You mean the VPS for Reverse and Forward? Technically, those can be disabled without dealer help
Are you sure? I just tried it on my 2020 SL Plus and while it will turn it off when you switch to the mode, you can still turn recirculate back on afterwards by just pressing the button and it stays on recirculate. I actually found it to be a nice feature coming from my old 2013 SV. It would be weird that it only works in the SL trim and not the other S or SV trim?* Unlike the 2018 I drive, the 2020 will not allow Recirculate to be engaged when the ventilation is set to Floor + Defrost. We have a 2020 SV+ as well, and I'm irritated at this.

This would be my first EV after many years of driving minivans. I will keep the 2018 Odyssey for the 750 mile trips to visit grand kids.
Middle Tennessee weather is fairly mild, compared to other places I have lived (Buffalo & Dallas).
My wife & and I would use the Leaf for local errands, usually around 20 miles round trip with lots of small hills. Average one trip per day.
We did a test drive of 2021 and really liked the ease of entry and exit for our older bodies. We don't really need another vehicle, but want the EV experience.
Charging would be at home where electric is $0.084 per KWH.
Autotrader shows a few 2020 new leftovers in a 200 mile radius that look like a good value for me. We would qualify for the full $7500 rebate.
Are there any significant drawbacks to a new 2020 leftover in my situation? Other advice and suggestions welcome.
Someone else here checked it and it didn't work for them, either. I'm thinking early and late revision software on the recirculate issue - with the later version being the bad one. There was a thread here a while back about someone not being able to turn off the weird sonar-like reverse VSP. We don't care enough about it to try.You mean the VPS for Reverse and Forward?
