Before I pulled the trigger on the V I researched used Leafs as many were coming off lease's and none of them held their value. An almost 40 thousand dollar car a few years old and 20 thousand miles were going in the neighborhood of 12 grand plus or minus a few depending on trim. To my disappointment most were from Texas, FL and CA near area of flooding when I reviewed the carfax. Further research showed the existing capacity of the battery may not meet my 40 mile round trip commute in all seasons when use of the AC, heater is done and stop n go traffic.
Although I hate pumping gas my V gets 43 mpg and I hope the new Leaf does better or leads to cleaner better cars.
