Hmmm, currently the auto aftermarket thrives on people loving their cars but wanting more from them.
Very true. But that's augmenting a car, not replacing vital components because they failed to be durable over time.

I would say going from a 24 to a 40 an upgrade.

Not saying they aren't out there but going from 24 kwh to 24 kwh is... "interesting"... Paying for that? Completely out of the question!

That is not what most of these places are doing. To me is simply wanting more from what was there when new but I already said that. I would have gladly kept my 2011 had it the range I have now. The extra power I couldn't care less about.

If you think about it, the Leaf is the only EV in which you can upgrade your battery tech.

Many 24kW Leafs have moved to 40s and 62s.

In 5 more years, wouldn't it be cool to upgrade our 62s to 100?

I've been looking at cheap used Leaf's for around town driving and I've been ignoring the 2011 and 2012 models due to the cabin heating system. Is it not as bad as some make it out to be? Are they unreliable or just an unnecessary power draw in summer (easily fixed) or am I making too much out of this?

Dave lives in a climate that makes it possible to turn off the climate control (after you install that Off switch!) a substantial amount of the time - although he might find himself leaving it on for defogging a lot of the time anyway. The problem with the Gen I Leaf is that it has both the least range and the highest power drain from the heating system.

Also note that Dave is saying that he'd need more range to enjoy having the 2011 again.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

I think the ONE thing that I would miss is heat and A/C buttons so I can defrost on A/C which uses very little power and not run heat at all and keep windows clear. Now mind you, its blowing cold air on you but I have been experimenting with toggling the heat button on and off. Not sure its better? But my thermostat doesn't seem to work and that was also true of my 40 kwh LEAF. In Summer I run around with A/C set at 88 (BTTF thing) and it still gets plenty cold.
