Surprisingly I haven't really had too many people asking about mine yet. Maybe that's because they don't know it's all electric even though it has the zero emision, no tailpipe, and a weird small hood thing on the front (aka the charge port) which are all clues but I guess not to everyone. It's kind of funny with the story about State Farm. My wife actually works at a body shop as a detailer and she drove my car to work one day cause she was out of gas in her car. Everyone at work was like "what the hell is that"? They had no idea and they work at a body shop fixing damaged cars all day. Granted it is a dealership body shop which is not our local Nissan Dealer, but you would think being a Dealer body shop they would know what one is. $1,500 is quite a bit for hail damage. Must have taken quite a beating which sucks.

It's been a while since there's been any activity in the Iowa area. Any New owners in Iowa? I know we aren't a prime selling area, but I guess I figured there would be at least a few. Maybe they just aren't on here?

Cool. Welcome BlueZero. Did you buy from Dave Wright Nissan? That's where I leased mine. I won't buy it, strictly a lease for me. Haven't seen yours around. I have a '12 Silver SL. I'm all over town so you might have seen me, but I live on the NW side of Cedar Rapids.

I'm wondering does the owner of a Black Leaf that must go to the Tama casino frequent these forums? I always see a black leaf parked in the old K-Mart parking lot off of 16Th Ave where the bus picks up the gamblers off to Tama.

Am I the only one that posts from Iowa? Come on there has to be others. Anyways has any other leaf owner ventured up to Shellsburg? According to plugshare, there is a Quick Charging station there. I've been tempted to make the drive myself just to see but I haven't yet. Has anyone else and can verify that there really is one there and it actually works?

I live in Treynor, Iowa. I haven't seen any other leafs here on this side. I have seen a few in Omaha though. You all might want to take a look at the thread 900 mile Christmas trip. I'm going to be completing that marathon Christmas week. Going to come up through Des Moines and up to Humboldt (just north of Fort Dodge)

Yeah I read your trip idea of 900 miles. I think your crazy in a Leaf, but wish you the best of luck. I'm uncomfortable even planning a trip to Des Moines and back which would be roughly 250-260 miles round trip. I have taken mine to Coraville and back a few times, but I'm not willing to push the range that far. I do have the upgraded EVSE from EVSEUpgrade but with a 2012 model and a 3.3 charger, my charge times are still longer than the 2013. I have actually seen a few others. I know that black one I mentioned before is running around, I've also seen a Blue one and a White one. There was one time that a guy came off the interstate and with the luck of the stoplights was right in front of me in a Leaf exactly the same as mine, so there were two leafs right in front of each other one being mine.

There must be plenty of them in CR area by now. Last time I wanted to charge at New Bo market both places were used by Leafs! I had to wait few hours before I could go home :-)

You all got all kinds of charging stations. Wish Omaha did. It's good that they're catching on there (leafs and charging stations). Platesmouth just south of Omaha built a new hyvee with a charging station. Going to check this weekend and see if it's up and running.
