I just lost my first bar over the weekend at 50,200 miles. No LeafSpy or anything, but I'm pretty pleased with how the battery has performed in our cold winters and hot summers.

Model year? Build month? Approximate location? (in most cases metropolitan area name is good enough)

Got my 2014 Leaf a month ago, July 29 2017. It was coming off a lease so I'm owner #2. It had 25,700 miles on it and a full 12 bars.

Lost my first bar in <3 weeks, at 26,000 miles on the nose.

Is this out of the ordinary for Hotlanta, GA?

I wouldn't say so. If the car loses a second bar soon, though, I'd suspect a BMS reset.
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

I didn't notice the exact day my first bar dropped but it was sometime in the last week or two. For easy recollection , I'm going to say it happened on the day of the eclipse. Mileage was right around 40,500 miles.

No surprise since after buying at end of May at SOH 86, it has been bouncing from 85 to 84 and back all summer.
