Short-time lurker, first-time poster.
Am about to take the leap into leaf ownership, and have been absorbing *all* of the info around these cool little cars. I'm located in NZ, so the majority of Leafs here are Japanese imports, and our selection is not exhaustive.
I'm looking for feedback and advice on the below Leafspy report. This car is a bargain - I think the dealer is very inexperienced, as they are listing 10 Leafs only, and ALL trim models/battery level and years (from 2011/2012/2013) Leafs (Leaves?) at the same list price. This particular one is a 2013 24G Gen 2 with 10SRS and 11 bars, with 23,000KM, Japanese head unit and Dash cluster. I've viewed the vehicle, it's in great condition, has slight bit of rust on the drivers side steering column bolt (if that's what its called? the common rust area) but should be cleanable. They include OEM NZ Charger and dash cluster conversion in the on road costs. I would get another dealer to install another carwings head unit with NZ FM band and English language available. I would also be looking to replace the stock speakers.
The catch here seems to be that the QC count would indicate this has been QC every 7KM. A rival dealer warned me that this could be done before importing to temporarily boost the SOH, by ramming through a whole bunch of QCs. I can't find much (read - basically none) info about this online so it seems like sales BS to me. Is it more likely that a Japanese owner living in an apartment only had access to quick charge station and used a quick charge every 1.5 days in the 2136 days since it was manufactured?
So I thought I would come to the real experts, who aren't invested in selling their more expensive and lower SOH leafs to me while fearmongering. What say thee, interwebs?
Any thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks all and I look forward to joining the overly-detailed ranks of Leafhood soon!
**Edit** The dealer of the vehicle below is also trying to hard-sell me on mechanical breakdown insurance as battery protection, which I also call BS on for a vehicle that has travelled as low KMs and has as high SoH as below. I think I should save the MBI costs for a rainy day, or a tire replacement. Thoughts on this get bonus points, but all signs would point to MBI being a con for EVs.
