LEAF driver leaves me thinking why? Just Why !?!

In the eight years of driving an EV I have witnessed all manner of good and poor charging etiquette and habits. However, none of my extensive experience has adequately prepared me for today’s bizarre charging of a LEAF.

Puhleeze. The charging port is at the front, pull in already!

If you really must reverse into a parking space, consider an EV with a rear charge port like a Tesla.

This is too bizarre. Your comments are most welcome.

Update: 2019-03-14

To better illustrate my attempt at humor here is a perfect example of “how it’s done”

Front Charging Port – Pull In
Rear Charging Port – Reverse In.
This doesn’t have to be difficult.

    Don’t forget where you came from JP ;). I think the why is wrapped around a 20k difference in price tag haha. I think I’d back in for 20k less.

    I have no dog in this hunt however because I drive a gas guzzling F-150.

    Nice choice in color JP, love your new Tesla!

      Thanks for the comment Jeremy.
      FYI The entry level Tesla Model 3 is $8,500 cheaper than the top of the line LEAF. They both go about 220 miles 😉
      BTW Karen is now driving the old LEAF. It’s still going strong.

        I’d be willing to bet that Nissan will be taking some notes as Tesla whips them into shape! So glad to hear your old Leaf is still going strong!

        I LOVE seeing Tesla charging ports where I go. My client, Hilton, has several out front of their headquarters hotel location in McLean VA.

    Since you solicited comments, here is mine: So what? If this is the sort of thing that sets you off, then you might not be a very happy person. The guy in the Leaf isn’t your enemy. The guys who ICE charging stations are.
