- 2016 Leaf (not sure if it's S, SV, or SL)
- VIN 1N4BZ0CP7GC313665 (4th character B, so it's 30KWH).
- Price: $11,830
- Miles: 90460
- Capacity bars: 9
- BMS update: unknown
- Driven in hot states?: unknown
I plan to run leafspy on the car tomorrow, and check for BMS, vehicle history to check for hot states, title issues etc.
I am a delivery driver who drives around, 12k miles a year in San Diego, which is usually pretty moderate climate. What are my chances of losing a bar of capacity and so qualify for the 100k, 8 year, warranty and get a new 40 kWh battery?
(setting ethics aside for a moment) if I quick charge it regularly, can I increase the chances of dropping a bar?
If I don't qualify for the warranty, what the likelyhood it will meet my minimum standard of having 65 miles range per charge in 4 years?
