A car that Nissan originally touted as having a 90-mile range, and which the EPA rated as having a 72-mile range, now shows 45 miles of range when fully charged. I have a 60-mile round-trip commute. Luckily, I can charge on both ends, or I would have had to replace it two winters ago.
Come this winter, there are going to be some cold, snowy days when this car simply isn't going to have the range to make it to work. I need
to replace this car. But no worries, I've already obtained a replacement
I put 175k miles on the car that I traded in for the Leaf. It's disappointing to me that the Leaf can't last as long. Therefore, I will not be buying another.
And you can still drive the car locally for free until she don't go no more....
The problem is, I need a car that can get me to work. But I have a 16yo on a learner's permit, so I'll keep the Leaf for him to use locally. But hopefully you understand why I will not be buying another. There are better options available today. Nissan needs to demonstrate better battery longevity if they want to compete.
