I absolute love driving the 2013 Nissan Leaf S model that we have leased.
It reminds me of the driving dynamics of the Mini Cooper that we used to own.
The biggest problem is that I tend to drive about 15 miles above the speed limit with the Leaf because it's so quiet and smooth.
One thing that I'd wish for is better/smoother braking when regenerative braking is being applied. Another is better location of some of the control buttons on the left side of the steering wheel.
The majority of these buttons are not illuminated and are hidden by the steering wheel.
quietness, smooth, handles like its on rail, heated steering wheel and front/rear seats.
better location of some control buttons, smoother regenerative braking.
Carwing should be included in the base model S.
