Marckubu: I've read the warranty starts the day the car is sold to the first owner. I used Carfax to get my vehicle's history before I bought it, so that's what I'm working off. Surely your Nissan dealer would be able to give you that information, too.

And I got my Leaf in early October, a 2015 SV with 3500 miles for $11,200 plus tax. I've been very pleased with it so far.

For new owners of used Leafs: I learned that SiriusXM extends free 2-month trials to new owners of cars with their radios. So I'm playing around with that for a bit. I don't expect to renew, but it's fun to check out.

That's pretty much it. The day the first owner "takes delivery" of the car is called the "in-service date" and that is used as the start of the factory warranty.

If you decide to get a Sirius/XM subscription, do not give them your credit card number. Pay by check and pay the $2 service fee. They are not a super-ethical company.

I bought mine just last month from Boulder Nissan in Boulder, CO. It's a 2013 SV, manufactured in 8/2013 and originally sold from the same Boulder Nissan in 10/2013. I bought it CPO with 28,500 miles on it. It appears to be in excellent condition, and the battery is holding up very well, based on the LeafSpy data.

AHr = 60.07
SOH = 91%
GIDS = 261 at indicated 100% on the dash, 97.2% SOC from LeafSpy

Picked up my 2014 Leaf S three weeks ago, and love it! It was a Georgia lease with 21k miles on it, and wound up on a Ford dealer's lot here in Northern Utah. It has the QC package, which is the only option I really wanted.
I have about 22.5k on it now, and it still has all twelve bars. A wonderfully quiet, smooth ride: my last car was a Smart ED, so quite a difference.

Congratulations!! Would you mind sharing what you paid for it?

We are on Day 6 with our new-to-us Leaf! Husband mentioned we might be able to save a bunch of money on gas, and I went a little crazy looking at what was for sale around us. I also spent a lot of time reading around this forum and learning a lot of things about the car and various models/years/options/etc, so thank you all for the collective knowledge. I went shopping on a whim when I had Veteran's Day off, and ended up buying a car!

Our car: 2013 SV with Quick Charge (04/13 build), 24k miles, 12 capacity bars (not sure yet if I'll splurge for LeafSpy), and overall in really great shape. Still all shiny with the new car smell! So far I just love it, and I am having FUN driving it! I'm in the process of getting permission to charge at work, which will add a little extra to the financial benefit too. I'm hoping it holds up alright in the Florida climate.

For those still shopping or thinking of selling soon, we paid $7650 + $640 dealer fee so $8290.
