FWIW, mine has been steadily dropping since I got it late August as well. I would expect the same, though with your cooler weather it will probably hold steady for a while.

Started at 66.1 AHr / 99.6 Hx late August, and today (about 6 weeks later) sitting at 62.9 Ahr / 92.1 Hx.

One other interesting tidbit about the new pack compared to the old pack:

At 80% charge, the new pack charges to 388V (4.04V / cell) when the old pack (5-bar lost) only charged to 385V (4.01V / cell).

So ... is there a thread for replacement battery degradation stats? ;)

Picked up my car today after warranty replacement. I haven't full charged it yet. But, AHr is 63.80 and SOH = 100% and HX = 100%.

After 9 days and 270 miles, I'm down to 63.91Ahr, 94.54Hx on the new battery. That's down 2.23Ahr in just over a week. I presume/hope this is just some early adjustment to the true state of the battery, otherwise I'll be back in replacement range by March! (which is, coincidentally, one month after the warranty expires).

I picked up my early 2013 Leaf tonight from the warranty battery replacement at 39,712 miles. The work was done at Nissan of Downtown LA and the battery took six weeks to arrive.

Stats when I dropped the car off were:

AHr 41.60, SOH 63%, Hx 56.90

Stats on the replacement battery:

AHr 65.47, SOH 100%, Hx 100.30

The battery part number listed on the invoice is 295B0-3NF8A.

Overall a painless experience and the car drives like new. I’m pleased.

Within a few days of this post, my AHr went up to 66.14 and has stayed there ever since.

I'd like to know too.

I got mine replaced back in June 2017.

Since then, I've had:

-168 Charges, mostly all level 1 chargers at night up to 80% and charge it every 3-4 days. My commute is so short that I don't need to charge it. I also charge it at 9:30 PM.
-Driven 3000 miles (500 miles a month)
-Park my car outside at night
-Park my car in a parking structure during the day at work
-Live in LA near the water, so definitely much cooler than inland.
-Lost almost 7 AHR (59.34 AHr) and at 93.02% SOH.

Seems pretty excessive considering how little I've driven and how well I charge the car.

I posted my degradation in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=30&t=24532
since it is a 2016 "Lizard" battery. I don't know if that's the right place, but I have only put 10,000 miles on the Leaf in 22 months, and the battery is already down to 91%. Its good I have the Tesla now. I just hope I can find someone up north to take the Leaf off my hands cheap before the Model 3 gets here.

Six Weeks? My car dropped to 8 bars on a Sunday, I took it into the Cerritos Nissan dealership on Monday, they told me it would take between 2-6 weeks for the battery to arrive.

I called Nissan Consumer Affairs and left a message asking if it could possibly be sped up so I would have it in time for Christmas. I figured it was a long shot, but worth asking.

On Tuesday, I got a call from consumer affairs letting me know that they couldn't speed up getting the battery to the dealership, as it was already there.

I called and my service advisor was out for the day on a family emergency, so I tried calling on Wednesday morning, but their phones were down, so I drove over there since I needed to go that direction before work anyway. They told me the Leaf technician was asking if I could bring the car in that day to get the battery done, since I was there with the car, I did so. I was told it should be done at the end of the day, but at lunch time they called me and told me my car was ready.

So it took from my first visit at about 7:30 AM on Monday to around Noon on Wednesday for me to get a brand new battery in the car. To say I was shocked at how quickly it was done is an understatement.

At least you got to 22 months and 10k miles. I'm only 7 months in with 3000 miles and almost there. It doesn't make any sense.
