  • I’ve dropped 2 bars on my 2012 SL I bought used 2 years ago, my first EV. I am hoping it will drop 2 more before October when the Nissan warranty expires, so I may be facing this decision from a different angle. It will be paid off in June, but I am also pondering selling it at a bargain rate to a nephew who needs a second reliable car for his wife. Range is down to 60-70 at this point.
