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.
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.
