SOLD. 2011 Leaf SL for sale by original owner $3500

Mon Feb 08, 2021 12:03 pm

I'm buying a new car and will be selling my 2011 Leaf SL. I'm asking $3500. It has the original battery which is down to 8 bars and 34,012 miles on the odometer. It's in very good condition and has never been in an accident or collision. It has all the original equipment, including, of course, the CHAdeMO port. I'm the original owner and the car has been garaged most of its life. I'm in Los Altos (San Francisco Bay Area). The sale is dependent on completion of the purchase of the new car (delivery of which is expected by mid to late February). It has 11000 miles on the tires. Here's the link to the Craiglist Ad: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/cto/d/ ... 3112.html
If interested, contact me by PM or the telephone number in the CL ad.

That is a nice looking car. I would be interested if I needed another vehicle for short trips. I hope someone can get some use out of it. What are you replacing it with?

It's old LEAFs, that are in great shape like this one, that hopefully someone smart will scoop up and put a 62 kWh pack into it. If I lived in California, I would have already made an offer on this one.

Agreed a nice good candidate for a battery upgrade. If it was a 2013 I'd buy it and pay for shipping. As is, I don't want to deal with the liquid heater setup and the old style battery connections. GLWS, though, it's a nice car.

Enjoy! Please give us a report about the Volvo after you have a chance to use if for a while.

I sold it for asking, pending the purchase of the new car. I had two other people offer to buy it sight unseen for that price on the first two days, so I must have had it underpriced. Still, it was a lot more than the Volvo dealer was offering for trade-in. I took the craigslist ad down and I edited this one to say SOLD.

Congrats! Yeah, older degraded Leafs have significantly depreciated, but people often devalue them more than they'll fetch on the market. I had a similar experience selling one of mine for $3750--gone in 3 days with lots of interest.

$5k seems to be the cutoff for these older Leafs. Less than that and they sell easily. That much or more and they don't.

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

That actually makes market sense to me, for a person whose alternative is e.g. an Uber ride.

I say 'actually' because so much of the EV market is irrational
