Re: How long 'til 4th bar drops?

Sun May 14, 2017 7:43 am

Dropped my 8th bar last night. 43.466 AHr and 72% SOH. I guess the 8 bar is not dependent on SOH at all. I'm surprised that I dropped my 8th bar at such a high AHr, but no complaints.

Now... do I get the lizard now or wait until summer is over...

Congrats! It just depends on your mileage and needs. If the current range works for you, I would wait as long as you can without going over the 60k miles.

I went out and took a reading today. Mine is still holding on to that 9th bar. It should be dropping soon, probably when it gets warmer. Based on the numbers, I'm surprised it has not already dropped.

The vehicle was manufactured in January 2013, spent the first two years in Georgia, was auctioned after lease return and
brought to Las Vegas. I got it in March 2015. It dropped the first bar in October 2015, the second bar in June 2016, and
the third bar in November 2016.

May 15, 2017 - AHr=40.96, SOH=62%, Hx=55.96%, odo=25,169 miles, QC=4 L1/L2=1989

Here's my 2012, with daily health stats since I bought it and linear regression lines, with my (hopeful) "goal" values as horizontal lines. At a bit under 38,000 miles, but the 60 months expires early January, so it's a race against time. 3rd owner of the car which started life as a lease in Texas... Average driving is < 20 miles/day so far.
(Oh, edit: I'm currently at 9 bars)

It's just a graph from an OpenOffice spreadsheet. :)

That's a very high SOH for dropping your 8th bar. So you have 7 bars now? I have 4 months until my 60 months are up, and I don't have any chance, I don't think 46.7AHr and 71% SOH. But now that it is warming up, the AHr drop is much faster, so I fear I will lost my 9th bar right after my 60 months is up. :?
Pulled the trigger on going EV on 10/2016 with a 2012 Leaf, and a Tesla Model 3 reservation expected to receive in June 2018.

Sorry. I have 8 bars now. I lost 0.75 AHr since then and haven't driven much. Still at 72% SOH.
