It very well could be the original pack. There are 2013's and newer with 100,000 miles or more with 12 bars. The dash tells you next to nothing. LEAF Spy is what you need.away2maine wrote: ↑Tue Mar 03, 2020 7:38 amHey there!
Just starting down the path of a first Leaf purchase. I began with a focus on 2016 SV/SL for the 30kWh battery and the longer warranty. Then I noticed a couple interesting pieces and wanted to check with the pros here.
I also stumbled across a 2014 with 12,500 miles and 12 bars showing on the cluster listed for $8,500. Seems reasonable that this might be a new battery, but is there any way to confirm this? I would presume that this is likely a 24kWh replacement, but, once again, is there a way to confirm this?
Then I'm trying to determine if I push towards the 2016 SV/SL option, These 3 pieces range from 43k-50k miles. In this group, I'm trying to determine whether it makes more sense to pursue 9 bars, which should drop to 8 within the 96/100 capacity warranty or 10 bars (which of course could be a day away from 9). FWIW, the 10 bar Leaf is the 43k miles piece.
This is the first of several questions likely to come...
I would be more interested in how the car was stored, charged, driven, etc. Having the car sit for years at 40-50% SOC would have a relatively small impact over time.
