In the last 2 weeks before she was killed, ahr varied from 81.78 to 82.34 (82.34 is new pack reading) FYI; never got the chance to install the SW update.
Now we can attribute my nondegradable pack to weather which seems to be the status quo here but now I have the 2018 with only 20,000 miles on it and SOH lower than yours. There is also a fellow NWer who had an early build 30 kwh LEAF like yours and lost 10% in just under a year so they are not "complying" with the climate rule either.
I personally think its shoddy quality control. I rolled the dice on the S30 and came up a winner. Not so much on the S40.
Hoping our new 40kWh pack will do better, but it doesn't really matter since we are continuing to lease and the warranty giving us a minimum protected threshold. It will be a secondary vehicle as the 30 kWh Leaf was, and with the improved 150 mile EV range it will be even more than we need.
The Model 3 SR+ will remain the primary vehicle and will take us on the longest trips when needed. We're vacationing with my cousin's family at the end of this month so will drive 400 miles down to L.A. then down to San Diego and back, so ~1,200 miles round trip. 240 mile range and the fastest L3 (supercharging) absolves this responsibility from the Leaf.
The Leaf will remain a city car and really max round trip will remain the 50 miles to and from the airport. Might rarely take it up to Tahoe if we need two cars and use the free EVgo L3/L2 charging we get for 2 years.
