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.
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!!!
Good bye gas, hello electric!

If you have a daily commute of less than 30 miles round trip, this is the car for you. If you are tired of paying a local gas station the ever-changing prices of gas, this is the car for you. If you just love technology, this is the car for you. Yes, it's not a tesla, but if you don't have the $100,000 to plop down on one, then get this one and you will have an insight into what it is like to own a tesla....it's pretty awesome!!
