...Leaf owners are cheap as hell.
Beg to disagree. Ordered my LEAF in 2010 for a $99 deposit. Back then a deposit on a non-existent car was a huge risk or lunacy, your call. When they became available, my supposed 2011 model became a 2012, and I took delivery Feb, 2012. Out the door it was almost exactly $40K, not a small amount now or back in 2012. I was cheap enough to not get a Model S or Roadster, but $40k is still a pretty good bag o’ shekels, at least pour moi.
I am sorry, I did not want to insult Leaf owners as all being "cheap". We are a very select group of technology, ecology, and anti-petroleum enthusiasts who have chosen to adopt the "Leaf Lifestyle"... I have no problem plugging and unplugging the car daily. I have no problem with the car's limitations.
However, I refer to Leaf owners as being "cheap" in the sense that (on a daily basis) I read posts of people complaining about some minor maintenance costs, or stating that they hate the car and will get rid of it if they have to spend more than $500 on a repair. Also, I have always been a proponent of getting a 240 Volt "EVSE" charger in your home. I have continued to get complaints from posters when I stated that a home charger was "The only way to go" if you own a Leaf. So many comments have been written that they have a right to not spend such high sums for installation if they do not "have the money"...
So, in those cases i say that Many Leaf drivers are "cheap". If you do not have the money for a suggested charger upgrade, then don't complain about a good suggestion. Just keep on charging on your slow charger.
