Didn't someone report recently that any cars covered by the class action were not candidates for bbb process?
Maybe your only hope is that it develops a fatal battery manufacturing defect and qualifies for the battery defect warranty instead of the battery capacity warranty. Who knows, it could start showing a defect as it degrades to nothing...

Yes.
My understanding is they managed to win under the original 100,000 mile powertrain warranty under appeal of the initial bbb rejection.

Good luck on getting there. Where are you from?
Northern California. We had a drop in the temp, but it's supposed to be in the 60s/70s for the next week. Come on baby!

4th bar lost yesterday, 3/18/16.
2012 SV
53,474 miles
51.75 months old
Atlanta

I think I'll go ahead and use up the remaining miles and calendar before the warranty lapses, before getting the new battery pack under warranty. Anyone have a reason to think this approach is a bad idea? Thanks.

I would delay. Especially if you can make it through the heat of summer on the old battery.

As long as you were part of the lawsuit, I would wait if you can.

I'm not part of a lawsuit. I'm just talking about the 5yr/60k warranty against losing 4 bars.
Is there something I'm missing here, re a lawsuit?

The warranty exists as a result of a class action lawsuit. Some owners opted out of that class so they could retain the right to sue individually, which exempted their cars from the warranty coverage. If you did nothing then you are a part of the lawsuit.

if you've owned your car since new and did not opt out, it sounds like you are making a good decision

My 4th just dropped! 2011 SL at 8 bars now, and I have a couple more months before the warranty expires.
