If the car is from 2016 and have the LBC firmware version 4NR4A I'm almost sure that the firmware update is missing. After that, it will be with version 4NR4C.
Just got feedback from Nissan in Milton Keynes in the UK (Glyn H) and they say it's all OK and I have the latest updates. There are no updates for the battery and the performance/charge levels are what they'd expect :'(
Should I return the car and look for another?
I paid ~£10k for a four year old Leaf Tekna with small charger and a range well below 100miles...
Yes, keep it. But at this point, I'd "unintentionally" abuse it - leave it fully charged all the time, parked outside, under the sun. And/or leave it with less than 5% charge, parked outside, under the sun. You have enough miles remaining in your warranty that you'll probably qualify for a warranty replacement before it expires.
The range is under 100 miles (brand new, it was rated for only 107 miles), because the battery had lost 30% of its capacity. You can compensate for it during this time by driving slower (below 60mph) and smoothly. It's not ideal, but is worth the effort. BECAUSE ... if you get a warranty replaced pack, it will most likely be a 40kwh pack, which is rated for 150miles of range. In which case, your "lemon" becomes a virtual 2018 leaf for ~£10k. So yeah, keep it.
