Not sure if teething problems is the right term but Nissan Leaf owners have recently been experiencing some minor inconveniences lately.
With Nissan hailing the Leaf as the door opener for battery powered electric cars, the Japanese didn’t take a lot of time issue a recall to address the issue.
Just as before, I’m not sure about my words because a recall isn’t the right term to be used here either.
Nissan will actually reprogram the vehicle control module software in just over 5000 Leaf units, free of charge, of course, in order to do away with the starter issues.
Katherine Zachary, Nissan Americas spokesperson came forward with the information according to which the company she represents will undertake this task in order to address incorrect diagnosis programming of some of the Nissan Leaf units that are already on the road.
The precise number of Nissan Leaf EVs to be reprogrammed stands at 5.300 and these are spread throughout the Japanese, North American and European markets with few other exceptions.
I would like to point out that despite the 500 or so units on the U.S. roads, the NHTSA didn’t get involved with the Nissan Leaf recall as this difficulty has no safety risk.
