True for 2011/12 LEAF models.
However the LEAF's guess-o-meter was improved later models. Even better,
a useful battery-percentage-remaining display option was added.
A good point! Also points out the Leaf weakness of not having OTA
software updates ala Tesla. My Tesla started with a not very useful
fisheye backup camera. After a few months, lines appeared on the
display that marked the car's path. You could then tell exactly what
territory the backing car was going to move over. Also, you used to
have to go the the service center to get new/different tire pressure
sensors programmed. Like when you had a flat and changed wheels. Now,
you press a button on the display and the TPS thing reprograms itself.
There have been hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of such tweaks. No
visits to the dealer required. Nissan tries to get Leaf owners into
dealerships at every opportunity. I've heard of some Leaf owners being
charged for oil changes during such visits.
