There is a software update available for 2011/12 Nissan Leafs and each UK Leaf owners should have already received or should soon receive a letter from Nissan. This update appears to update the charge and battery management software and may yield a slight range increase and better range estimation.

There is a good report on the update here:

I just returned from the dealership after attempting to have them install P3227 (A.K.A NTB13061). The VCM is now fried. The car doesn't work at all. They said a new VCM will be ordered, and it will take a few days. While I was there talking to the Service Manager about the incident, they fried a second VCM on another Leaf. Both were 2012 model years. If you have a 2012, I recommend that you wait a bit before trying this update. There appears to be issues that need to be resolved.

Ah yes. Thx David. I hadn't paged down that far :)

I think I will have the update done and if they fry my VCM then they will replace it I am sure.

I am booked in for next Wednesday.
