    4CADD556-E25E-4151-8E14-C3268CAC1BDF.jpeg is anyone noticing their range just steadily dropping? LR RWD with 12k miles. Only getting 305 now at 100% not the 325.

    there was a batch with a battery problem, that are being called back for repairs. check with your SC if your car matches this. the symptoms are exactly the same as what you are seeing

    Where do you charge to normally, or what to you have your percentage set to?

    Some RWD owners had their 325 update taken away and more recent updates changed the max back to 310. Maybe this is what you're seeing?

    That kind of drop is not acceptable IMO. I haven't seen any degradation as of yet and still at 325 miles..

    Have you done a calibration charge: < 20% to 100%.

    My range dipped fairly significantly at about 5000 miles. I ran it down to 10%, then charged up to 100% and got back to very close to my normal 310 mile range.

    Caveat: calibration is not mentioned in the owners manual. However, there are a lot of sources that recommend the "calibration charge" -- and it worked for me. ;)

    I've got LR AWD....about 12k miles, charge to 90% daily, to 100% approx. once a week, and have noticed zero reduction in estimated miles resulting from that charging.
    dirtyt3sla suggestion above may be right - 275 @ 90% wouldn't be unusual for me. The slider can also be just a bit off if its been recently moved, and only sitting at 89% instead of 90%. When mine is right on 90% it results in a charge estimated at 278-279 miles. If I leave it sit too long vampire drain can knock it back a mile. But mine usually tops out at 306-308 for 100%, always has.

    OP's graph is from 7000 to 11000 miles.
    His graph might have looked like yours at the beginning.

    Yeah the point was to show the steady decline over the last 4,000 miles.

    Back to 309 now. Got as high as 319 with the software push. Has been a steady backwards decline to where I was prior to the software increase 309. Now just flat. I see some who have it some who don't. With the changes to what I think are the available battery it makes it a little more difficult to calculate the degradation. Mine is also a 2017. That might also play a role? Now just guessing.

    Not sure what to think. Happy to have driven 41k :)

    Are you range charging this often? If so I that is your problem. We have over 25,000 miles and have a steady 285 miles on a 90% charge.
