Did you get the software upgrade done yet? If not, the BMS is not reporting accurate battery degradation...

There's something very... high school about talking about the first time you lost something. My '15 S just dropped its first bar, just a smidge over 30k miles.

One thing about the poll that disappoints me is that we don't have any information about the model year of each vehicle, so for example, we can't glean whether the Lizard battery chemistry helps at all.

Yes, should collect information on the year of the vehicle. Also silly to not gather information on how far a Leaf has gone without losing a bar. Otherwise you leave out a substantial portion of currently availale information.

I have a 2015, going on 4 years of use in two more months, and 50,000 miles. I still have 12 bars, and 95% SOH. I've been very lucky..

Well we finally lost the first one, we had been hovering in the 86 to 87 for an SOH via Leaf Spy all summer, but today it was gone.

2013 S trim with 72,409 miles. I can't complain, but it was weird to see it not there.

My 2013 just lost its first bar at 27500. I am at 85% SOH and will be going to the shop to see why it has started popping the 15 amp breaker. I have had the car for over a year now and is the only thing on the circuit,
