Re: The official "I got my Leaf" thread

Wed Oct 03, 2018 3:01 pm

I received my 2017 SL on September 21, 2018. I purchased it through Carvana and am very pleased with the experience. I traded my 2014 Honda Accord which Carvana picked up when they delivered the Leaf. The Leaf was from Florida where a person had a one year lease. It was auctioned in Georgia and only had 4,300 miles on it. The only negative was a missing SD map card. The Navigation does not work without the SD card. Many other features also do not work. Carvana told me to visit a Nissan dealer and have them install a new SD card. Carvana also wanted the Nissan dealer to submit a claim to their SilverRock warranty service. But the dealers in my area did not want to deal with Silver Rock. So I just purchased the SD card from a dealer and installed it. I put a review on the Carvana website describing my experience with the SD card. I received an email from Carvana the day following my review submission. They asked for a picture of the SD card receipt so they could send me a check for it. I received the check the day after I sent them the receipt photo. I like the Leaf and I highly recommend Carvana based upon my experience. But be warned buying used Leafs. Check for the SD card. They seem to go walking.

That's too bad, because the SD car is keyed to the LEAFs VIN and unless you need an extra card for your camera is useless.

Yes... you do have to buy the replacement SD card from a Nissan dealer for it to work. Do not buy a SD card from eBay or anywhere else.

Does it count if all the paperwork is done except the actual part of them handing you keys to the leaf several days from now?

Hi, we are new to this forum, we just bought a 2016 SV, a very pretty red color. It only had 7300 miles after a corporate lease. It does have all 12 bars, and charged to 105 miles. It was originally bought in this area (Seattle), so no real hot weather. Our other car is a 2018 Honda Clarity PHEV, so we are a 2 electric car family now, sharing a level 2 charger in the garage. :D

awesome! welcome to the club!

If you don't mind, can you PM me (or share on another thread) your experiences with the clarity phev? i know some folks who are still having trouble with transitioning to an EV, and they only have faith in Toyota and Honda. :(
