While there is another thread on range loss, it is 6 pages long and is now spanning multiple issues, so I wanted to focus this thread on the 1st gen Leafs (Leaves?) still in service and to ask what owners plan to do going forward. Mine is a 2012 Leaf, seven years old, with 80,000 miles. I charge to 100% at 2am nightly. The car retained the full 12 bars for the first four years, then began a slow decline. I have only used Level 3 chargers about once a year. It has recently declined to 8 bars capacity, so the original 74 mile range is now about 50 miles in summer and 36 miles now in winter when below freezing and using the heater as well as seat and steering wheel warmers. The Kelly Blue Book value is around $4000. A battery replacement with core swap is $6500. It obviously makes no sense to spend that kind of money to restore its range back from 50 to 74 miles when I can get a new 40 kWh Leaf for $18000 after rebates and tax credits. (When the 40 kWh Leafs came out they were dumping the remaining new 30 kWh Leafs here for $10000, so next March I expect the 40 kWh Leafs to have similar deep discounts.) At this point the only option I see is to trade it in for a new 200+ mile car next year. I can't sell it to anyone in its current state. With a 60 kWh car, if it loses 1/3 to even 1/2 of its range after 8-10 years, I still have a fully functional maintenance-free car with ample range. Half of a 74 mile range is approaching golf cart status. What are other early adopters experiencing with their cars and what is your go-forward plan?
