That sucks but at least you're fine, cars are replaceable.

We splurged and bought the Leaf SL with premium package. I'm not fond of the Bose stereo but the around view monitor is nice. We also have two kids so leather is a must. I did read the SL alloys are heavy at about 28lbs a piece though....that kind of bugs me.

I'm thinking about getting the 2015 SV + QuickCharge package. In your opinion, is it worth splurging for the SL? How about the "Around View Monitor" upgrade?
We moved from the 2012 SL to the 2015 SV + QuickCharge package + LED. Leather was not something we wanted. The "Around View Monitor" would have been nice, but we can live without it. The SV does not have the homelink for the garage. You will also be "missing" the solar panel :lol: . Other than that we love the 2015.

Trees must hate the Leaf because they love the CO2 created by gas cars...

The tree was just trying to turn over a new Leaf.

I am happy they did not order the Bose stereo because it would have all been thrown away.

I need a real powerful stereo, one that moves you.


(the sound is not clear because the 12 cent microphone in my iPhone 4S cannot handle the bass output, Turn up your stereo and see if the water in a bottle dances like mine)

Same Issue with my home stereo recording:


(The sound Live standing next to either system is clean with no distortion whatsoever, the mic just can't handle the sound pressure)

Your dash cam video captures your reaction nicely. Worried, but calm. It doesn't show the airbag deploying, was there a delay?

Ooh, man maybe the ECM divided by zero!

Glad it was a walk-away. I like Eucalyptus trees, but from a distance. We had a couple of huge ones on our property when we moved in. My neighbor called them "the widowmakers". When one of the branches landed on our house we started having them cut back every couple of years and eventually just got rid of them altogether.
