Re: Thinking about buying a Nissan Leaf

Mon Feb 10, 2020 4:15 am

You don't buy a Leaf because you have little money and want to save money....

Even the cheapest Leaf is $5,000+. A relatively good one is $10,000. And that is for a used one that has a battery that will soon begin to deteriorate. So where is the savings?

A young person can easily save a ton of money by buying a $1500-2500 Honda civic or Toyota Corolla and drive it like crazy. Who cares that you buy gas? Gas is a necessary evil that will only take your money when you use it.

A young person is at the time of their life when they are having their adventures. Drive here, Drive there, take a drive to go camping... etc.. You don't want a Leaf. An EV is for a more settled married person that has a daily routine, and the number of daily miles is a fixed entity.
