The car drives very smoothly and quietly and accelerates quickly -- I commute to Baltimore and DC and the car has the zip needed to get onto the highways. I love that I never waste time at the gas station or getting an oil change. The trunk is deep, with lots of room for groceries or suitcases.
The price was great, the style adorable, however Nissan claims that the Leaf is able to get 80 or so miles to a charge, and that NEVER happens! Once you hit the freeway, the mileage drops like crazy and if I was able to get 40 or 50 it was a miracle! I hated the feeling of ALWAYS feeling like I was about to run out of power and had to find somewhere to park and charge for several hours since charging is not a fast process. If there were more fast charge stations or the ability to get at least 100 miles per charge I would've loved this car! I loved the IDEA of the car since I am a staunch environmentalist, but the reality drove me crazy so I traded it in after one month for a gas car! Very Sadly!!!
This car is impressive. Lots of great technology onboard, roomy interior front and back, adequate amount of cargo room. Stealthy quietness at all speeds, only wind noise and the slight sound of high voltage moving you forward. Can easily get you through a several days of market runs, picking up and dropping off kids at school, etc. without the need to charge. Once you begin using highways or freeways, you'll need to consider your level of charge. My morning commute is 60 miles of freeways and some streets and I can make it with a few miles to spare, plug into a standard outlet while at work, and make it back home without worry. This car is not designed for long, high speed journeys! Be sure to get one with the quick charge port!!!
