    Yes, same here. Picked up a 24 kWh Acenta on Saturday. This got Nissan Customer service quite a few brownie points. Looks like the whole TCU block will have to be replaced in order to sort out the issue. It won't be just a simple software update... Will be 3-4 until it's fixed.

    Just spoke to my dealer and got the same "update" that there's no update. The fix is still being worked on, but they don't have a solid ETA on it. However, they are willing to give me a courtesy Leaf until the issue is fixed. Fairly happy with it. I think everyone should be able to get a loaner...

    thanks for the feedback. So, what are my options with the 3.3 kwh Leaf at fast charge stations?

    They didn't even provide me with the quote. Said the Leaf is too new and their underwriter doesn't have a solid policy in place for electric cars?! Pretty much every other insurer cover EVs... Agreed, they are great for ICEs though. Anyway, I've gone with Aviva for the Leaf too and got a decent...

    Wow, thanks very much @sheselectric84 I would certainly find use for them. I have a pending quote with Aviva at the moment, but just waiting for the dealer to confirm the collection date as it's been put on hold due to the ongoing Nissan Connect issues. Got an email update yesterday to say that...

    Not a bad suggestion. However, if I drive the Leaf 95% of the time, doesn't that invalidate the policy?

    Hi guys, Been reading this thread and didn't really see any posts for Leaf being 2nd insurance policy. I'm the main driver on my ICE car with 9+ years of no claim. My missus is listed as a secondary driver with also 9 years of no claim. I'm now shopping for the 2nd policy for my Leaf and I...

    Difficult to say. Perhaps worth trying another dealer near by. They all have their own commission margins and it's purely down to that and how well you can haggle. If you read other people stories here - no one got the same price as the other one. Waiting until the end of the quarter may be a...

    Cheers Jules, Yeah, I think you're right on the PCP deals. There doesn't seem to be any consistency in pricing. It's all down to the sales rep at each dealership. Saw some people getting their older 24 kwh versions for as little as 96 quid a month. Is yours 3.3 or 6.6 kwh?

    On the back of this as well - i got mine for £300 a month for a 2 year PCP with £1800 deposit. 15k annual mileage. Reading various posts, couldn't really understand how good of a deal this is, if someone could advise.. Cheers, Valdas

    Just a quick hello to everyone. Amazed by the amount of knowledge shared in here by everyone. Thanks for sharing! Picking up my 30kwh Tekna next week. Super excited. I'll be mainly using it for commuting to work to Reading from Oxford. 70 mile round trip. Can people share their experiences on...
