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.

Better by far than the original Leaf

This SV version of the Leaf gives us all we could ever ask for., almost. More range is exceptional. The e-pedal is easy to use and makes driving very relaxing. The performance is also exceptional. Fast as a rocket. The reliability of EV's is unmatched. No need for oil changes, filter changes, lube jobs. Brake pads last much longer than a ICE car because of the regenerative breaking built into these cars. We couldn't be happer with this car.
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.
We had a great time. Sevice was great by all the staff. Stop by just to see the lot. And we ended up with a great car at a good price. Thank you very much.
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.
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.
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

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!
All around great service. Friendly and honest service. Comster service was always available. I recieved my vehicle within four days after the completed process, of paper work.
Best car I've owned
by Happy Leaf Owner from San Diego, CA
July 1, 2018
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 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
December 3, 2018
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)
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!!
After visiting several of the typical dealerships I walked away confused and Unsatisfied. After visiting Carvana.com I picked out a vehicle to my liking and price point fill out the paperwork got approval I had my new vehicle delivered to my front door. Most typical dealerships you spend half a day walking away with an overpriced vehicle in an overpriced interest-rate. Carvana has made it an enjoyable experience and it can be done from the luxury of your Home. Thanks Carvana.
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.
My experience with carvana was and still is very good. I wanted to sell my can a few months ago and Madison was super nice. Undirtunately I had to cancel the sell bc of personal reasons. Now I???m again in the process of selling and Madison is super patient with me and so nice!

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!
This man has sold me 3 Jeep Grand Cherokee in the last 9yrs I really don???t know to much about the other dealership salesman because each and every time that who asked for and send my friends too!!!
The Perfect Commuter Car!
by MnBueller from Duluth, MN

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!
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.
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).
I purchased a 2015 Nissan Altima from Sven. He found me the car color I wanted, and even worked with my credit. He stayed late passed the dealership closing and I Was so thankful.
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.
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.

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.
