Safety hazard design issue - experienced EV and Hybrid Driver

Review from a driver of EV from last 2+ years and hybrid from last 12+ years so been an early adaptor for both EV and Hybrid cars.

Will I recommend Nissan Leaf - NO!! Read on......

I speak from experience stay clear of the Nissan EV as the customer service is appalling if any fault occurs within the warranty period. I have extensive seaming of the windscreen which gets accentuated during rain/humid weather conditions in the UK. It is a major safety hazard as there have been instances where I would have to make an emergency stop whilst driving to clear the screen. Service team refuses to address as apparently it is a known design issue and not addressable by the service team.

Nissan claims leaf and EV as their flagship model however given design safety issue and appalling customer service, I wouldn't recommend Nissan Leaf to anyone.
