Sun for all the free energy!
Nissan Juke Wheels - upgraded Continental tires
|Love that Nissan built this EV because they wanted to and |
sold it to consumers because they believe in the EV future!
1-8-11 Update: Still love the Leaf. I never drive in ECO
mode, never shy away from using climate control to conserve
energy. We sometimes plug in at home on the weekends
between errands, but otherwise, we drive it and love it.
The only time we didn't drive it was when we drove to the
Midwest for Xmas. Otherwise, this car fulfills all our in
town driving needs. It is very quick off the line and I've
never had any reason to take it to his maximum speed even
though the speed limit on highways around me are 75mph.
4-24-2 Update: Added sunroof from Webasto (930 model). Installed by Dealer Source LTD in Austin. Great addition to the car in looks and comfort!!
6-9-12 Update: Changed OEM wheels/tires for Continentals with Juke wheels. Handling VASTLY improved!
