The unknown is the new Leaf battery longevity. I haven't visited forums recently, but perhaps a year later some data is starting to be collected. Some EV owners will track it on a monthly basis and chart the results.

Don't really care if a Tesla dealer is nearby since the car has no warranty and I'd be doing all repairs myself. Maybe that fact alone should have me take more than my standard 30% reduction... though it all comes down to what the seller is willing to accept. Based on Rich Rebuilds videos, repairing a Tesla as an owner sounds like a PITA. Then again, I expect any manufacturing defects should have shaken out by now.
