Great electric car for short commutes and around t

2012 Nissan Leaf Derek Cissell - Woodland, CA 08/04/2015

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.

Great car for what it is intended for.

2012 Nissan Leaf Daniel T - Duarte, CA 11/29/2016

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!!!

Owning this car requires a lifestyle change

2013 Nissan Leaf Karla Villanueva - Las Vegas, NV 02/02/2016

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.
