No, that's not true - The 'km left meter' doesn't tell you anything at all about the health of the battery or how much charge you put into it. It is a computer generated number which approximates how far you can travel on the energy left in the battery pack based entirely on how much energy you used to travel the previous 25 kms
- With no change at all in the battery, you could get 90 kms up to 140 kms after a full recharge, based entirely on your last 25 kms of travel
While it *is* true that if your battery somehow had recently lost 20% of it's normal capacity, you would also expect to see a roughly 20% drop in your meter, it's very unlikely that this would happen over a month or two or three
Personally, I would not waste my time (or money) taking it to the dealer for a 'check' as they are very likely to charge you money and tell you nothing. If/when your battery begins to fail, you will know because it will no longer be recharging to 16 bars - So long as it's recharging to a full 16 bars Mitsu isn't going to do anything to your car . . . . except charge you to tell you that it's operating normally
