Re: 2013-2014 bar losers and capacity losses

Pix to follow. Yesterday a WA LEAFer posted pix on his 12 bar 2013 @ 90,000 miles speculating whether his OEM tires would last to 100,000 miles!

Yay! What was the build month? It's on the driver's side door sticker. I guess you're in a hotter part of Nor Cal.

Can you add your car to http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Real ... 3.75.25.29? Thanks!

Thanks! As I suspected, yet another data point to validate that it seems '13 Leafs built before 4/2013 seem to have inferior batteries in terms of degradation.

MY2013 Leaf S, lost my first bar today at 54050 miles. Build date 10/2013 delivered 12/2013. AHr 54.982, Hx 20.99, SOH 84%. I have not babied it, 90% or more of the charges have been to 100%, lived in southeastern South Carolina, 20 minutes from Savannah, GA, the first 2 years then Cincinnati OH. Level One charging only for the first 2 years then level 2 charging, the only quick charge was once prior to purchase at either dealer or factory.

Thanks. Hx 20.99? That doesn't right. Typo?

Can you also add your data to http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Real ... s#one_bars?

I think that guy finally lost a capacity bar at 92,710 miles. Post at https://www.facebook.com/groups/seattle ... 036995594/. Amazing! Wish my climate were that mild.

I expect my 5/2013 built Leaf to finally lose a capacity bar before this summer's over. I'm past 45.8K miles right now.

My 2013 Leaf SV lost 1 bar (currently at 11/12) at about 27.5k miles. That seems kind of early based on what I've read here. The car started out in Livermore, California for 3 years and now in Vancouver, Canada where the weather is a lot milder but damp. :) I don't know what charging method was used during the first 3 years, I am using trickle charge at home and Level 2 when I need a top up. After a full charge, the Leaf reports about 78 miles of available range. I believe the manufacture date is May 2013. I don't have Leaf Spy stats yet but working on getting some soon to post.

It gets very hot in Livermore and the surrounding area during the summer.
