So he gets a new battery with the next bar loss?
Sam Backus, also from AZ, is reporting 3 bar loss in that same thread....
Sam Backus at https://www.facebook.com/groups/nissan. ... 815894953/ is now posting pics of being down 4 bars on his '16 SL in Phoenix. This makes at least the 2nd 4 bar loser on these 30 kWh Leafs.
From his post, I see these stats:
odo: 24,004 miles
Seems like these model year '16 30 kWh batteries are about as bad as the '11 Leaf batteries in the heat.
It'll be interesting to see what happens when '17 Leafs in Phoenix hit the 2 year mark/go thru 2 Phoenix summers.
He also said
'm excited about the new battery but Nissan says it will only have a 12 month /12,000 mile warranty on the replacement battery, not the continuation of the original warranty
