A big part of Stoaty's slower capacity bar loss is extremely efficient driving.
I don't have that issue, but the first three years I did protect capacity by 80% charging just in time and left garage doors partially open to avoid LEAF being in garge temperature 15F above ambient.
If I had not done that, I might have gotten a $6,000 replacement battery too
Instead I likely will lose the fourth bar at five years and six months, at around 34,000 miles.
Unless we get a summer like 2011 with multiple 104F days and do lots of driving and DCQC on those days.
