Post the first page of Leaf Spy. The one with the individual battery voltages bar graphs. At the top of that page it will list battery capacity regardless of charge level.

You're close. 43.3 Ahr is the median for 9th bar loss. But Leafs seldom lose a bar when battery is cold. I think you'll lose the bar in April or May. Judging from the serial number, you still have some time on the capacity warranty, which is a good thing.

Thank you very much for your opinion I was thinking the same thing. The car is in Ohio and only in the 40s here now.

How did you manage to lose three, almost four, bars in Ohio? Did the car come from a very hot area?

My car's SOH (state of health) was at 63% when the car became 8 bars. AHr was 41.7

The car has been in Texas, Arizona, North Carolina, and Atlanta. I bought the car on a deal I couldn't pass up.

Your Leaf's mileage and SOH is almost identical to my 2012 here in Florida. With the cooler weather I don't expect the 4th bar to drop until spring.
