I'm 6'-3" and 205 lbs and the 2013 fit is decent, but not perfect. The center console gets in the way of my knee, which on longer trips is uncomfortable and the seat kind of sucks too. But, that's unfortunately true of many cars - they aren't made for people over 6' tall.

Probably a decade.

Yes, as long as the EVSE has the ability to operate at multiple amperage set points. An inexpensive portable EVSE that does that is the Zencar 32A model.

Better than any other car I've owned, but I don't own the 2019 LEAF.

The reviews I've seen are all pretty consistent - it's quiet.

On my 2013 SV, I don't notice any difference in "pick-up" at lower states of charge.

Likely similar issues to the 2018, so have a look at this ongoing post, among others:viewtopic.php?f=55&t=25521
