I bought a used 2012 Leaf for $10k with 30k miles a few months ago and have been lurking here even longer. The Leaf is perfect for my short commute.
I added a new 240v outlet to my garage, decided to pay an electrician because my 1970's electrical service was at capacity.
I also put in my deposit for Fenix Power systems. Who knows it might end up being a great investment, or maybe I just threw away $150.
I picked up a spare tire kit from ebay for $60 because I'm a 40-something and can't drive a car without a spare tire. There's really not a great place to put the spare in the 2012 so I just strapped it to the child seat restraints on the back of the rear seats. A cheapo tire cover from Amazon made it look acceptable.
I'd love to get a replacement / upgrade for "carwings" on the 2012. Does such a thing exist?
Thanks for all your help.
