It doesn't matter what incentives you have in NC when buying a used FFE from another state. The price you pay should be discounted by whatever incentives the previous owner had when they bought the car. For $13k I would expect t...

Re: Car will not start

Kinshi, I'm still in the same boat as you. I got my car back for 3 days, it rained the 2nd & 3rd day and sure enough, driving through puddles triggered the SSN again. It's now been back at the dealer for a month for its 3rd visit. I haven't heard ANYTHING since it was towed back to them, except some...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Carbuff and I have both had our FFE's sitting at our respective dealer's lots most of the time since January this year, while they've attempted to diagnose them. (His dealer was awesome enough to admit defeat and buy his 2013 back from him, while my 2014 was just towed back this week for its third v...

Re: Quick charge project

Sefs, it's been fascinating watching the progress on your project. It's very inspiring and helps dissuade my tendency to think of the FFE's electronics as a bunch of inscrutable black boxes wired together. I'll bet if you're willing, someone on this forum would happily pay whatever your asking price...

Re: Car will not start

Actually, someone local on craigslist is selling a leaf for fairly cheap. Seems like a shame to let my 30 amp charger go to waste. LOL. No matter how cheap used Leafs are I don't think I'd buy one...the styling is just too, you know, and I'd be constantly worrying about battery fade. I'm very happy...

Re: Car will not start

I called the dealer for an update on my car, which isn't any deep mystery like Carbuff's - I know what's wrong just can't get them to fix it properly. They fiddled around with the HV battery connectors, got the SSN to go away, drove it around a little and are calling it good to go. I asked again if ...

Re: Car will not start

Did *she* say the word "lawyer" with no prompting (or screaming fit) from you? If so that's kind of unbelievable. Before this whole fiasco, I naively thought "under warranty" was sort of like insurance, meaning they'll fix your car back to its original condition reasonably quickly, at no cost to you...
