Looking at a similar car, gone from 76-88.5% SOH.... how it been since the update, has it started around the same?Local Nissan dealer successfully applied the firmware mod today. I acknowledge that %SOH is unreliable, but it has changed from 79.6 to 90.6 and my lost 1st bar has returned.
Car dealers not doing what they said they've done ? Who would have thought... Peugeot claimed they'd replaced the brake vacuum pump in my Ion in the mandatory safety recall in 2016(ish) yet in 2020 the pump failed catastrophically and the husk that I pulled out to replace myself at my own expense looked like the factory original with 10 years rust on it.Hi all - I drive a 2016 30kWh LEAF - picked it up a year ago, about 11000 miles on the odometer, 15000 now, battery SOH around 81%. It lost it's first battery bar a few months ago - I checked on LEAFSpy pro and I'm on the old firmware code (4NR4A) , but I spoke to the local Nissan dealership today and they claim that the update was already done when the car was in last year for an issue with the heater. Is this possible that it's been done but LEAFspy shows the old code?
I think you guys need to be a bit more forceful when Nissan are trying to bullshit you. Axel has just had the same problem over in another thread:I've booked it in with them for an MOT and for them to recheck the update, but the person I spoke to on the phone seemed sceptical - according to their records it's been done - though they didn't mention it to me when it went in for the heater fix so I'm a bit suspicious. I guess I can show them the LEAFSpy reading when I'm there to try and persuade them but if that doesn't work I'm not sure what my best approach is? Really hope I can get the 12th battery bar back as apparently it's worth about £1000 or so for potential resale value!
For those interested these are shots of my battery health over the last 11months, i cant find the original shot but when i bought the car it was on approx 94% SoH @ 24,000 miles
I have access to a lot of free charging either via Granny lead @ work, 3kw at a local park and ride or Rapid charges when out and about. The free rapids are getting less and less common but still happen and are needed for longer trips, like London and back in a day or such

The garage have only just sourced it themselves so I don't know what it's been up to for the last few months, but I assume that's probably quite a common issue with everyone at the moment. The petrol car I'm part xing it for got a flat tyre from accidently being parked on a sharp stone for 4 months and then a dead battery from not being driven for the same! Husband has just got a new job though with the daily miles, hence the move to EV. I'm reckoning he will probably use about 60% of the battery each day, maybe more in winter so planning on charging it every night at home on a 7kw charger on the Octopus Go tariff. I don't know much about the best way to preserve battery life, I guess knowledge is still evolving but any tips based on our projected usage would be much appreciated.Welcome spangle dangle!
Looking at the stats from leafspy that leaf has been plugged in twice a day roughly to a level 2 charger so must have always been kept pretty well charged and not run down too low very often at all.
It's SoH is not far off what mine is at 58k miles. Had it sat still for long during lockdown at all?
