Doesn't that work out to < 60% remaining capacity ?
Please see my response at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 59#p510059
What happened to the "about 70%, 4 bar loss" warranty Nissan likes to talk about ?
The language in the US warranty booklets only refers to bars. It nowhere (that I've found in all the ones I've looked at) gives any sort of mapping of bars vs. % or any sort of warranty by % of remaining capacity.
Besides the table at http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Batt ... y_Behavior
that was in the '11 service manual and removed in later ones w/no explanation (AFAIK), the only references I'm aware of re: 70% are at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=11043
(search for 70 percent). There might be others (e.g. videos) but I don't have a full list.
Does anyone know if the earlier table has reappeared in any Leaf service manuals or other official Nissan documentation (e.g. TSB)?
I can confirm it's on page MWI-23 of the '11 service manual but couldn't find such a table in the MWI chapter of the '12 nor '13 service manuals.
For the UK, https://www.nissan.co.uk/ownership/niss ... nties.html
just talks about bars. Oddly http://corporate-sales.nissan.co.uk/GB/ ... ssFAQ.html
What happens if the battery life drops or the battery fails?
The battery comes with a 5 year, 60,000-mile warranty. It also comes with a State of Health Guarantee. This means that during this period, we’ll carry out whatever work is necessary, to make sure the battery life is at a minimum of 75% (9 out of 12 bars on the vehicle battery State of Health Meter). It also means that if any of the battery cells happen to fail, we’ll replace them. If you buy the vehicle and lease batteries, then the battery State of Health Guarantee runs for the length of your battery lease agreement.
Nissan's US warranty language is by bars, not by % of capacity remaining, AFAIK. We also have nothing that's been acknowledged by Nissan to represent % capacity remaining. All we have to go by is bars, unfortunately. Nissan can screw w/the mapping of bars vs. % capacity as they please.
