Love driving it but feel limited.

I absolutely love the Nissan leaf. The ease of driving it and it feels like a regular car without having to worry about stopping for gas. It can be a pain having to limit where you go based on miles away but not a big deal if it is not your only car. I have two children 3 and under and they are comfortable in it but the trunk is not very big for strollers and such. Only other complaint is that using heat or air takes battery so if you use it you cannot go as far.

The inconsistency in the technology of the Nissan leaf electric.

The battery life on this car is short lived. When it comes to dying distance it is not sustainable Nissan really got this wrong. It forgot attempts to drive a distance that should be in range. I drives it around 16 miles a day and I it and the battery life drains quickly even when follow electric car protocols. There are many blind spots that make it very difficult to see at times and the brake system does not work very well especially in the rain.

The best(efficient) car that I have owned in fifty-two years!

The leaf is by far the best car that I have ever owned. First, it is electric. Secondly it has all the modern technology for 2018. Thirdly, it is dependable. I have never had any mechanical problems since purchasing the car on Nov. 04, 2016. Lastly, I have not bought gas since Nov. 04, 2016. In closing it is most economical I have ever owned.
