Your statement tells me that you still don't understand the root problem that this update resolves.
I was at 8 bars, 50.4 AHr, 63.41% SOH, prior to the update. Now at 11 bars, 66.1 AHr, 83.16% SOH 22k miles. The commuting range has improved from about 75-80 miles to 90 miles from 100% to turtle. I am now seeing 88-92 miles on the GOM after a full charge. LeafSpy says my total charge has increased from 17.8 kWH to 22.9 kWH.
While this is definitely an improvement, I do not feel like the software update solved the root problem of my 30 kWh battery. It seems like it has just postponed my eligibility for a replacement by a year or 2 and I will have to live with what amounts to a 24 kWh battery after I just spent the last year living with a 24 kWh and less battery.
What do you think, did this resolve my battery issues??
Your case is interesting in a few different ways;
*Your reset went immediately to 11 bars. You are the only one I know of that didnt have 12 bars for at least a short period of time
*Your fast charging speed has slowed down. Not a lot of feedback on this yet but a few have stated they saw no change while yours was throttled by a significant amount.
Let me add a second data point then. My sister-in-law's leaf had only 8-bars (bought that way), and when she started the warranty claim, they updated the firmware, and she was at 11-bars:
Hx . 54.51%
SOC . 76.2%
37,684 miles, 79 QC's, 1467 L1/L2's
Before the update:
Hx . 55.06%
