Sadly, this is a known issue with the 30kwh Leafs, and you will likely lose that fourth bar this Summer. That's the good news! The bad news is that your free replacement pack will likely lose capacity just as fast, making buying the car off-less unappealing. To speed the loss of that 4th bar, try to keep the pack "Hot & Full" as much as possible. Then try to keep the new one "Cool & Comfortable" with less than 100% charges except as needed.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Apr status report. 241 GID's, 52.70 AH, SOH =66.31%, Hx = 58.08%. 42299 miles. 94 L3 charges, 812 L2 charges. With 3 bars gone already, I'm expecting to lose the 4th bar over the summer probably in July. Oddly enough, increased DCFC charging hasn't seemed to affect anything, nor has L2 charging every time I get home (in case I need to go out again that day). I figure the 4th bar should drop somewhere between 60-63% SOH. I am DCFC'ing 2-3 times a week just to be sure I can get home after running errands. DCFC now starts to taper off the charge rate over 65-70%. Also the charge rate starts a lower value (85-90 amps) then it used to (106 amps when new). At 90% the rate is down to 20 amps. This started after the 3rd bar dropped.
