I'll stop by Rustom Nissan & tell them about the Plug-In America weekend
coming up.  Perhaps we can help some of the salespeople get enthused and
informed about EV's.  Is there a flyer about the weekend events available
for downloading?
Thank you,
Judith

hi judith. i took my Leaf in for a slow tire leak and found the same to be
true by the Service Mgr.  In fact, he told me that Leafs with Fast Chargers
on them, as mine, won't be guaranteed and that Nissan won't honor the the
Warranty on the batteries if a Leaf has a Fast Charger onboard. He went on
and on about how bad the Fast Charger was for my batteries. It was just all
so negative I couldn't wait to get out of there. Also, I have talked to a
number of sales people, and found the same thing to be true about what you
relayed. It's sad.
