2015 Nissan Leaf S Review
says:
I own a 2015 leaf. I bought it used from a private owner.Reason for buying a Leaf instead of a Chevy Volt was because I live less than 2 miles away from a Nissan dealer. However this dealer no longer has a Leaf Tech, therefore I have to drive over 45 miles one way for service. I am now thinking of buying a Volt.

2015 Nissan Leaf SV Review
says:
I traded in my used fit for the LEAF and have driven nearly 6,000 miles at an electric cost to me of less than $20 as most of my charging is done at public charging stations at no charge. The cargo capacity isn’t quite as good as the fit, but the ride and comfort quality is a little better. The vibration free smoothness of Electric Drive and being shiftless as there is no transmission is far superior most notably at interstate speeds or traffic lights. The car has met or exceeded all of my expectations since purchasing and the lower maintenance cost is the BIG BONUS!

Looks/Style Ranked 2015 Honda Fit EX-L w/Navi better.
"The Fit to me with its more “Chiseled” body style it slightly more appealing."
Back Seats Ranked 2015 Honda Fit EX-L w/Navi better.
"The rear seats fold several ways for several optional cargo carrying possibility. Especially almost perfectly flat in the rear cargo area that offers more cubic feet of usable space. When the Leaf rear seat are folded down, the floor is not flat but elevated by the seat backs. It’s just not quite as useful but still decent."

2015 Nissan Leaf SL Review
says:
Really fast from a start. Decent handling, but not like a European small car. Average visibility, some blind spots. Smelly at first from new plastics. Seats average comfort. The sell for this car is that it costs so little to maintain and run. We spend less than half of what we did on other cars, with so little maintenance and almost invisible fuel costs.

Air conditioner works great. Plenty of power. Can drive around town all day, but highway speeds (65-75) deplete the batteries much more quickly, as expected. The car is a joy to drive. It's quick, nim... Read More
