Re: Getting a Leaf, looking for advice between S and SV

IIRC, the OP was looking at used Leafs*. Second, the two critical differences between an S and an SV are the heatpump (now an option on the US SV) and telematics. Things like heated seats don't strike me as a critical difference when they are standard on one version and optional on another.

* "I am looking at used cars, the new ones are a bit too much to spend on a car that isn't driven much."


And I'm comparing 2019 models to 2019 models, and not used because 1. that makes it FAR too confusing given the changes over the various model years (and which aren't always consistent from country to country) and 2. I don't know of any way to pull up specs for previous years just for US-spec cars, much less any other country's spec.

If someone can show me proof that the pre-2018 Canadian spec Leaf S did NOT come with a hybrid heater, I'll stand corrected, and have said so previously in this forum when I've been corrected. I have no problem admitting I'm wrong, as long as you can show me proof that I'm wrong. I just wish you'd do the same.

Not very classy. First you insist that I prove your claim, based on something you think you remember, then you tell me I won't admit to being wrong. Whatever. I'm not going to read your posts for a while. Too much spam to delete.

The issue is that for some reason, if I disagree with you, it seems like you take it very personally. And I don't know why, I think we agree more than we disagree. But when we do disagree, we REALLY disagree.

My burden of proof is as little as "I have a 2016 Leaf S Canadian-spec and it does NOT have the hybrid heater." That's far more convincing than the arguments you've proposed as to why you claim it doesn't, that's all.
