I keep coming back to this thread thinking I am going to see the first picture of someone with their new 2018 Leaf, but nothing yet!

A dealer out here is quoting leases for the an S for $299 instead of $229 as advertised by Nissan, with all the same terms and downpayment.

If they are on the lot for more than a week at this point, I would suspect that the dealer is waiting for someone who will overpay for the car.

One thing you can always do when a dealer is charging more than the national offers is to tell them you want the exact terms of the national offer. They have to give you them, although you have to watch for hidden overcharges.

My dealer said they got 1 in this week and it sold in 3 hours. And they have no 2017's left at all.

Test drove one yesterday. Nissan did not show that inventory at the dealer. They said they received their first two, had sold one and one was left.

I was very pleasantly surprised. Like many of the reviews, it seems like an incremental improvement in many/most areas. Its just a nicer, better, faster, larger LEAF with better range etc.

I had written off the LEAF thinking I was going to get a Model 3, but now Elon has postponed the $35k Model 3 to 2019 and is prioritizing any higher priced models ahead of it. Tax rebate will be reduced or gone by the time they make the $35k version, if they ever do make it. Makes the new LEAF, even with only 150mile range interesting. Only killer is the lack of TMS. No way I would buy it, but if they offer a good lease deal I could be tempted.

It should be available about the same time as the $35K Tesla Model S in the 60 kWh version. But you may face the same problem regarding the 7500 federal tax credit by the time it comes out.

Works great except it makes a whistling sound coming from the driver windscreen area when you drive above 50 mph. DIdn't hear it until the cabin was completely silent. Sounds like you are in a minor wind gust. Dealership says the problem has to be looked by "nissan engineers". Not sure what that means. Will they fix it? who knows?

So my advice, when you test drive the car.. Tell the sales guy to shut up. Drive the car above 50 mph and make sure it doesn't make a whistling sound...

Until then I will keep my radio on so I don't hear that sound while driving down the highway.


Here is the first 2018 purchase reported on MNL (that I'm aware of).

I just got an email from a salesman at Stadium Nissan of Orange county. It seems like they just received a shipment.

I could not wait and I leased my B250E so I am out of the market.
