That was your 2013 S??? Do you mean that was the contract residual, or that was as low as NMAC would go on a buy out? The residual on my 2013 SV was about $18K, but NMAC offered me the vehicle for somewhat above $7K.

So is that 40 kWh? 45 kWh? Probably 40 with aero improvements does it. The only benefit of a 60 kWh is longevity - having the 150 miles for more years. Not an issue for leases but (hopefully) it will eventually make financial sense to buy EVs


well about 6½ years ago, I blogged that I would buy a LEAF when it had 36 kwh because I figured that would be my price/performance/convenience point for a long term commitment but that was before the reality of degradation so I have adjusted to 40ish. Maybe 40 if the price is compelling but likely closer to 45...

no, I mean my 2016 S30. I turned down an offer to buy my 2013 for $5800. The residual on the 2013 was just over $12,000

This was my payoff option which expired the day before my first lease payment. My lease was a zero drive off that included a $149.75 overpayment on registration fees from the dealer so my real out of pocket expense would have been $17,588.82

Can someone tell me if the heated steering wheel is still available on the 17 leaf? The Nissan page mentions it as available but none of the trim levels show it as an option. If it is available, on what trim levels and is it easy to find in dealer inventory?
Thanks!

As I understand it, the S doesn't have the heated wheel any more, but the other two trims (SV and SL) have it standard, along with heated front seats. The SL is now the only one with heated back seats.

So does the S still have heated front seats, at least???

Aha! Ok, found it on the leaf site after all. Heated steering wheel standard on sv and sl. I still don't understand why they removed features from the s and raised the sticker price all while offering deep discounts off msrp. 15k off msrp seems pretty easy to come by, can you imagine how many more they would sell if they just listed them at 19995 to start with!
