I have decided to sell my Leaf. After 4.5 years and 65000 miles of problem free driving (between my 2015 and 2018) I am moving on to something a little sportier now that I'm finally done paying for daycare :). Thanks to everyone on the forum that has helped me out over the years, this place has a nice community feel and was a great source of information for me when I was new to EVs.

Sell it on here I'm sure you will get a lot more for it than a dealer trade.

I have a private sale at a good price set up already. With dealers selling CPO 40KWh SLs with less than 10k miles for $23k in Virginia I could only hope for so much.

You can tell us if you moved to Tesla.
It’s a great car, just too fast for me.

I got my first ticket in 20+ years last month in my Plus. Even in ECO i wish I could tune down the power even more.

How much more distance could ALL EVs get if they were de-tuned to less than go-cart response/acceleration? Tesla?

I'll still be in an EV... and yes it is a used Model 3. My car before the leaf was a tuned WRX and I really missed the performance. I could finally afford to have the best of both worlds so I jumped on it. The family and I will miss the Leaf, it was a great car.

Tesla has chill mode if you find the instant acceleration too much.
