FYI, review this post as there's a decent buyers guide based on the posts in it:viewtopic.php?f=6&t=23775
In particular, try to do the "25% discharge test" to verify Leaf Spy metrics.
Definitely buy a OBD2 dongle online before you test drive prospective Leafs, then learn from these forums what the metrics mean (SOH, AHr, Hx are the most important).Just don't rely exclusively on Leaf Spy as indications are that it can't protect you from an unscrupulous dealer who has performed a BMS reset
If you find a Leaf that looks promising, start a new thread in this same subforum and provide the following details:
- Year and trim level (S, SV, SL)
- VIN number
- Capacity bars showing on dash
- QC package?
- Date of manufacture (April of 2013 or newer is ideal)
- SOH, AHr, and Hx from Leaf Spy
- Where it was first sold (on door pillar sticker)
- Results of 25% discharge test (reset trip counter, note starting %SOC, drive until %SOC drops by 25%, note trip miles and multiply that by 4), if you are able to do that
Also, lookup the original sales sticker using this link:http://cpo.nissanusa.com/nna/
Just append the VIN to the end of that URL and, with luck, you'll see a PDF of the original sales sticker in your browser - doesn't work for all Leafs though.
