Our beloved 2008 Acura is dying, our son drives it at this point. I'm thinking of replacing it with a cheap used LEAF. The budget is cheap, don't really want to spend more than what I can dump the Acura at CarMax for. I can find used LEAF's for 5-7k fairly regularly, early year (2011/2012) SL models. What I don't know is what I should be watching for. Is the 2011 going to work as a commuter car? Range isn't much of an issue, but I know the early models had low range and, if I recall, a reputation for really drastic range reductions in even moderately cold weather (i.e. 30s and 40s). Would some kind soul give me a 5 minute lesson on what I should be looking for if I check out these older model LEAFs?
