This was my third dealership I was visiting to buy my new Hyundai. Other dealerships (especially their GMs) were arrogant and somewhat disrespectful in negotiating the price. However, Mudaser (sales advisor) was very honest and friendly out of all my car purchasing experience in my last 10 years.
What I expected
May 31, 2018
There was nothing new to this leaf. I've researched them a lot and test drove one other one. This one was on par with what I've seen/drove. My mine focus was on the drive range depletion while driving. I drove 20 miles but only lost 15 miles in drive range thanks to the braking regeneration.
Toyota has a recall on engine. Koons Tysons Corner Toyota dealer informed me and completed the check-up and updated the software. The entire process is streamlined, fast, and professional.
It's great. But it only has a 50 mile range.

If you have specific destinations. And don't make any side trips. You should come home with 18 to 21 miles left. The 2012 leaf has a 50-mile range. The car is reliable. But it's not built for long distances. When I bought it. I didn't understand range. So I get nervous if I go too far. The computerized voice tells me once the range hits 11 miles to charge it. And there are electric charging stations, but you have to buy a membership to use them. The price is cheap. And there are a few free charging stations. But you have to look for it. And I have charged it in the rain. But I take extra precautions like putting towels on top of the extension cord and putting a towel on where the plug goes in the car. I really think I should have gotten a hybrid. Because I use the gasoline-powered car to go longer distances. Overall, I still save thousands of dollars on gasoline by using the leaf. Maybe hundreds. And the car shakes a lot of the road is bumpy. So don't drink any water before traveling. But if the road is smooth, then the car is a great drive.
I really regret not going to Action Automotive sooner! Every other dealer I visited used high-pressure/high-stress sales tactics, had zero respect for my very busy work schedule, and not one of them could even get my name right!
Ben had everything ready to go, and got to work right away on beating my bank's finance rate. I was in and out quickly, with no pressure, no stress, and a great rate on my loan. Would DEFINITELY recommend!!!
FUN Battery EV, low maintenance/great safety stats
by lspooz from Greensboro

Funky style exterior, a blast to drive, safety ratings are great - a perfect car for college student/second car (LOW maintenance/no gas to buy).
Only drawback is limited range, so make sure battery capacity is good when purchasing used (ideally would still be within the original 60 month warrant)
The dealership it???s self and the staff working here are the best! Amazing help from all staff, even taking me to the bank to get the check.
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.
Dominic was great to work with. I found out about the dealership from a friend who has purchased 4 vehicles from there, and I have told several people that they should check consider it when they decide to purchase their next car truck.
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.
I bought my car from offlease 5 days ago and I just wanted to say Damian was great! Very proffesional and patient with me! Michael Katz was great as well! Also everyone else was great from the guys cleaning the car, the lady at the gate, finance person etc. Overall great experiance and So far Im happy with my car choise! I would recomend offlease to everyone who is looking to buy used car. Just make sure when they run your credit to ask them to limit to only few. You don???t want a lot of hard inquiries! Violeta
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).

Too soon to tell as we've just purchased the car, but at this point the car feels solid and drives well, with good acceleration.
Visibility is good. A bit tight in the cockpit with limited storage.
Should prove to be excellent around town and on shorter (150 miles) trips or less. Looking forward to driving this car and not having to stop at gas stations!
I responded to one of the internet specials, and received useful email responses to my questions. I am so glad that Sven was available when I visited the dealership without an appointment. He was very honest, outlining what was available and possible benefits for me to consider.
Nice performing with decent feature set

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.
The Salesman and Sales Manager were very accommodating. They were able to provide the vehicle that I wanted. We are very happy with the vehicle.
Best car I've owned

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.
We were searching for a good deal on a hard to find Nissan model for our growing family. We had already driven once to another MD dealership that tried to swindle us. We found another van a few days later, but this time at Criswell. We were weary to make the trip from VA because of our previous experience with the other dealership. We asked for a quote to be emailed to us and Rafael immediately obliged. We were satisfied with the price and after several other conversations and follow-ups, we decided to make the trip! We completed our transaction in about 2 hours and the vehicle was accurately described, price accurate, and had a pleasant experience with all staff (Raphael, Moin, and Matin) we encountered. We are just thrilled with our long-awaited purchase and believe Criswell Nissan is honest and friendly.
Made the switch to an EV!

Love driving this car! And never having to stop at the gas station again! Very responsive and I can plug it into a regular outlet to charge. Easy commuter/ around town car. Comfortable interior with thoughtful design details.
Best and fastest service department was out in 35 mins for an oil change the quickest i ever been and the staff was very friendly
Good around town full electric car

Plenty of space inside for 5 people, and storage space is decent. Nice kick when you put your feet on the pedal since it's electric. Pretty comfortable drive and handles well. Happy I don't need to go to gas station and spend any money on gas. My only complaint is battery range which needs improvement.
I checked with many other dealers advertising deals which were only the beginning of so many additional charges that they were just bait. Not real. At Sport they were 100% real. Nothing unexpected. They also were very attentive and made buying a new car quick, easy and the real joy that it should be.
It's like driving the future!

This car has been a great commuter car. It's been reliable and easy to maintain! The electric torque and power makes such a fun driving experience! Charging this car with a full charge only costs about $1, to provide up to about 70-80 miles commute. The A/C is by far the best performing of any car I have owned!
