A year and a half with a Nissan LEAF electric car by Sam Koblenski

Sam Koblenski, a resident of Wisconsin, is writing a series of articles about his experience owning a Nissan LEAF electric car for the past year and a half. So far he's only published part 1, which is about his adventures (and misadventures) actually buying the car and driving it back home at the limit of the EV's range and after the dealership forgot to fully charge it...

It's a nice piece, and I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of it. You can read part 1 here.

Note that since Sam bought his LEAF, the car has become more widely distributed around the U.S. and the world, and charging stations - including fast charging ones - have popped up everywhere (Nissan has announced they're building 500 around the US). So if you buy now, even from a dealer far from home, your experience should be a lot less stressful...

If you have a LEAF, or another plug-in vehicle, I'd love it if you could share your experience with us in the comments below. Did everything go according to plan? What are the most important things you learned since owning an EV/PHEV?
