Hey all! I missed the Earth Day event this year (death in the family), but I had some friends and co-workers that went and said it was a success.
Update on my LEAF. I finally lost 1 capacity bar. It was a few weeks ago, a little over 11,000 miles. Now that the weather is warming back up, I still haven't seen the 12th capacity bar (reported by some). I'll go in for my 2nd yearly battery check in the next few months, so we'll see what my scores are.
Anyone else experience a capacity bar loss yet?
I know quite a few people that have gotten 2013 leases for $200-250/mo (depending on the model), and I'm thinking about going that route. Sell my 2011 and go back in for a 2013 lease. I also received the loyalty $1000 mailer, so that would be an added bonus.
Sorry you lost your capacity bar
Have you reported it at these forums to have it recorded in the forums stats on capacity losses? I think you are the first TN loss I've heard of.
I still have my 12 capacity bars, and have 24.500 miles on the clock. I expect I will be experiencing the loss at or before my second annual check once the temps get high again. I went 75 miles on a full charge today before LBW and had 5-10 left 'in the tank'
I'm now running from Hendersonvillle to Brentwood and back each day, so expect a capacity loss as I increase my mileage and daily charge level.
I've looked at the 2013's as well, but selling the 2011 LEAF maybe problematic. I've collected enough data from eBay for my blog to show they are not selling. Highest bid I've seen is $15,000 and that didn't reach the reserve price. Many cars receive zero bids. Dealers won't offer me anymore than $14,000
