So bring a trailer and haul your new Leaf home No rust, lots of cars to choose from, plus more time in CO.
SOH is more or less the percentage of the original capacity that the car has left. The first bar drops at about 85% SOH, the next bars are about 7.5% per bar. So a car with 11 bars should show 77.5 - 85% SOH and would have 77.5% - 85% of its original capacity. The SOH will give you a more precise reading of the remaining capacity since the bars are a fairly rough estimation of the SOH.
There are several guys at work here who have 24kWh Leafs and they are losing the first bar around 50k miles on average. A lot depends on the usage and charging habits of the owner and hot weather seems to be the biggest factor in battery life.
There is lots of good info in the links below if you haven't seen it already.
