Certainly your new LEAF has also "kept losing capacity after losing the first CB" as well. But your *indicated* capacity rose 3.6% from 54.9Ah to 56.9Ah, which is more than I recall any 2011/2012 LEAF indication rising. While that is still (barely) within the 4% error window Nissan claims for the new firmware, it is darned close. At least it appears that the reading when you lost the CB was pessimistic.
If you have a meter which gives you the "Hlth" parameter shown on LeafSpy, would you mind sharing that with us?
For reference, our 2011 (manufactured three years ago this month) with ~19,000 miles currently shows 58.85Ah and Hlth of 78.36%. We just had P3227 done a couple of weeks ago and both values are still dropping, but Hlth is already *significantly* lower than it had been before the update while capacity is still a bit higher. Previously they were 58.04Ah and Hlth of 85.66%.
Back on topic: I recently drove 85.4 miles at 5.6 mi/kWh, arriving at my destination with 16.1% SOC remaining. (This was just after the P3227 update and capacity indicated was ~61Ah at the time of the trip.)
