[/img]Hey guys, I’m new to electric cars. I’m in the process of purchasing a 2014 Nissan Leaf and I would really appreciate some advice regarding this car or possibly other options. I will include screenshots from the leaf spy app. I am aware of the degradation of the battery however I would like some more input. Thank you.

SOH 92.92%
HX 77.4%

Recount the bars, and if 11 only are showing you are probably looking at a BMS reset, albeit an atypical one.

I counted 11 bars and the SOH is 82.92% not 92 Sorry, I just don’t know if this is ok for a used 2014 Leaf SV. Also I just took it to a Nissan dealership for a chick change at one of the Chademo station and the SOH when up to 83.5% so I don’t know what’s going on to be honest.

QC sessions tend to bump of the "health" for a while. You stats are ok for a car that has been in a warmer than typical (but not Arizona Hot) climate.
