Thanks for the very informative post. This really helps a lot when buying 2nd hand Leaf.

You're welcome. I'll be adding a section on 40kwh Leafs shortly.

I posted a related question about heat pumps at viewtopic.php?f=27&t=30803

I also responded there. Can anyone confirm that ALL 2017 SV Leafs have the heat pump? I seem to remember something about heated seats and wheel being optional that year, but don't remember for sure, and don't know if the heat pump was also optional. Starting in 2018 the heat pump is standard only in the SL, still not available in the S, and part of the All Weather Package in the SV.

From the specs tab of https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit, heat pump is included standard on '17 SV and '17 SL.

I believe it was starting with '16 model years did they start screwing with rear heated seats not being available nor standard unless you got SL.

See https://usa.nissannews.com/en-US/releas ... -press-kit specs tab and the '17 press kit above. Search for rear heated.

I just usually Google for stuff like 2016 leaf press kit site:nissannews.com. Make sure you arrive at the US press kits and not the Canadian ones.

Thanks. I knew that they didn't list the options in a readable form there, and was hoping to just pick someone's brain. ;)

The buying guide has been updated, especially in the 30kwh Leaf section. It now reflects the 40kwh warranty replacement bonus, as well as how to tell if a 2016 leaf has the 24kwh or 30kwh pack. If you haven't read the guide before, it's the first post in this topic. If you haven't read it in a while, please read it again before shopping for a used leaf. Sometime this year I hope to update it again, to include the 40kwh leaf.
