I'm relieved they didn't eliminate it to save $0.25.

worst of all it doesnt have any smog sensor that switches automatically to recycling when a dirty car/truck/polution is detected. like any infiniti does.

All that's really needed is a second activation button for Recirc on the wheel like the G3 Prius has, plus an indication that it's engaged. With all the nondescript buttons already there, though, it would have to be round, or color coded. Speaking of which, if I end up with a 2018 Leaf I intend to color code all those damned square buttons...

how do you know the car in front of you is clean or not and if the area you are going to is clean? let the car do, like any infiniti, lexus, honda, etc. i3 and renault zoe do as well.

I doubt very much that "any" Honda sold in the US has an automatic smog sensing ventilation system. That's more a Japan spec feature. Considering that the Leaf Too is a partially improved, partially cheaped-out iteration of the first generation Leaf, we should have more realistic expectations.

why do i have to drive with my clean car in the middle of the pollution and eat the dust of the suvs? why does nissan spend so much money in a sun glass holder just under the roof? any child knows that glass is crackling in that heat. remove it and sell me a smog sensor. and if nissan does that, they can sell us ventilated seats like hyundai does!!!

I'm sorry but this makes no sense... The eyeglass holder is good. So you prefer a smog sensor? What good will it do you ? We know we live in unclean air....

maybe you should remove your pollen filter to make the HVAC rotate at lower RPM to save some watts? :mrgreen:

My favorite "least-known trick" is the unlock button on the rear hatch. At least on my 2015, there are two buttons for the rear hatch. The wider one unlocks the hatch, but a smaller one to the right works the same as the door unlock button.

Yes, I use that all the time too. But is it really not known...?
