I picked up leaf30 Acenta 2 years ago with 91% SoH for 15k. Today is at 88% SoH and continues to meet needs. If the range is sufficient - 100 miles, go for it.Hi,
I’m looking to purchase a second hand Nissan Leaf. I’ve found a 2017 acenta, 30kwh, 27,000 miles with a SOH of 94.89%. It’s £10,850, is this a reasonable price?
94% for 24k is odd.. could have 6A firmware thoughPersonally the soh looks high and I'm wondering if some dealers are wise to what's going on and maybe resetting the BMS, running it a little and letting the soh drop before sticking it up. There's one case of this I've seen mentioned where the soh dropped like a rock over 2 months after the bought it and finally settled down with 1 bar lost...
Only the nissan tool can reset this as well so only their dealers and a nissan specialist are likely to have it and the ability to do it.
OP said 27k and SOH is actually nearer 95%, which means even odder I think.94% for 24k is odd
My 2016 30kWh Tekna was at 92.4% at 24k miles when I bought it three months ago, and although it has fluctuated a bit in the three months since then with charging and use patterns it is currently sitting at 91.6%. So a year newer for 2% better seems reasonable.94% for 24k is odd.. could have 6A firmware though
My personal experience, we picked up Leaf at 91% SoH, firmware update pushed it to 96% and 2 years on, it is at 88%.My 2016 30kWh Tekna was at 92.4% at 24k miles when I bought it three months ago, and although it has fluctuated a bit in the three months since then with charging and use patterns it is currently sitting at 91.6%. So a year newer for 2% better seems reasonable.
When cared for (battery not regularly overheated or left at high SoC for a long time) degradation rates on Leaf's seem to be related to age more than mileage.
4NR6A firmware when new, reported over 100% SoH for months. For most when mine (4NR4A back then) was in low 90s theirs was still in high 90s. Even after update to 4NR4C, mine never when as high as most with 6AYes it's for the firmware but the later 2017 ZE0's had it from the factory.
Lockdown has taken a big bit on cars and I think we will see lots slightly lower than they should be and climbing back up quickly as they get used more often.
Semi decent values ? 7k depreciation for Leaf30 in 2 years - that's at par with any other car to be honestIt's only going to get worse as the firmware patch can't fix the underlying issue so the 40kwh packs will be the way forward and an easy warranty win for nissan as 30kwh packs still hold semi decent used values.
