I remember a recent discussion on here regarding Prius batteries, that when they go bad, it is usually only one cell, which you can replace far cheaper than the entire pack. I watched a video of a guy from a company in the Phoenix area that did that. Would Leaf battery packs be similar, just larger? After 5-10 years you test each cell, replace the ones that area actually bad, and then go on your merry way?
