2011 Nissan Leaf SV 4dr Hatchback (3-phase, 4-pole electric DD)
We've only had our 2011 Leaf for two weeks but already we are in love with this car. Gas has gone up $.20 since my last fill up in my old car, so I'm already saving more money.
The car has great "get up and go", it isn't anything like the hybrids you hear about not having any power to them. I can leave everyone at the stop light if I want to. The first few days I found myself speeding frequently.
The interior is very comfortable, even for adults in the back seat. It sits up a little higher than the sedan I traded in, which is nice.
This car is all electric so it's not for someone looking to drive it a long way. I only use it to commute to work and run errands so it's perfect.
No oil changes!
No emissions checks!
Interior is made using recycled materials
Easy to use controls
