    Friday I waked up to 2016 and it reminded me of the short height of a Civic. So this morning I took a Leaf for a test drive.

    The height is right but my long arms were bent the whole time. I like the quiet and the 30 kWhr battery brings the range up just short of 120 miles to Nashville.

    Used Leafs are quiet affordable but won't reach Nashville. Still our 03 ain't broke and easily goes 500 miles on one tank.

    Still a nice ride if the driver side seat could get 1-2 more inches.

    Wonder what's happening to the used Leafs?

    On the recent Leaf sales thread on InsideEV's, #EVnut commented that many of the Leaf's in CA had 2-yr leases. So that means when we look at the EV sales in CA, I guess a lot of folks are on their second EV or plug-in.
