Good car by seal on 07/08/2012.
Pros: You never have to go hunting for the best prices @ a gas station. You just plug it in overnight. The car has seemingly instant acceleration. If you pick someone up in the car they literally won't know you have it turned on. (when still there is no sound) Quiet, easily drives freeway speed. Comfy inside with plenty of headroom. You can set it to heat up 10 min before you get in the car. The range works easily for regular commuting. , Any downhill will recharge the battery due to special brakes and 20 min charging stations are being added. You will save 70percent of your would be gas bill w electricity instead. Easier to drive than automatic.
Cons: Light interior is stainable. The red color option is hideous. The car itself has an odd look to it and draws attention. And with the number of charging stations on freeways, you still pretty much need another car for longer trips. And theres no heated seats. You should pay for the 240 volt charger to realistically charge your car.
Overall review: All in all a great commuter car. I recomend using it on a day to day basis and having another car for the occasional longer trips. What you pay for the car and charger will end up paying for itself compared to other cars even those with 30-40 mpg. It costs about 2.50 for 100 miles more or less. Love my leaf
