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.
Love everything about this car
2015 Nissan LeafAlex McGregor - Signal Mountain, TN09/22/2015
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.
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.
