Thanks for allowing me to join. I am considering purchasing a used Leaf. Is there a year better than others to consider. I am hoping for a 2012 or 2013 year. Thanks for the help!
I had a 2013 (September build date) that gave 8 years of faithful service, as others have or will say, try to find one built after March
of 2013 when they changed battery technology. You can find the build date on the drivers side when you open the door. Look for the white build sticker and see what the manufacture date of the EV is so you know for certain. If you are technical enough, consider LeafSpy so you can directly interface with the EV and know exactly how the health of the battery is, check for any DTC codes, anything suspicious, etc.
The buying guide that LeftieBiker
linked is a lot more in depth and recommended reading also.
