I didn't document but it seems like it has been about a year.
It really started dropping with the warm weather.

what is that 42172? Is that the VIN? If so is this a 2012 model Leaf?

I believe 42.172 is his Ahr at which he lost his 4th bar.

Correct, that is the Ahr
This is a 2011 car delivered in May 2011

Went to the dealer and passed my failure test, so they are going to call Nissan on Monday to start the process.

Hi everyone, I'm new here, perhaps someone can help with some questions I have. I would like to know if anyone has any information on how Nissan calculates the capacity loss. I'm under the impression they don't use the bar gauge and have an alternate method on obtaining the actual capacity loss. Anyone have experience with this?

So far as the capacity warranty and how it relates to LEAF owners is concerned, Nissan is only interested in bar loss. Not being funny, but for what reason would there be a need to know if they do otherwise for other purposes?
