Welcome home to our new 2017 Nissan Leaf! Brand new, blue pearl metallic, all electric. No more oil changes, emissions checks, or trips to the gas station. No more worrying about getting stranded somewhere because the alternator goes out – again.
Our wonderful Toyota Corolla was 12 years old and had 319,000 miles on it, so it had a good run. We spent quite a bit last year replacing a succession of failing parts. When the indicator lights starting coming on again last week, we knew it was time. It was a tearful parting from the best car that I have ever owned. The Leaf has some big shoes to fill!
