What Our Members Are Saying about the Personal Experiences of the Nissan LEAF

Nissan LEAF Personal Experiences: Neutral
2012 4dr Hatch 107-horsepower Electric
1-speed automatic FWD
After driving an All-electric Car like the LEAF, I cannot imagine myself going back to a gas guzzler. I would probably stop driving if I were forced to give up my Electric LEAF. It is so empowering to be able to charge up my own car in my own private garage or driveway. And have the great feeling of knowing that every single morning I have a full tank of electrons. Two other important notes:
If you have two cars in the family, do NOT think of this Electric LEAF as your second car. This will immediately become your primary number one car and your other car will become your second car, only to be used if this LEAF is already out on the road. This is an important differentiation to make.
"Range" is only an issue to those that do NOT drive an EV and the dumb car journalists. As an EV driver, you will always know what your range is because the LEAF shows you on the dashboard. And, because you plug in every night, you have a full tank every single morning.
