Great price! Congrats on the car. I love my 2019 Leaf S. I picked up the factory all weather mats and weathertech trunk mat (2018 version fits perfectly) and can recommend those.
Cool, I'll check them out. It came with the carpeted trunk mat but the weather tech is probably better if I want to throw beach stuff back there.

First post. Leased mine a week ago and picked it up this Tuesday. I leased it in MA and they delivered it to NH so they could register it and swap the plates at my town office.

Leaf SL, $260/month, 36 months, 12000 miles. $3500 trade in and $1000 down. They gave me a boat load in incentives.

I got my first EV, a 2015 Nissan LEAF S two days ago. I drove it from the dealer to my house some 160 miles. I had to figure out charging, charging apps, and paying for charging on the fly. It has 46k miles on it and I paid $8788.00 after financing. At the dealership it had 12 bars and today it had only 11 :cry: I commute 25 miles round trip a day. My other car is a 2010 Prius IV, so I am missing some of the nicer to have things.

There are two possibilities for that unfortunate loss of a capacity bar:

* Coincidence. It is about time for that to happen, given the age and climate. Mileage isn't a direct factor, but if all those miles included Quick Charges, then that makes it more likely. If you did several QCs in warm weather driving it home, that could have 'tipped it over the edge' to 11 bars.

* Battery Management System (BMS) reset. The dealer, or anyone with the right diagnostic tool, can reset the BMS to temporarily restore all lost bars. This lasts only a few weeks usually. If you lose a second bar any time this Spring, then it's a BMS reset.

Are you saying that I should expect to lose more bars soon? Or that I have been ripped off by the dealer? Or that I should go get another BMS reset?

I'm saying that IF you lose another bar anytime soon, then THAT would indicate that the BMS was reset. If the car stays at 11 bars for the rest of the year at least, then a reset, while still possible, is much less likely - it would then be more likely that the pack was 'teetering on the edge' of losing a bar, and the trip home tipped it. Did you do any fast charges? Was the weather hot?

IOW, wait a few weeks and see. And there is no reason to reset the BMS - it does nothing real to capacity, only to what is displayed as the capacity.

I did two quick charges on the way home, but it was in the low 60's and the battery temperature was five bars.

Then it's either an unfortunate coincidence or a BMS reset. Time will tell.
