Went to look at a couple of ION's at the weekend, and have subsequently ordered the OBDLink LX. What sort of SOH should I expect to find?

The car is almost 5yrs old and looks to be in a well cared for condition. It's only had two Peugeot dealer stamps as 14k miles and then again at 28k miles so I'm assuming that the warranty will have lapsed if the services hasn't been completed annually?

Thanks

My 2012 i-MiEV has 45,000 miles and reports a 38.5 Ah SoH.

If you're looking at MY2013 or later, be aware that the PSA clones have smaller batteries (80 cells instead of 88). Allegedly, the revised cell chemistry is longer-lasting, but I've not seen evidence to prove nor disprove that.

I suspect that a major benefit of the later chemistry is as much to do with improved manufacturing process control aks reduced impurities: that will show up as reduced voltage/capacity variations in the pack as the battery ages.
