2011 Nissan LeafBrian Woodward - Las Vegas, NV05/17/2015
Awesome for running around town. Super low maintenance. Just plug in to recharge 4-5 hours @ 240 volts at home at night. Less than $40 a month for 1000 miles. Range is 50-55 miles per charge which is MORE than enough around town. Public charging in LV is free at Nissan and most public stations...Use Plugshare app for stations.
If you stumble upon a USED Leaf: Go for it, specially if your commute isn't longer than 50-60 miles. Look at the vertical bars just to the right of the "range estimate" on dashboard. There should be 12 vertical bars. Just as with laptop batteries of cell phones with time, the battery looses some of its capacity to retain a charge. 2011 and 2012 Leafs in used market may be missing 1 or 2 bars. So look for this when you go for a test drive. SUPER quiet!! Suspension is very nimble, barely feel road bumps. Very simple uncomplicated vehicle operation. I plan on keeping it until battery degrades too much (maybe 5 years). Then I'll go to Nissan dealership and have them install new battery pack ($100/month) and car will be paid for.
Good bye gas, hello electric!
2012 Nissan LeafSCOTT HENRY - SAN MARCOS, CA07/13/2016
If you have a daily commute of less than 30 miles round trip, this is the car for you. If you are tired of paying a local gas station the ever-changing prices of gas, this is the car for you. If you just love technology, this is the car for you. Yes, it's not a tesla, but if you don't have the $100,000 to plop down on one, then get this one and you will have an insight into what it is like to own a tesla....it's pretty awesome!!
