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.
Good for the buck.

This car is a good option to buy used to save money on gas. But not a dream car as the design is disappointing in my option. The range as well isn't great. But it's a decent car that I won't mind driving.
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

Once you go electric, you'll never go back! Great value... Get your education about these vehicles--online, magazines, go to a dealer and test drive--they are the future, so start saving money NOW!
Very thorough in determine what my needs in a vehicle were. The follow thru was great.
The Perfect Commuter Car!

If getting around town or back and forth to work is your primary use for your vehicle, you should consider looking at a Leaf. This car has exceeded all our expectations in comfort, performance, build quality, and fun factor. I do all the maintenance work on our vehicles, and have nothing to do on this car but rotate tires and check the brakes once in awhile. Awesome!
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.
can do better than longer range

nimble, prefer the suspension is little more stiffer, better styling, etc.... but bottomline, realiable, quick, easy to drive. what else can you ask for other than longer range.
definitely going back to getting another Leaf soon. plug in 100% EV is very attractive...almost none for the maintenance cost.
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.
Perfect for around the town driving

The car is great for short commutes. If you drive less than 20 miles per day, you can go a few days between charging.
Amazing service, no pressure, multiple guarantees!

Well-designed for its purpose
by JustLeafing from Niwot, CO

This is a durable commuter car that is well-designed for frequent short trips over paved smooth highway. It fits this purpose admirably. The fold-down rear seats offer plenty of luggage space for shopping. Otherwise, the 4-door sedan 5-seat body is perfect for family or car-pooling. The windows are large offering terrific visibility. Comes with a great-sounding stereo and features that I am still realizing, like ability to set alarms and customize effects. Never needing to change oil or add gas is highly satisfying. This seemed like it was such an incredibly great value as a used car such that it seemed worthwhile to purchase a Leaf as a second car to keep mileage from accumulating on my gas-powered Subaru Forester that is now reserved for long road trips or off-pavement adventures. The Leaf's stock 110 volt AC charger has proven plenty adequate for my daily needs. I've not needed to install a 240 charger in my garage. It rides beautifully and quietly on average quality paved roads, corners very well, and its electric motors will out-accelerate most cars with large gas engines.
It's just a very fun and practical car rolled into one.
Caveats are that this is a car that is practical only for regular trips within its driving range, which vary with speed driven, outdoor temperatures and charger station availability at the end points of the trips. The suspension can be noisy and bumpy on rough roads such as becomes obvious crossing RR tracks.
Nissan or a third-party vendor now needs to redesign an optional cargo partitioned insert for the newer model Leafs, in which the battery no longer takes up interior cargo space. The old inserts leave a chasm in newer Leafs that subverts the original good intent of the insert to create a continuous level space when seats fold down while retaining cargo capacity beneath that level. This continuous level area is very desirable when transporting pets, when the chasm can prove dangerous to them.
Unless, apparently, you go to the right dealer! We found Dick Hannah Nissan to be courteous, professional and knowledgeable. Danny listened to us and found us the right vehicle for our needs. I would recommend this dealership without hesitation!
So Happy to be Pollution Free!

Charging is cheap and easy. Plenty of room for tools and even a 6 foot ladder. Peppy enough for me. My first EV was rated at 76 miles so, 107 miles of range is amazing!

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.
Most reliable car I've owned

I want to save the world one baby step at a time!!! From recycling, hybrid to my leaf. And I Thank you!!!
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)
We love our LEAF
by D.Weber from Fremont, OH
March 29, 2017
This is our second LEAF. It is an upgrade from the 2012 with nicer interior, better batter capacity, better charger.... In general this car is great! Maintenance free! Worry free_
They went above and beyond to accommodate me and get me in and out with a car in a real hurry. Jerome was fantastic as well as the man who helped with the paperwork (Sorry I don't remember their name. They deserve better).
I never review anything but these guys earned a positive review.
If you are looking to buy a car, do yourself a favor and hit these guys up.
You won't regret it.
I went to purchase a certified pre-owned Nissan Leaf at this dealership and worked with a great salesman named Brandon. After purchasing a 2015 Leaf, I drove it home and the first thing my wife noticed was that there was a very noticeable dent in the rear driver-side door. I was disappointed as I hadn't noticed the dent on the lot (the car hadn't been washed yet and I couldn't see the dent with it dirty.) I decided to take the car back and just see if they'd be willing to fix the dent, but I wasn't expecting the response I got. After telling them about the dent and another issue I was concerned about (it felt a little shaky like it needed an alignment also) they said, "Well, it sounds like you're not happy with your purchase. Would you like to just trade this one in for another car?" I was pleasantly surprised with their care toward my satisfaction as a customer! I was able to pick out a different 2015 model (one that I felt drove better and was cosmetically in better shape) and there was no extra charge. The salespeople I worked with were excellent and I would definitely recommend this dealership to anyone wanting a Nissan!
Process was relatively painless, they gave me a great deal, I told them what I wanted to pay and they worked with me, would definitely recommend.
