Pros and cons for the 2018 Nissan leaf sv trim.

It wasn't clear in the beginning that the trim level of the leaf we got does not include a level 2 charging cable. Charging times on the level 1 cable can take up to 35 hours from 0-100%. This was something the dealer did not make it clear. However not needing to pay for gas is pretty awesome. The car also comes with an app to track all its statistics, making it really cool to check how our driving impacts the vehicles performance. We ended up installing a fast Charger at home, and now charging times are significantly shorter. Comfort level is good, front driver and passenger seats have a lot of good headroom. The backseats are raised higher giving people in the back nice view of the road ahead. Overall we are pretty happy with the car. It looks cool and overall helps us save gas money in the long run.

Nissan leaf, great value sweet electric vehicle.

It is an electric vehicle so I am still getting used to the range. But I really love it. There no exhaust smell, I never have to go to gas stations. It also has a really smooth ride because there are no gears. I upgraded from the basic trim so I could get apple CarPlay which is really good for keeping me from touching my phone while driving. I am also excited about the tax credit for electric vehicles.

Looks better than the previous models!

Love the fact I don't have to go to get gas! The inside is comfortable enough. The dash and center area are surprisingly well-designed and user friendly for not being a higher end car brand. My only complaint is the battery range, 150-160 isn't bad but a little more would be great on a full charge. The new outside body design is also a million times better than the old way too.
