Actually, with ample DC charge options now available, most of that 761 mile trip would have required little dedication in a "40 kWh" or even a "30 kWh" LEAF, which I would gladly have rented, if either were available.

It's very sad that so many billions of dollars of misplaced government incentives have been wasted to subsidize the sales of so many vehicles that cannot even use public chargers, PHEVs, Teslas, and DC-incapable BEVs, and most ridiculously, FCVs, while a fraction of those funds well-spent could have given us the basic DC infrastructure on every major highway in the USA, that we now have on The Arc.

My April 2011 LEAF has 40k miles on it. It has been at 9 remaining capacity bars for a couple of years. It only gets driven about 10 miles every other day so the decreased capacity hasn’t been a problem.
I just replaced the 12 V battery for the second time. The tires were replaced at 36k miles. The GPS died and I had to have it repaired for a cost of 500 dollars. It has been completely reliable.
We will,probably get a new HV battery when we lose out 9th bar. Then the car should be good for another 8 years.

Idle curiosity: Why did you get the GPS fixed? I suspect you know all the roads within 10 miles of home. Does the same module do something else which is more important?
