Re: Dealer Maintenance regarding Battery Warranty

It came as a surprise to MANY people, once we started to figure out in 2015 that the old chemistry was retained into 2013. The 2013 even has a slightly different battery case. I'm glad the car is still useful for you.

Yeah. As a data point, my 5/2013 built '13 Leaf is still at 11 capacity bars. Lost 1st bar at just shy of 50K miles in Nov 2017. SOH is fluctuating around 82.xx% mostly. Sometimes, it rises into the low 83.xx now.

Need to do some research as to how much I can sell it for, esp. given that my white CA HOV stickers are expired and can't be renewed (except by low income CA folks starting in 2020, supposedly).

I live and work in a hotter part of the SF Bay Area but not blazing hot like Dublin, Walnut Creek and Concord.
