At drop to 8 bars, 42.15 Ahr, 64% SOH, 43.02 HX, 30,990 OD, 2 quick and 2007 L1/L2 charges. 2011 silver SL #4639. DOM 05/11. Delivered in June 2011. I recall the car spent time in a northern New England state. When I purchased it, it would read 60 miles range and would go only 15 miles to 0 range. The dealer replaced module 48 and car was at 10 bars. That was about 3 months ago.

DON'T DRIVE PAST 59,999 miles, then have it towed on a flat bed to the dealer when the 4th bar drops.

The weak module in my car is 48 also. When did you have it repaired (3 months ago?) and why didn't they give you a new lizard battery? OK, I went back and read some of your posts. The settlement of Klee V Nissan it sounds like you are not a class member. Lets hope they will give you a new pack. Good luck! I am in the same situation as you and am very interested in how they resolve this with you. My fingers are crossed...

When I went in 3 months ago, the bad module was replaced because my capacity was reading 10 bars. I made sure the latest update to the software was downloaded and checked that the previous owner didn't opt out of the class. I was told what not to do by the dealership to degrade the battery any further, and if it so happens that the battery were to drop below 9 bars I should bring it back for a replacement pack. In the owners manual it states that Nissan's warranty transferrs to the new owner as long as the car was originally purchased from a Nissan dealer and in my case remained in the US.

Did you go to the dealer (on Monday 10/24/15 as previously stated that you intended to do) since you have now have just recently dropped to 8 bars, and what did they say and do?

They did a battery test and sent results to Nissan. Waiting for my service advisor to call me back. Will stop by tomorrow if I don't hear from him by 10 am.

New battery in today. Planning a long ride tomorrow. Charging set now for 80%. Will be installing swamp cooler in garage for summers. Will be charging @ night in summer so battery will remain as cool as possible.
