They're going to have to be, to push the car the last 10 miles to their destinations."need nothing more than new owner in excellent condition".
Here's another case of that. This person (initials JR) posted at https://www.facebook.com/groups/4377412 ... 034002079/ "2012 leaf SL 7 battery bars left and 51,000 miles on it.. would this be a bad buy?"
https://www.facebook.com/groups/Nissan. ... 341199353/ pointed to a post by the world famous Bjorn: https://www.facebook.com/Teslabjorn/pos ... 5141077612. It's a 3 bar remaining '12 in Thailand. Oddly, it somehow (?) only has about 16K km on it. Bjorn said "The owner has been charging it to 100 % every day for the past 2.5 years." Well, if the owner didn't need to do that, they didn't do their battery any favors.cwerdna wrote: ↑Sun Dec 17, 2017 4:19 amhttps://www.facebook.com/groups/nissan. ... 885581945/ has dashboard pics of a '12 Leaf imported to Colombo, Sri Lanka from Japan which at 176K km shows it's down to 3 (!) capacity bars, So, it's a 9 bar (!) loser. I think this is a record for me, so far. I don't recall hearing of any that are worse than this, yet.
If https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colombo#Climate is accurate, that is a pretty unkind climate to Leaf batteries.
I assume the car spent more time in Sri Lanka than Japan.
More on a disturbing trend is the guy at https://www.facebook.com/groups/4377412 ... 870066995/ asking about '11 Leafs for $11K (!!!) and asking "Do they really get 100 mile range?" From his questions, I don't think he knows anything about the capacity bars, battery degradation let alone the crap chemistry on the '11 Leafs.cwerdna wrote: ↑Wed May 08, 2019 6:57 pmIt's very disturbing to me the # of people I've seen seeing on FB groups poking around about '11 and '12 Leafs w/o knowing about capacity bars, the chemistry of the battery it came with, etc. At least this person asked and got the proper responses of run away and it is out of capacity warranty.
