I'm very happy to have found this excellent and very active community!
I bought a used 2012 Leaf, and am very excited to drive it this first week. It has 50,000 km (31,000 miles) on it, and 11/12 bars.
Before purchase it went through a Nissan Dealer "battery check" which cost me about a hundred dollars. I got a sheet back with 4 rows of stars, and a battery rating of 11/12 bars. All excellent. The dash shows 11 bars capacity, and I have seen range numbers from 119 to 136 km ( 74 to 85 miles) on the meter at full charge in the driveway.
It looks like I have the LED headlights, judging by photos I have seen - and I have investigated under the hood and seen the 3 orange cables, as well as the second plug on the left, which shows me I have a DC Quick Charge option, although I am currently only using the Level 1 charge cable that came with the car, as my electrician has not yet been able to assess my panel. I'm told that the car has the cold weather package, but I have no idea how to confirm this. It also has the Navigation option. The car was listed as an SV when I bought it, but it seems, as I have noted, that it has some SL features?
I've done 2 commutes to work so far (82 km / 51 mile round-trip) and this has left me with 20-30 km (15 miles) left over when I get home.
But here's the thing - Charging.
With the included 120v cable on a 15 amp circuit, the Car charged to 100% in about 12 hours, from a starting point of 2 bars / 24 km (15 miles). Is that normal behavior? It seems like it should take a LOT longer to get to full charge.. Is there any way to see or identify the charger capacity?
I don't have the leaf spy app, unfortunately, or very much experience with the technology.
Any thoughts welcome! I should note that this is a Canadian Car, and perhaps (?) might not be the same as a U.S. one - also the service records show only a bumper scrape and some first-year service checks. No other services or upgrades.
