Well, things worked out pretty good.
About a week ago now, after 2 days of haggling, my wife and I brought home a 2016 Leaf with 15K on it. It'd come off lease here in the Eugene area, was in solid shape, and we could get a lower-mileage, newer car than we thought we'd be able to afford.
Not too shabby really
As you can imagine though, what we thought would be our backup car... isn't. It's now the "first out" vehicle, and we are having so much fun driving it. First day we snagged new boosters for the kids, and they love riding in it. My son especially gets a kick out of showing the charging area to his friends
Glad to be on here as an owner now. I'm totally hooked. This is our first EV... but I don't think it'll be the last. My kids are already asking when there'll be an electric Outback available...
