Don't need to buy gasoline, super quiet, very comfortable drive, almost no maintenance. Fantastic for driving around the city, as long as you don't need to drive more than 85 miles per day. Need to buy a used Leaf as the prices are great, about 1/3 price of new one. Extremely happy with my purchase
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.
Not bad, not great. I like trying different cars- and yes, it is cool not to stop at gas pumps. But it is NOT cool to be so limited by range. I like to camp; I rent cars for camping/road trips. The economic value of this car is great if you are SOLELY OKAY with being limited to about 100 miles (plus or minus pending driving style) AND THEN a 8-10 hour charge once you're back home. I charge mine while I sleep, and drive a motorcycle, so I don't need my Nissan all the time. Would I do this again? No. Would I be unhappy keeping my car for one more year? No. Is it the best car ever? Only if you are OK w/ its limited use and expensive battery replacement when the time comes.
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.
