my understanding is that the increase in warranty was applied to the older 2011-12 models as well, so 8 years/100k mi in the US. if you get to 8 bars before then, you should be good for a replacement
mnl: I don't know what you're talking about.
Leaf, including the 2011 model year has ALWAYS had an 8 year/100K mile defects warranty on the HV battery but it has NEVER covered "gradual capacity loss". This is listed in https://owners.nissanusa.com/content/te ... ooklet.pdf
'11 and '12 Leaf did not come with ANY (gradual) capacity loss warranty. It wasn't until the Klee class action suit settlement reared its head did all '11 thru '15 Leafs receive a 5 year/60K capacity warranty: if you're down to 8 bars within 5 years/60K miles, the battery will be "repaired" or replaced: viewtopic.php?t=13192
To tell any '11 or '12 (or any '11 thru '15) Leaf owner that they have 8 years/100K miles to get down to 8 bars is flat out wrong.
(30 kWh pack Leafs (e.g. '16 SV and SL, '16 "S 30" but NOT the original 24 kWh '16; all '17 Leafs) have an 8 year/100K capacity warranty.)
OP, if you have a weak cell, sometimes they have been replaced for free as part of the 8 year/100K defects warranty. Example: viewtopic.php?p=457964#p457964
