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
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 perfect for my needs. It has a range of about 70 miles on a full charge, which works very well for me. I don't usually need to go much further in a day. When I do need to travel I can rent a car. The interior is spacious for all passengers, the rear has a lot of space, too, and I can fit longer objects with no problem. Its a great car!
