That's like complaining that when I cross the stream with my car, the insides gets wet... Not the fault of the car. I have owned dozens of cars in the past 40 years, and the Leaf is the quietest, and most stable car I have every owned. It just doesn't handle like my Mazda Miata....


Sorry but it wasn't a general complaint, the resonance noise we (including a Nissan mechanic) hear in my Leaf isn't there on any other Leaf's I've used.

If no set of tires work and the problem does not exist on other Leaf vehicles, is has to be an issue with tire alignment then. You have either the front or back set dragging down the road slightly and the faster you go, the more sound that is produced as wasted energy (tire wear and sound production). I can get this happen to my leaf when I approach +90 mph because I need to get an alignment done.

I just read the last few posts about tire noise and wonder if the Michelin Energy Savers that came on my 2015 SL are the cause of the faint whine I hear (I just assumed it was gear noise). The 2011 came with Bridgestone Ecopias which became progressively louder as the miles increased. I eventually replaced them with Michelin MXM4s which were much quieter (also better handling and traction under dry conditions) but they did reduce range a bit due to increased rolling resistance. I may look for the Dunlops when I need new tires.

Perfect. Now just don't leave your house. Who needs a quiet back yard in which to enjoy dinner when you can hole yourself up in your house and shut every door and window?

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.
