H e l l o !
I got a 2015 Leaf S on Saturday. I like it. I wanted at least a 2015 S for the eco, B mode, and cruise. I did not need nor trust Carwings/Nissan Connect.
I spent a month talking to the three area Nissan dealers that had new and CPO leafs and never got a good deal. Even with the 10k discount and 7.5k rebate, the dealers were jacking up the prices so best I could get was 18k net on a Leaf S. The lease offers were total duds. I did not think another 23 miles of range was worth it. Local used dealers had older stock and were no better on average.
Finally I broke down and bought it on Carvana. I never thought I would do such a thing. Red and 24000 miles, beautiful really. Delivery was painless and the thing looks and feels showroom new. Whatever they are doing to recondition the cars is worth it.
So far so good. I drive it to work either 18 fast miles or 24 slow miles and either way uses 20% of charge. Over the weekend I drove 23 miles to the lake and back on 25% of charge. That seems right on the EPA estimate. New charge guess o meter is about 95 miles. I charge at work on an L2.
did not work with my old obd (Veepeak) so I bought a new one coming in tomorrow, will check stats then.
With current prices, a used Leaf is a great deal. I'm tempted to buy another.
What do you think, is there any more reason to take it to a Nissan dealer ?
PS. Got the LELINK obd tool and it works fine. whew. Stats seem average .... ?
SOH= 90% 385.3V
362 QC (seems like a lot ?)
202 GIDs 71.9%
15.7 KWh remain
(just got home from 17mi at 70mph)
