| | Nissan Leaf buyers claim they were misled
Owners of Nissan's new electric Leaf say they were given misleading information about the car before buying it. |
They say charging the Leaf can take three times longer than claimed on Nissan's website.
Others are unhappy that the range on a single charge is not as good as the 235 miles (378km) they were promised.
Nissan admitted that charging times can vary, but denied there was a problem or that any customers were misled.
They said they could charge in 40 to 60 minutes, so I believed them. But it's not true. The advertising is totally misleading."
When Mr Weatherley wrote to Nissan to complain, he was told that rapid charging was only intended for use once in a journey - something many buyers may be unaware of.
