Sep 15, 2017 - AHr=38.17, SOH=58%, Hx=51.70%, odo=25,517 miles, QC=4 L1/L2=2176

So what is up with that?
I guess my estimates were way off. I could understand losing the 4th bar at 65% or AHr of 42, but that seems a little extreme.


I don't really know. I expected the fourth bar to drop months ago. Every other report I've seen shows a drop at higher AHr levels. There may be a time/mileage factor built into the drop. Due to the decreased range, I have not driven it as much this summer as I did the last two.

It doesn't make any sense with those numbers that you haven't lost the 4th bar.


I know, especially considering the long, hot summer we had.

Numbers below in my signature line. Looks like my 9th bar will drop soon but not sure I can make that happen in 19 days left.

Good luck to all the 2013 nissan leaf owners on a battery replacement. Such a bummer that Nissan decided to end their goodwill program.

My 5 year battery warranty is up today. No 4th bar drop....too bad Nissan didn't extend their "goodwill" program to the 2013 models or later. I guess I will just need to live with the limited range. Good luck to all the other Leaf owners out there who decided to purchase instead of lease. Dwindling battery range will be a challenge but I can make it work.

Watch my fourth bar drop this month...

Nissan consumer affairs called me regarding the email I sent. Basically no help... The only suggestion the lady has was to go to a Nissan dealership and see what their financing department can offer for a new battery.

Spending $5k on a new battery for 30% more capacity seems a bit silly.

I will just hang onto the Leaf as it is. Limited range but charging at work and home will be fine for now.

Good luck to all you other Leafers out there. Doubtful any other owners will get assistance from Nissan going forward on their "goodwill program". Treating the 2011 and 2012 owners with respect and offering to pay for a new battery with 10%-20% out of pocket for early adopters was great for those who took the offer. 2013 owners don't receive anything other than a suggestion to get a new battery financed...

Thanks again Nissan for the dedication to your customers.

I am in line for a Sondors. I hope the Sondors enters into production and isn't in limbo like the Elio...

My AHr reading, 2013 SL 20K Miles, was 41.25 after several readings of 40.97 with 4th bar drop.
Comments about 42-43 ranges at 4th drop may longer work for large number of 2013 users coming up on 60 months limits.

Wow, the numbers you provided in your signature line have changed dramatically. Did you receive a new battery? I am assuming you are under warranty period? Nice job, I didn't try and kill my battery at the end as the numbers didn't look good enough for the fourth bar to drop.

Good luck on getting the battery!

Nissan starts exchange program in Japan. At 300,000 yen ($2,853), this might be a good deal for the older Nissan Leaf owners.

It looks like the Nissan 30 kwh battery packs are degrading faster than the 24 kwh packs. Nissan will need to work out the kinks in their engineering....

Check out the comments at the end this article. Good information from other Leaf owners. I am glad my old 24 kwh pack isn't degrading as much as the newer packs...
