Pix to follow. Yesterday a WA LEAFer posted pix on his 12 bar 2013 @ 90,000 miles speculating whether his OEM tires would last to 100,000 miles!

UNREAL!

Yay! What was the build month? It's on the driver's side door sticker. I guess you're in a hotter part of Nor Cal.

Can you add your car to http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Real ... 3.75.25.29? Thanks!

Thanks! As I suspected, yet another data point to validate that it seems '13 Leafs built before 4/2013 seem to have inferior batteries in terms of degradation.

MY2013 Leaf S, lost my first bar today at 54050 miles. Build date 10/2013 delivered 12/2013. AHr 54.982, Hx 20.99, SOH 84%. I have not babied it, 90% or more of the charges have been to 100%, lived in southeastern South Carolina, 20 minutes from Savannah, GA, the first 2 years then Cincinnati OH. Level One charging only for the first 2 years then level 2 charging, the only quick charge was once prior to purchase at either dealer or factory.

Thanks. Hx 20.99? That doesn't right. Typo?

Can you also add your data to http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Real ... s#one_bars?

I think that guy finally lost a capacity bar at 92,710 miles. Post at https://www.facebook.com/groups/seattle ... 036995594/. Amazing! Wish my climate were that mild.

I expect my 5/2013 built Leaf to finally lose a capacity bar before this summer's over. I'm past 45.8K miles right now.

My 2013 Leaf SV lost 1 bar (currently at 11/12) at about 27.5k miles. That seems kind of early based on what I've read here. The car started out in Livermore, California for 3 years and now in Vancouver, Canada where the weather is a lot milder but damp. :) I don't know what charging method was used during the first 3 years, I am using trickle charge at home and Level 2 when I need a top up. After a full charge, the Leaf reports about 78 miles of available range. I believe the manufacture date is May 2013. I don't have Leaf Spy stats yet but working on getting some soon to post.

It gets very hot in Livermore and the surrounding area during the summer.

Build month is on driver's side door sticker.
