Just got a new 2018 Pearl White Crosstrek from CARR Subaru in Beaverton Oregon. Those guys were great to work with. Thank you Sam Fontanos for helping me pick out a great car. Thank you Fernando Del Campo for giving me very good advice and providing great financing. You can’t beat the excellent service at the Beaverton CARR SUBARU. You guys rock! I’m so happy with my new car.
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!
My positive experience was due to working with Nigel Erickson, the salesman. I spent weeks deciding, and trying cars. I purchased a car and decided to upgrade and he took the time to find me the car I wanted buried behind others cars, in a storm, at night and at a different location. He was always positive, helpful and professional . I got to know him a bit over time and found he has big heart. The dealership is quite lucky to have him. He has worked in a caring profession in the past, taking care of others, but now he is a salesman. The skills carried over because his big heart is obvious. I felt appreciated as a customer and a person. I wasn't treated as less because I am a female purchasing a car. I felt valued and it made me want to continue working with CARR in the future. I really appreciate all of the hard work and dedication Nigel provided. I wont forget it. - Molly Triplett
Love the LEAF!

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.
Platt Auto made the car buying process virtually stress free. Both Greg and Ray took the time to discuss the ins an outs of owning an electric vehicle without ever pushing us to buy one. When we did make the decision we didn't have to worry about add-ons or surprises. If you are in the market for electric this is the place to go. I'm already looking forward to purchasing our next car from Platt.
The best smooth comfortable drive

So far I love this all electric car, exactly what I need. Drives like a dream and saving money on not purchasing gas and insurance and no DEQ. Love contributing to the green footprint
I highly reccomend Platt Auto! The switch from a gas vehicle to an electric vehicle has a learning curve but the folks at Platt Auto are very service and education oriented. I was indecisive as to which level of car I wanted and tested their 7-Day no-questions-asked return guarantee more than once(!!!) and they didn't mind at all! They gave me an excellent trade-in value for my gas car. And when I had an issue with a tire and called them to ask about it and they simply replaced them for me as part of their service guarantee! I felt no pressure from them and they were so helpful. Buying a used car in the past, I've had negative experiences, I got none of that here. They have a wide selection of electric cars and accessories at great prices, many of their vehicles still have factory warranties left on them. They have a comfortable waiting room with toys and kids movies too. Please go see them if you're even considering the switch to an electric vehicle.
Best car I've owned
by Happy Leaf Owner from San Diego, CA

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.
Amazing service, no pressure, multiple guarantees!

80 miles per dollar, and ~no maintenance!
by PDX_Leafer from Portland, OR

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).

Gregg Platt is an obvious devotee of EV cars with a very posiyive and helpful approach. Provided comprehensive list of all available Nissan Leafs in inventory with pertinent featurs and asking prices -- very beneficil.
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.
Low pressure, very well informed owner about EV's and Nissan Leafs in particular. This was the third dealer I visited but the first small dealer: and I was astounded by the level of knowledge and how forthright they were about their offerings and the limitations of the cars.
Very polite, honest, and friendly - they're definitely on my short list for purchasing a car! (I'm still evaluating options)
First electric. LOVE IT!!

Plenty of power. Handles great. Haven't been to a gas station in two years! Practically maintenance free.
Chris made my purchase easy. We traded in 2 cars for 1 and I was amazed at how fast it went! Love out new VW! Thanks again!
Nice performing with decent feature set
by dannyh from Washington DC

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.
