Someone at work pointed this out and kinda puts a damper on my expectations: https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sal ... RTSEMLSRCH
It's a Bay Area '13 SL w/premium package for $5,983! It looks like it resided in the Bay Area the whole time but they took clear pics of the wrong things. It looks like it's a 10 bar car from the blurry pics but it was built 9/2013 so I guess the previous drivers didn't take great care of the battery. It's at a Mercedes dealer so perhaps that explains the pics of the wrong things.
I filled out the form on the Autotrader page and the dealer emailed me. I emailed them back requesting they put up a clear pic of the capacity bars, including a visual aid of what I'm looking for and that it'll benefit other shoppers.
But, looking at it more carefully vs. a pic of my 11 bar car, it looks like the '13 SL that they're selling is 10 bars. Anyhow, that's pretty cheap for a dealer for such a well equipped car. It sure looks like an SL given the leather interior and it's definitely got premium due to the Bose stereo, AVM. And, it's got CHAdeMO and fog lights that are standard ont the SL. Who knows how close it is to being a 9 bar car?

Also, I have called the seller(s) a week or so after cars have sold to see if they will give me an idea of what the car actually sold for. Most have been cooperative.
I just checked for "sold" 2013 Leafs and specified any distance from my zip. There was a whopping 1 result: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-Nissan-Le ... _cvip=true
It's a '13 S w/charge package for $6,795 that's been driven in San Diego County (warm down there) built early 2/2013 month and 9 bars. So, it's not a particularly helpful reference. Mine was built 5/23/2013 and has 11 bars.
So, anyone have an answer to my original query?
