[Caevlist] 2018 Leaf - First Trip Report

It looks like I missed an update: Last Wednesday, took a local 2018 Leaf
SV on a test drive out to the freeway and tried the AV charging station
- indeed, it failed: after it got all the way to "Ready to Charge", it
However, in the process, I verified that the regular SV has the
intelligent cruise control, and they all have e-pedal, which are the
main reasons I wanted the Tech Package, which no one around here has in
an SV. And in fact, the Pro-drive, which adds steering, I actually
found a bit annoying as I felt the car was always fighting me.
So I went ahead and got it - I figure AV won't leave the problem unfixed
for long, and I don't need them for 99% of my trips anyhow. As it turns
out, if it weren't for the battery heating issue, I wouldn't need them
to get to either Seattle or Stanfield either, and it would only be 3
charging stops. But, alas, battery heating makes those trips unlikely.
I'm probably going to pay for my impatience big time in a year or so,
but we'll see what's available then...
