This is good to hear. I'm planning to stick with dealerships for now, since that's the only way to get the Charge Ahead rebate, and I'd rather not leave $2500 on the tableTheMagster wrote:We bought a 2015 Nissan Leaf SV with ~25k miles & 12 bars for $11,500 off the lot. We financed it to get a $700 incentive they were offering, then paid if off within a few weeks (then the Nissan bank lost our title and we had to use a temporary moving permit for 6 months, which was annoying but actually saved us 6 month's worth of car registration). We should be getting the $2500 Energy Trust rebate check soon, that will bring our final price down to about $9000. If you plan to get that, you'll have to buy pretty soon, as that program is first-come first-served. Our car was off-lease and in perfect condition. I didn't know about LeafSpy at the time, but I did get the battery report, carfax, etc. before buying.
Looks like there's a Used 2015 Nissan LEAF SV for sale here at Lithia Nissan in Eugene

Price looks pretty outrageous honestly, especially since I've seen similar online for under $10K, and with lower mileage.
I'm gonna look into it though, see if we can figure something out.
