The Leaf is so quiet, smooth, roomy, comfortable, powerful, agile, has good visibility, and is so cheap to operate. The range (80 miles per full charge at 44 thousand miles on the odometer) is perfect for in town errands, visiting relatives, and quick jaunts into the next city. Quick charger stations have made it possible to drive across the state without worrying about running out of battery. I can't wait til there are chargers everywhere!"

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."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Black Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "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."

I drive 8-9 miles to work and 8-9 miles back home 5 days/week. As a second car this gets modest use and we have another for highway travelling. My needs seem to fit well with what this car is optimized to do."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "After driving a Leaf, it would be hard for my to go back to driving a gas car. It drives so smoothly, it is such a beautiful car with such great features (heated seats, wonderful sound system, dependable, virtually no maintenance whatsoever). My only wish is that Nissan would offer batteries with longer millage so I can take my wonderful car with me on longer trips! My daily commute is minimal and I come from a two car home, so this is the perfect car for me. If you have a long drive I would recommend a hybrid, but EVs are the best--they have speed, they absolutely glide, are perfectly quiet, and really cut your costs as far as upkeep goes. All of this and you can feel good about making a choice that is also environmentally friendly."

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "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"

My car is a 2012 and could be the reason that it only does about 76 miles per charge. I would recommend this car to someone that does not do much driving. Only to work and back. It does, however, have excellent power. It picks up speed, drives beautifully and feels great."

Extremely happy with my purchase"

    Transmission: Automatic Color: Silver Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "Quiet, smooth, reliable ride. Smooth is a huge issue in Houston where the roads are anything but smooth. I charge the car at night and it has a full 84 miles when I leave. Running a/c or heat will decrease the mileage as will high speeds but I live only 10 miles from work and everywhere I go is within 10 -15 miles from home so its great for me. I don't really like having to watch the miles if I have a lot of errands but I have never gotten really low even on my busiest day. I haven't noticed any change in my electric bill so I am pretty happy overall."

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!!!"

Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "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!!!"

    Transmission: Automatic Color: White Avg. Vehicle Review: 4.4 (82 reviews) "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!"

I am a Leaf on the Wind

2011 Nissan Leaf Linza - Houston, TX 01/26/2015

Love everything about this car

2015 Nissan Leaf Alex McGregor - Signal Mountain, TN 09/22/2015

It's the best all around car on the market. Plenty of power, handles like an expensive sports car, most expensive maintenance cost is a tire rotation, instruments well thought out and easy to read, comfortable- all this and it costs pennies per gallon of gas equivalent.
