I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Extremely reliable, fun and zippy to drive!

This has been a great car. It fits our family of 3 perfectly with room to spare. Charges easily and quickly. Saves thousands a year on gas!!
Look around first so you understand that their prices can't be haggled but it is worth it. I couldn't find a single car within $1K of their price. And the quality of the car was outstanding. Easy. Great kid's corner keeps them occupied too. No pressure sales is a beautiful thing.
Best commuter vehicle

This EV is saving me about $300/mo in gas from commuting 54mi a day. It works as a perfect commuter vehicle and it's fun to drive!
I’ve owned the LEAF for about 18 months and love it. All electric means no costs for gas or oil. It’s smooth and fun to drive. I previously drove an SUV and do not feel like I lost much interior space at all. While I love the car, it’s not for everyone. Limited range makes it perfect for smaller towns or short commutes. My S model does not have a quick charge option, nor are there quick charging stations in my area. This is not the car for you if you drive long distances.
I was looking to replace an aging car I just use for short trips. So toa put-your-enviro-creds-where-your-mouth is, I looked at used Leafs (with ~80 mi max range). Well, after realizing the tax creds were still there, it made sense to buy a new one with the 150mi range.
I haven't pushed the range yet, so I can't say anything intelligent about range anxiety. And that is a big concern.
I got the tech package, which contains all those safety features the ads show . They mostly work, but sometimes they don't (i.e.; dynamic cruise control can kick off when the person in front of you peels off -- even if there is someone just in front of him). So while they offer safeguards, one must not be complacent.
This is an amazing car. I love driving by gas stations and never having to stop. It is comfortable and quiet and REALLY seats 2 average sized adults in the back. The hatchback is deceptively larger than you think: I don't need to take my bike wheel off, I can throw it in the back easily. Not emitting carbon monoxide is a benefit for our planet.
I inquired about a car they had listed through cars.com from their lot. I received a call back quickly from the sales rep who was friendly and personable. I'm not sure if I'll end up buying from them, but I am several states away and they seemed well prepared for out of state transactions.
80 miles per dollar, and ~no maintenance!

You can't beat these things. I owned a 2011 Leaf for over 5 years (older battery chemistry, range degraded too much), now own a 2014 and 2015. Perfect commuter, range up to 100 miles, less in the winter, and it degrades a bit over time. If you don't need more than ~50 miles per day, you can't beat these, and they'll serve you well for years, even with a bit of degradation, or in the winter (less efficient).
Carmax was very professional and great at helping me out with the car buying process.It was my first time getting a new car so they were a great help .They had me in and out with a car in no time .
Love the leaf.

Range is obviously an issue, but if you dont mind that then owning the nissan leaf is nearly perfect in every other way. Low to zero maintaince, fun to drive, never uses gas, makes you feel good about driving again - that you arent messing up the planet - at least as much as a gas car.
