Warranties are nice, to a degree. But there's always a time at which they expire. Then what?

The Nissan Leaf is a prime example of this problem. Once the warranty period is over and the battery degrades down to 50% (or less!) The car is now pretty much worthless. Few people want such a car, and fewer still can use such a car as their only car (or cars).

Now if that happened 30 years from now, great! But when it happens some 5-10 years later, like right after the warranty expires, that's not great!
