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.

To much misleading test data about the Leaf, The range is very misleading. hot weater you loose range, you turn on AC you loose range, you turn on Heat you loose range. charging time is a joke, 18-24 hours to charge on the little factory charger, and if the car is equipped with the 3600 watt only charge unit you will have to wait 7 hours, 7200 watt if equipped 4 hours and the 440 volt is 45 minutes if equipped, but the 440 charge station is hard to find in many areas, and vandals steal or damage the 7200 watt stations so you cant depend on a station to be working. no spare tire, and in the event you are in areas with heavy down pours of rain when the road has lots of water 4 inches or more there is a big risk of water getting in the batter
Great electric car for short commutes and around t
The Leaf is surprisingly fun to drive and much more spacious than I would have expected for an electric vehicle. I love not needing to fill up on gas and there are many places to charge near where I live. The only downside is the range; I easily get 80+ miles per charge, but that number goes down if you drive a lot on the highway or use the heat or A/C.
The Nissan LEAF carries up to five passengers, and the latest models have an effective range of over 100 miles on a single charge.* With an average price of $10,000 or less at CarMax, this daily driver is one of our most popular electric vehicles.
