I'm curious: how much did you pay for the LEAF ?
And I have a ZenCar 240V 32A EVSE already. And yes, I'm trying to find someone who will let me charge, but so far I haven't.
The Leaf has been my most expensive car yet. It was $12,000 or so, but with the Colorado 24% used EV from-out-of-state tax credit, so a little over $9,000. My payments were $220/month, but I paid quite a bit into it the first year and have it all paid off now, about 1 year 2 months after I purchased it.
Personally I love the Leaf, but the wife and I had to make a decision on a new project/job we're both involved in that had unexpectedly moved 70 miles away from us. If it weren't for that we'd just keep the Leaf and keep loving it.
My first car was a free 1951 Plymounth Cranbrook that I never got running. Next was a $800 1984 Toyota Corolla that I let someone borrow who wrecked it. Then he gave me a 1985 BMW that had severe transmission problems, in which I swapped transmissions and still had severe transmissions problems. After that I got a $1,200 1985 Toyota Camry that also ended up losing the transmission. So I rode my bicycle for a year or two after that. Then got a $500 1984 Toyota Pickup and got married. I traded it even for a 1994 Oldsmobile that the transmission soon went out on. I sold it for $500 and got a $250 1993 Mazda 323 that I drove clear to Puerto Vallarta and back and all over the country. Eventually it ended up with engine problems, which got rebuilt, but still had severe engine problems. So I got a 1996 Buick LeSabre that soon the engine went out on, which I replaced, only for the transmission to go out on. So I went and bought a $3,000 1972 VW Beetle with a rebuilt engine that wasn't rebuild correctly and so destroyed itself after a couple hundred miles. So I bought a 1985 VW Golf diesel for $600 that a couple weeks ago lost its transmission.
And while I had both VW's I bought the Leaf and still have all three cars today, both VW's still not running.
