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.
Great Commuter Car around town
2011 Nissan LeafBrian Woodward - Las Vegas, NV05/17/2015
Awesome for running around town. Super low maintenance. Just plug in to recharge 4-5 hours @ 240 volts at home at night. Less than $40 a month for 1000 miles. Range is 50-55 miles per charge which is MORE than enough around town. Public charging in LV is free at Nissan and most public stations...Use Plugshare app for stations.
Don't need to buy gasoline, super quiet, very comfortable drive, almost no maintenance. Fantastic for driving around the city, as long as you don't need to drive more than 85 miles per day. Need to buy a used Leaf as the prices are great, about 1/3 price of new one. Extremely happy with my purchase
