I am extra jealous as the Blue is my favorite color.

Funny about the Blue: like the Red, it is a bright color in bright light, and a dark blue in lower light. So one of her favorite colors and also one of mine, which is a different shade. I still prefer mine's Scarlet Ember, but the blue is indeed nice. The blue stitching in the seats was a surprise to me, and that's nice too. And I'm really glad I leaned on Nissan Corporate so hard and often when I was in the GLAB, to get Around View back in the SV.

Hopefully this is the last Leaf we'll ever need to lease/buy, unless I pick up a cheap one as a second car if having just one doesn't work out.

The one feature that could make me want to change is if a Leaf (or Niro) came out with Solar on the roof which fed the traction battery.

Interesting trick. TIL.

I was confused by your other post and thought you replaced your 40 kWh Leaf with a Plus but now I'm not sure... Sounds like there are now your housemate's Plus and your non-Plus?

Just bought our first Leaf. 2017 SV in blue with 25K on the clock. We picked up the car with only 8 bars so we are currently in the process of getting the warranty replacement. A week ago I knew very little about EVs but based on the information that has been shared here I felt confident making the decision to purchase the vehicle. I have a feeling this is going to be the first of many EVs in the house.

Correct. We have agreed to try making do with just her car - which will become "our" car - when I turn mine in. I can also choose, if I can get a lease extension (which I think I can, to "wait for the Ariya") to make the lease payments from my own funds after next April. I do much prefer the way my car drives, oddly enough: the accelerator and brake programming are a bit more aggressive, making my car feel faster and lighter.

We just got our 2015 Leaf SL with 42,000 miles on it. Love it so far! I've heard of electric car owners say that it would be hard to go back 100% to ICE cars, and I can see why!

BTW, even though we got the car from a used car dealer, we used the 'Out the door' price negotiation tactic and it worked like a charm and we did all of the haggling through email! SOOOOO much easier! Highly recommend it.
