jjeff is referring to Cruise Control, which isn't standard on the S ... but might be on the 2016 and later ?

I bought an SV for that reason. So far I like having it.

Edit: According to this link (click specifications) Cruise Control was standard on all Leaf models in 2015.

Yes, as pmc said and note on the S models that didn't come with Cruise(pre '15 it sounds like) not only is Cruise not standard, you can't get it :) well at least factory installed.
I'm not sure why some people have issues with the heater burning out, it's not real common but is expensive when it happens out of warranty. The non-functioning AC for the S-models was caused by a bracket causing undo strain on a rubber refrigerant line causing it to fail, this was a recall item and if not fixed, should be. Not sure what year Leafs were affected but for sure '13 and '14 S models, I don't believe the '11's or 12's were affected nor any of the heat pump Leafs.

It might show up on CarFax. Otherwise you'll have to ask the owner for the service paperwork.
