Be sure to inquire at your local Nissan service center about the in-service date for your VIN number. That way you will know how long you have to drop the 9th bar. Its hard for me to make a suggestion as to whether you should drive 95 or Route 1. Another 2012 owner in Jupiter got his Leaf the same week I did, but he ended up with a new battery a whole year before me because he was out on 95 doing 70 mph to go to work in Stuart. So, you can either drive Route 1 and baby it, but then maybe miss getting a new battery under warranty, or drive it like normal out on 95, speed up the degradation, and hope for a new battery. The good part is that either way the car will still make your 35 mile commute. My 2012 Leaf was down to 65% SOH and about 45-50 miles of range when I finally lost the 9th bar.
