I was not convinced about buying the leaf at all. It looked weird and all the popular auto mags did not seem convinced. A friend convinced us to take a second look and we bought it as a second car ... that was four months ago.
- The lease + gas is approx the cost of my previous monthly gas bill. I am basically driving a new car for no extra cost.
- - I have taken out my gas car about once a month ! I visited my Costco gas station after four months !!!
Its comfortable, spacious and very well equipped. I would have preferred to buy the SV with the BOSE + cameras in hindsight.
Bottom-line: if you commute < 60 miles / day, buy a leaf - you wont regret it.
Extremely well equipped in SV/SL trim
Accommodates DC Fast chargers
No oil changes and almost no maintenance
No gas engine
Rain sensing wipers
Rear view cameras / park sensors standard on all trims
Option for more range
