2013 Nissan LeafKarla Villanueva - Las Vegas, NV02/02/2016
This is a great little second car to tool around town in but you can NEVER take a road trip in it. Getting to LA from Las Vegas is impossible for me to do. Don't trust the mileage range, go off the battery life because there's NO WAY this car gets 100 miles per charge (more like 80). DO YOUR HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU BUY. I didn't and trusted the dealer to tell me everything I needed to know. Now I'm learning the hard way what Level 1/2 charging is and how I can kick myself for not choosing a model with the quick charge port (it'as not an aftermarket product). Also, think about how much you drive before you buy. Thank goodness I kept my gas car.
Possibly your new best friend!
2013 Nissan LeafEric Morgan - Saint George, UT12/01/2016
Ok, let's address the elephant in the room: range. On an 80% charge I average between 40-50 miles and 50-60 miles on a 100% charge, in city driving conditions. If this does not meet your round trip commute needs or you don't have the option of charging at your destination then this is probably not the car for you. If you fall within these parameters then read on....
We drive this car about 600-700 miles a month. If compared to the city MPG of our gas compact sedan that's about $70 in savings a month which is half the cars payment and we only put $1500 down! I work with people who commute 36 miles a day, and spend more than my payment just on gas. We live in a condo complex and the outlet I use to charged is billed to my HOA!
Nissan Leaf - A review
2012 Nissan LeafJason Caswell - Colorado Springs, CO01/12/2017
This car is a great get around car. There are many pros and a few cons that I can see so far. The charging time on a 440V (quick charge) is about 30m for a full charge, for a 110V I plug in at night and it is ready in the morning. This car is perfect for just getting around, especially with the growing number of charging stations that are popping up.
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.
