I wish we knew if the 30kwh packs were improved for 2017, as Trump and friends are now forcing me to look at leasing a new EV before 1/1/18. The 2017 Leaf is one of only two new cars I can lease, because of my need for a heated steering wheel. If I could baby it a bit and get 5% per year degradation, I'd likely lease one. If it will be any more than that, it will be either the Bolt or a newer used Leaf.

I read this paragraph 3 times and I still have no idea what you are getting at, although it seems pretty reasonable to me for people to evaluate their cars during ownership for degradation.


What I mean by this paragraph is that... Yes the bars on the dash are not very informative. Leafspy has been a great help in measuring your car's battery. However, what I do not agree with is now people are debating how accurate Leafspy is, and trying to figure out its accuracy and expect really precise information of their car with Leafspy. Yes, there is a tendency for people to be "obsessed" with getting all possible information. The truth is.. Use Leafspy as a tool, like a fuel gauge, and don't expect it to be a precise scientific measurement.

And for all of you debaters..... Do not come back with the old - "they have a right to know everything because they care about their cars."

I see.

Now why in the world do you think your comfort with ignorance should be forced on others ? Would you like to ban words like Ahr or impedance because you do not understand them ?

I speak only for myself when I say I want LeafSpy to be practical, but knowing the limits in imprecision is required.

I started this post last year when it became evident my 2016 battery was losing its capacity. Since then I went to 4 bars in March with 31K miles on the car. The dealer offially checked it out, ordered a new battery and I just picked it up with the new battery. My cost was 0$. Nice. The battery was fully chargeded and had 126 miles of range which would be nice if it stayed but I Drive it on the highway and won’t get close to this. Let’s see how the new battery does.

I asked for a copy of the paperwork and it looks like the battery is a version 1 of the 30KW Battery. The price it listed was $11,356 for the new battery. I thought Nissan said they would sell a replacement battery for $5,500?

That was for the 24kwh pack, without labor.

It’s the 30 KW pack without labor. Labor was under $400.

Battery capacity is measured in kWh, not “KW”.
