    Altima Electric v Gas

    Hey all, I bought an Altima last June and I seem to recall the car would stay in electric alot more than it does now. I can barely (1/16 to 1/8") step on the accelerator before the engine fires up. As I am new to the hybrid system, they tell me at the dealership that the car is 'learning' my driving. Personally, I would rather that I learn the car and manage the electric/gas myself (although I'm sure nissan doesn't think that'd be a good idea). Does anyone else have this happening? and is it normal?

    10 months (Last June) seems to be a long time for "'learning' my driving".
    My Toyota dealer told that my Toyota will be "'learning' my driving" for 6 months. This excuse seems strange to me. Why it takes so long to "'learn' my driving"?

    In winter it will operate

    In winter it will operate less in EV mode. Once it warms up, it will be just the same as before. My NAH is getting 10% better mileage now than it did in January and will improve as the weather warms up.

    I had a Nissan Leaf and I experienced almost the same problem as you.From my point of view, I dont't think a car should take them long to "learn" the owners driving.The best alternative would be to donate your car and buy another one.

    I had a similar experience

    I had a similar experience with Nissan Leaf and after five months I've decided to change it.A friend of mine recommended me some <a href=" http://www.gmcconversionvans.com/index.htm/”rel=follow>conversion Vans for sale</a> and after I've seen one of them I knew that it would be the perfect car for me and my family.I have to say that I bought it for some time and it is amazing,both powerfull and confortable.

    I've experienced the same

    I've experienced the same problem with Altima and after five months I gave it to used cars Derry NH and I gave up the idea of electric cars.Now I drive a Skoda and I am very satisfied with it.

    Last month I've attended a course to an international automotive company and I've studied some features related to electric cars. It is right that it takes some months until the car is "learning your driving" but after that, you'll be very satisfied. An electric car is the best choice if you want to save money and it is also eco. Next month will appear some electric camper vans models on the market. I am sure that it will be a success.
