Re: Des Moines, Iowa LEAF Owners!

I know there are several "crowd funding" options out there to raise quick money. The road block I see is getting the word out to all the Iowa City / Des Moines / Ames area EV owners. Maybe your web-site would be a good source? How many folks are you aware that know about these efforts?

We haven't found a way to get in touch with EV owners. The event we are holding this Sunday may flush out some. We'll see. We only have a list of about 10 EV owners so far. Pretty darn small! http://www.EVIowa.info" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Trying to stir up some interest in the Iowa group. I'm considering buying a used LEAF to avoid the steep depreciation, then upgrade to a newer, used LEAF in 2-3 years. LOL

Hope to see more conversation here. I'm in Cedar Falls.

We've seen some real horror stories about people buying Leafs with degraded batteries, and I wanted to try to prevent that. Feel free to share it, unaltered.

I bought a 2019 LEAF SL Plus with 4k miles on it for $29k at Wayzata Nissan (Twin Cities). And still eligible for Fed tax credit because they had never been registered to a private owner!

I was going to wait a couple of years, but I couldn't pass up that price combo.
