I don't know the exact month the warranty expires. The owner, who works for a Nissan dealer, said a little less than a year (I can get more detail). I live in Phoenix, though it's now "winter" (i.e. in the 80's and 70's vs. the 100's). Is it worth the risk to spend about $9k and hope it drops to 8 bars?
You really need LeafSpy readings to be able to answer this properly. The Phoenix heat and regular driving will get the bar dropped, but time is getting low. Get the manufacture date from the label inside the drivers door. If it was manufactured before 4/13, the bar should drop easily, but time is very short to get it done. The battery replacement warranty is 60 months or 60,000 miles from the original in-service date, which any Nissan dealer can lookup using the VIN number.
