I still can’t decide wheather to send it back, I haven’t seen any 15s with all the bars, I paid $10,300.
You said 50 miles is a reasonable distance fully charged and I don’t drive far and it probably would be ok. I was just expecting more esp when the guessometer said 80. But it doesn’t charge that much when I charged it.
We bought a 2018 Leaf S in June, so I just sold my 2015 S with 33,000 miles, 12 bars, 93% SOH. It was an off lease Oregon car when I bought it at a Portland Nissan dealer in September of 2017. I paid $9325, but sold it 10 months later for $10,750. The Northwest used Leaf market had gone up for some reason. It was a great car and I regularly got 90-95 miles (sometimes 100) around town at an average of 30-45 MPH. I always drove in B mode and my GOM usually showed in the mid to high 90's at full charge. Not sure how accurate this is, but to get my full charge range measurement I went from 100% charge down to 30%, then I would charge and go from 100% to 70%. My highway tests weren't as frequent and precise as my local drives, so my range measurements aren't as reliable. I estimate that my average highway (65 mph) full charge range was 80 miles, but of course I never went that far before charging. I typically would drive 50 miles to Portland, then charge at 30-40% remaining, before driving home.
