The Leaf is fantastic. I think it's a near-perfect urban car for warm climates only. Nissan really did their homework here. It's the best in the class. I bought mine to have free access to carpool. They rescinded it three months later and turned our two major freeways into "FastTrak" where all cars had to pay. So, I went with VW TDI. Oh yeah, motorcycles can still ride free and are the only vehicle that doesn't need a transponder.
