Get LeafSpy as it will tell you much more detailed information about the SOH reading of the car. You may still be a candidate for a warranty replacement battery which IMO is a great place to be. The rest of the car will last for a long time and getting a brand new (40kWh !!) battery in the middle of the car's life is like a gift from ....somewhere.
You did notice in the OP where he posted the stats from Leaf Spy?
No, he's not a candidate for a warranty replacement right now, and he never was. From his initial post it was obvious he was going to get the BMS update and end up with 10 or 11 bars.
So, here's what happened when I brought the car home. I got the software update, 11 bars. Leafspy has my SOH over 80 now. BUT.
The service manager said they would comp me a battery test the next time I came in for service and replace it if it showed any signs of degradation at all. When I mentioned that I had heard that the software reset would only go to 9, as the initial replyguy said here, he said if it had done that they would have run the battery test right away.
I never squeaky wheeled, I was just straight up. Even though I'm working in applied math now, I have a law degree. It's not like I'm concerned about getting told "no" by some dude once. There's always a procedure to try and play out. If I had listened to guys like that a few years ago I never would have gotten my surgery approved by insurance. Polite persistence pays. No need to be a jerk, but come on. If the battery loses most of its life in 3 years, that's just wrong.
I'm very happy with the result and I'm not sure why everyone was so fast to curb my enthusiasm. I wonder if this board has the typical negative board culture. I was hoping for a friendly place to share info and projects about Leafs, not get hazed.
