Are there any specific numbers that look low?
Most of my driving has been with eco mode off and in "B" mode. I haven't done enough reasearch to know how much difference driving habits make. I figure I might as well enjoy the ride but I'm far from flooring it.
guessing its just the heat the car lived in. you are close to losing your first capacity bar. Your driving habits will affect longevity as jackrabbit starts and other high current activities will shorten life but I think this is not enough to be a concern.
your bigger concern should be keeping car cool. Park in shade, etc.
On the flip side; if you live in hot climate now, you are probably in line for battery replacement a few years done the line which might sound good but will require you to deal with greatly reduced range.
The chemistry should have held up better than it did which leads me to believe the car was not maintained correctly.
