OK, I think we've established the details of this particular disagreement. I don't think that OrientExpress is going to stop defending Nissan, and TexasLeaf isn't going to start believing that he "didn't do his homework" so some of you may want to consider filtering each other. Just click on the username profile, and then click on "add Foe."

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

Let people know what the limits of tools are. This is a request.

The LEAF is a fine car for around town, and for shorter trips. One QC needed? No problem, unless you live in Phoenix or similar. Two or three, maybe in a cooler place. Or in winter.

The LEAF is not a road trip car, unless you are not in a hurry.

The more people that know that, the fewer unhappy customers Nissan will have.

Happy customers pay dividends in the future. Not so unhappy customers.

I agree, and continue to try to drive that point home every time the chance presents it. The challenge of course is that my reach is limited, and as with just about every retail product sold today that involves a sales person, the limitations of a product are not always conveyed, and the consumer will assume a capability or does not even consider what they will be using the product for until they are actually using it. We have all been there. For BEVs, at this point in time IMO there are none on the market today that are capable of being a 1:1 analog for an ICE vehicle, especially for long distance travel. They are fine for round trips under 300 or so miles, but beyond that, they are simply not there yet.
