We bought a Bolt! It's a massive upgrade from the Leaf. Having 250 miles of range compared to 80 miles is a big deal for my wife, and we'll be using it for more roadtrips. Never could do that with the Leaf.

My favorite feature so far is the regen lever on the steering wheel. Regen is powerful in this vehicle.

A nice side benefit of the Bolt is, my wife can charge for free at work. Because the range is longer, she doesn't need to charge at home ever, really, unless we go on a roadtrip. We also aren't constantly topping the battery up at 100% so it should last a LOT longer. 8 year, 100k mile warranty.

If anybody is in the Austin TX area and wants a 2015 Leaf for $11k, message me.

Congrats on the Bolt!

I would consider a Bolt if I were in the market for another car.

Thanks IZ!

We took care of some of the basic things that will help us appreciate the vehicle for a long, long time, hopefully:

- Window tint (also helps with efficiency)
- Seat covers
- Steering wheel cover

The underbody isn't as flat as I expected, but realistically I'm not going to change it any time soon.

The Bolt is awesome. I'm still happy to drive it, every single chance I get.
