Re: Less than one day until Carvana brings a Leaf

Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:54 am

Hi-
I also recently bought a 2013 LEAF SV from Carvana. Fortunately it had all 12 bars.

Did you confirm that yours was built in the latter half of 2013? Mine was built in Oct 2013.
Could you post the Carvana page for the one you received so we could look at the AutoCheck for it.

Carvana has been adding a LOT of LEAFs over the last couple of weeks. As of right now, they have 100 listed (though some are "purchase pending" or "on demand". Of course not all of them are SV's, but I'm sure some are.

I guess what I'm saying is that if you aren't totally sure about this one, you might have better luck on the next one you pick. I'm also noticing that they are starting to have a lot of 2015 models and even some 2016s.

Yes. April 2013.

Can't find the page. Looks like they took it down.

I did find a couple 2013 SV manufactured 4/2013 or later with similar mileage for a little more and they were kept in So. CA, TX or NM though. I think I'll stick with the one I have.

Hi, I don't have any experience with Carvana, but I did buy a March 2013 SL. My commute is a total of 40 miles, 75% on freeway. I leave ECO and B on, since I live in Los Angeles and the traffic is rough. SOH is 70% (ten bars). The car usually reads 65miles on a full charge and on most days I get back home with 20 or a little less miles on the battery.

I'm not worried about the commute.

I'd be worried about the battery degrading too quickly.

Perhaps, the battery has another year on the warranty though.

I'm talking about losing bars quickly, but not quickly enough to get you a new pack. In that case you'd be stuck with a 10 or so bar car without enough range.

Sure, the only other option to that would be to not get a Leaf at all then.

Leafs built before April of 2013 lose capacity much more quickly than those built from 4/2013 on, especially in moderately warm temps. My point is that your 2013 may lose capacity much more quickly than one built later that year.
