Battery check indicates ahr = 59.50
Soh = 90% (372.58v)
Hx = 90.83%
Is this normal for a 2013? Or has it been roughly handled? Original owner is from San Jose, Ca.
Hard to say, but here are the stats of the '13 Leaf SV that I'm leasing that hitting end of 2 year lease on 7/27/15. Build month was 6/2013.
SOH=89% (wasn't at full charge)
I live in a part of south SJ that's hotter than most of the rest of it.
I avoided leaving the car at above 100% for extended periods of time, and some days, I'd only charge to 80% or somewhere under 100%.
However, on some days, often on a weekend, the battery would sit at 80% or a little above overnight.
It usually was in underground parking at work and within a garage at home. I only got Leaf Spy recently, but it looks like the garage doesn't cool down that much at night in the summer, so the battery seems to end up staying kinda on the warmer side (say 75+ F) while garaged overnight. Perhaps, if I left it outside at night, it'd cool down to lower temps, but then it (along w/paint and interior) could get baked in the morning.
The used '13 SV (was a lease return) I bought w/a build month of 5/2013 seems to have better values (took these on 7/16/15). Unclear where it actually resided in the Bay Area but seems to have been registered in Saratoga and always went to a Nissan dealer in Santa Clara for service.
Hope you're getting a good price on it.
