After taxes and fees it came out to right at 46k amount financed.
Depreciation calcs do not include taxes or fees.
It *sounds* like you paid ~ msrp for your car, which is as someone already said ... unfortunate, and it explains most of your current malaise.
So long as you own the car I think you will have to accept that it is not a good choice for your long trips. Rent something else for those occasions or use public transport. That still leaves 350+ days a year where the LEAF meets you daily use.
This post came off way more like a complaint that I meant it to. I’m just upset with myself and that came out. I was just hoping beyond hope that someone new of something that could be done to help. I heard rumors of possibly routing some of the cars AC into the battery compartment to help but haven’t seen anything that’s actually been done. I considered just popping off the port hole in the back seat area and sticking some sort of portable AC unit to blow straight into it. But I dunno if that would do anything.
