Also, how problematic is the 56% Hx state? Could it be related to the car being so warm inside even during cooler weather? W/o the AC on it's hard to keep it cool if over 65F outside.
The only advantage of L1 (120v charging) is that people have it if nothing better is available, like 240v charging.
I cannot imagine any connection between the Hx and the poor AC performance. Troubleshoot the A/C like other cars. I'll guess low refrigerant. Look for a leak if that is the problem.
I'll give you advice for your *next* battery (~ 2 years away): don't let it cook. Find shade, minimize DC fast charging, and DO NOT leave the car in a hot garage that is poorly ventilated. These LEAF battery packs do not have active thermal control, so we the owners either take steps to reduce heat loads or watch the battery degrade. Your pack is degrading at about 3x the rate of my car. Some of that might be explained by different climates and usage profile or initial battery quality, and some of it by how we treat the cars.
You are right that Nissan was foolish to take away the option to charge to less than 100% SoC. Search the forum for solutions, it has been discussed many times. The tl;dr version is to mimimize the time the pack spends at 100% SoC in general, and definitely when the pack temperature is over 5 bars (about 70 - 75F.)
