I have a 1/2013 build LEAF S. I lost the first bar at 45,000 miles but I seem to have been piling on the miles faster than this car. I was at 80% SOH at 54,000 miles and 10 months after the first bar dropped. I am now at 68% at 63,800 miles. For the most part, I was quite conscientious about battery health. I did do repeated QCs during a couple of summer road trips though.
You did very, very well given the chemistry of your Leaf's battery.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

How many miles are you now getting per charge with 68% SOH?

For warranty, wouldn't the batteries still be covered until 2021 if the battery degrades much further?

I find the 68% fairly accurate. My daughter uses the car and is reporting 70 GOM miles with her somewhat slow driving. I think I would get 58 miles on the highway.
