Smooth As Silk
By billsea on


2011 Nissan Leaf SL 4dr Hatchback (electric 1DD)


I've really enjoyed owning and driving this car, which is now up to 10,000 miles. It is incredibly smooth, quiet and generally effortless to drive. The interior feels large, with plenty of room in the back for adults. The storage area is ample for the around-town usage dictated by the range. The range is occasionally a nuisance, but that's increasingly mitigated by charge stations. When my trips are well within the range, I have fun with the torque and the low center of gravity. So far it's getting about 30 miles per dollar, a fascinating new metric that really puts the sucking sound in the front of our minivan in perspective. (It's five times more expensive to drive that one a mile.)

Best Features

Smooth, quiet, cheap miles

Worst Features

Could use a better horn, a light in the charge port, and a better menu for browsing songs on USB devices.
