Although Consumer Reports does recommend it, I would never consider buying it as it is an all-electric car and if the battery dies for whatever reason, you are completely screwed and stranded. Also, the cost to replace these hybrid car batteries are in the thousands of dollars. Here's the CR Review: The five-seat, electric-powered Leaf has a 75-mile typical range. A full charge took 6 hours using a 240-volt outlet or 16 hours using 120 volts. At low speeds the Leaf feels quick and it is quiet and rides comfortably. Cabin access is easy, and the rear seat is fairly roomy. We measured 3.16 miles per kWh, the equivalent of 106 mpg. Running costs are extremely low: 3.5 cents per mile at the national average of 11 cents per kWh. Standard features include a heated steering wheel and seats. 2013 brings a faster on-board charger; a cheaper S version; a new electric heat pump for top-level models, which uses 30-percent less energy; and Nissan's around-view monitor.
