Agree. I'd also pass.
Keep looking. The price is too high for that much degradation, an early build and as equipped. It seems '13s built before ~4/2013 have worse battery degradation than ones afterward. The Georgia heat didn't help and the crappy batteries didn't either.

. A year argo, I could've gotten a '13 SV w/premium and QC + LED packages for $11K to $11.5K.
The aforementioned used '13 Leaf with 5/2013 build date I still have and here are its current stats taken 30 minutes ago:
AHr = 57.92
SOH = 88%
Hx = 87.36%
odo = 36,192 mi
My used Leaf previously resided somewhere in the Bay Area. Was leased in Santa Clara, CA and serviced there. Was registered w/Saratoga, CA DMV. Of course, I still have all 12 capacity bars, but I wouldn't be surprised if I lose one by the time summer's over.
