Chart is based on 428 vehicles in TrueDelta's reliability survey.
These are the problems owners most commonly reported on TrueDelta's Car Reliability Survey. For many models not all entries have been coded yet, so focus on the relative numbers rather than the absolute numbers. Usually when people say "they all have this problem," the problem in question actually affects between 10 percent and 20 percent of all cars. We aren't counting wear items like brake pads and rotors that truly do require periodic replacement on all cars.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Materials And Workmanship of the 2020 Nissan LEAF

2020 Nissan LEAF Materials And Workmanship: Cons
2017 4dr Hatch 107-horsepower Electric
1-speed automatic FWD
The materials feel like a step down from the 2006 Prius I had previously. Especially the headliner and seats. It certainly feels quite a bit cheaper than the 2013 VW Jetta TDI wagon I had before that. As the first mainstream electric car, I get that the cost is in the battery pack and other electric drivetrain components, and that it's effectively an economy car otherwise. full 2017 Nissan LEAF review
