I wish I'd known these things when i first got my Leaf

Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:45 pm

I'm fairly new to the Leaf and so far I LOVE it ! I drive 7-14 miles a day on average on weekdays, and 25-50 miles a day on weekends. I have 220 chargers at my office as a perk for employees. Our former CEO was a big fan of EV and got in early. He still drives a Tesla.
I bought a 2014 base model with 14K miles on it back last December for about $10,000 and feel like it's the most cost-effective car I've ever owned. Anyway, trying to pick the brains of you veterans. What took you a while to find out that you wish you had known sooner ?

There is a virtually identical topic on this already, IIRC.

The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.

I think the OP may be fishing for features that may not be obvious to new owners, rather than disappointments. If that's the case, the other thread may not be as helpful.

There's a Tips and Tricks section with all sorts of info on features however: viewforum.php?f=38

Yeah, I was just about to resurrect that one too.
