Nissan Leaf Arizona Battery Problem Thickens
According to greencarreports.com, though, the problem is no longer isolated to the ‘warm’ state of Arizona, as a Texan Nissan Leaf owner is also reporting the disappearance of the first battery bar - this means that it is, in fact, the warm climate which is putting the Leaf’s battery pack under added pressure. Some owners from Arizona have even said that they have already lost the second bar as well, however, this information cannot be verified, yet. If it is true, though, Nissan had better start pondering for a solution to this problem, which is bound to be faced by owners who will operate their Leafs in warm climates around the world, not just in the US - so it may become a ‘global thing’, which would be catastrophic for Nissan’s credibility as an EV maker.

Nissan is destroying itself!
Where is this information from? I am one of the texas owners reporting this...Nissan has so far not even acknowledged the problem
The Leaf is a great car, but I recommend you lease, not buy one if you live in a place where the temps regularly break 100.
I wonder where the author got this information as there is no credible evidence (or even rumors) anywhere that such is the case. Also, there are now a number of reported cases of battery capacity loss from many more areas and from other states such as California. It would appear that Nissan erred in not providing a TMS for the Leaf as GM did for the Volt..
