Nissan works to fix Leaf start-up glitchMon, 11 Apr 2011
Nissan is looking into a problem with the Leaf electric car.
Some owners say the Leaf has sometimes failed to start--or power up or boot up? We're not sure what you call what happens when you push the button on an EV.
Nissan says it has traced the problem to the Leaf's air-conditioning unit. It's working on a fix, but doesn't plan a recall.
