    Just wanted to update: There was evidence of a leak in one of the cells of the battery pack. New reconditioned hybrid battery has been put in and problem has been resolved.

    Was the HV battery, and the install covered under the warranty?

    Thanks for the update, but "new" and "reconditioned" are mutually exclusive. :D

    At least you're back on the road for a while.

    A leaking battery on a pack they just finished working on.
    Oh boy.
    Sounds like this company's customers are in for a wild ride.

    Thanks for the follow-up. Good to have data points on some of these used batteries.
