I should probably also mention that I'm in Australia and am pretty sure that warranty here is different (possibly non-existent if it's a grey import).
That is a very important point to clarify.
But beyond that,
So long as a LEAF has not been in a wreck or has obvious problems/damages/defects, it is all about the battery pack health (SOH) and pack capacity. You can ignore the odometer. In the USA the 30 kWh packs had calibration issues that lead to incorrect LEAFSpy readings. I don't know if the same is in play for the car you are considering so my advice would be to do a charging test to verify pack capacity.
Find an EVSE that you know the Power.
Start (and note) the charge at a SoC below 30%
Energy into pack will be Power * time * 0.88 = E
Note ending SoC (anything below 95% is fine). Shoot for a SoC increase of around 50%
Calculate SoC increase
Total usable capacity is E / (SoC_increase)
2013 LEAF 'S' Model bought Jan 2017 from N. Cal @ 90% SOH
SOLD 7/2022 @ 83% SOH
