Poll : Number of miles before losing the first bar

Fri Apr 18, 2014 5:43 pm

The thread below talks about losing the first bar after 52k miles (in UK).

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=16510

What is the largest # of miles someone drove before losing a bar in the US ? Has anyone driven 52k miles without losing a bar ?

ps : Select 20,000 if you lost the bar between 20,000 and 30,000.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to ?

If I went 25,000, is that 20,000 or 30,000? :?

[note: Originally the poll stated only 10K, 20K, etc. without ranges. They've fixed that]

Might it be clearer with ranges?
0-10,000
10,000-20,000
and so forth.

ya, too bad Nissan did not see fit to give him a 2013 for trade on his 2011. It would have been less than 2 years to find out definitively whether the batteries were actually improved... As for me? It will take the full 3 years of my lease and I will still have to extrapolate.

Less than 10,000 for me. Although it might have lasted longer if I got the software update before the first bar fell.

If you are intending to use the poll data for something keep in mind that your data will come up with an estimate that is earlier than average because the poll excludes those who have not yet lost a bar.

Our LEAFs are at 21k and 14k and neither is close to losing the first bar.

I'm currently over 60k miles (and 3 years) and haven't lost any bars yet. Everything is still holding steady, so I'm not sure when I'll lose my first one...
