From memory, I think it was down 3 bars. Sounds like a lemon, eh?
Not a lemon, just more used. It is not a new car. It is used. In the Pacific coast climate, a 2014 will lose about 2% of capacity a year/19000km with ideal care. Most cars don't get ideal care, of course. So the best case for a 2014 was about 8% loss, or 92% true SOH. More common might be 88% or 90%. Instead, this one is at about 86%, or about 14% loss. The car is less valuable. Think of the battery as being at least a year or two years older than 2014, maybe a bit more. If priced right and you like the rest of the car, I'd suggest buying it. Assuming it has not yet lost a capacity bar, the dealership needs to drop the price for you to be interested. If it has lost a capacity bar, subtract more. This picture shows a three bar loser. I very much doubt if there are three missing capacity bars on this car.
