I looked at several used Leafs before purchasing this weekend. I considered:
1. 2017, 27k mi, 87 SOH
2. 2018, 7k mi, 94 SOH
3. 2018, 15k mi, 93 SOH
4. 2019, 10k mi, 94 SOH
Leafspy showed QCs in the single digits for all vehicles, except #3 showed 48 QCs!
As things unfolded, #3 had the best combo of color, features, price and was factory “certified”. I ended up purchasing it despite its many QCs because the SOH didn’t seem adversely affected at all. It was essentially the SAME SOH as the other 2nd Gens I considered.
I would imagine that Nissan has way too much invested in warranties and infrastructure to partner with EVgo (free QC charging) if QCs were horrible for your Leaf, right?
The consensus seems to be (high) temperatures, mileage and age are the biggest factors impacting battery life. Is the jury still out on quick charging?
What do you think? Is nearly 50 QCs too many? Should I avoid them like the plague now?
