I own a 2008 CRV and 2013 Leaf and plan to "gift' my CRV to my son, who will be graduating from college soon. Just started my research for next car. I went for a test drive at a local dealership. They had six Clarity's in stock. The salesperson stated that sales were slow. Well no wonder, he brings me out to a demo car, the battery is at two bars. I asked to drive a car that had a charge. He physically checked and none of the cars were charged. So I was stuck with a demo that drove on gas. Not a good look. Quite a bit of engine noise, which I have to say turned me off. This is unfortunate, and I could see why potential buyers might be turned off. The sales rep had a really basic knowledge of EV's...it's sad. Aside from this, I found that the AC was not very cold and took quite some time to cool the cabin down. Granted it was a very hot day in LA, but my Leaf and CRV seem to do a better job. Has anybody else had this experience? I'm not sure if this is the car for me. My knee was pushing up against the center console; the right turn camera was distracting ( though i did like that you could see pedestrians, and bikers). Help me out. Don't want to buy gas guzzlers like the Outback, Forester,etc.
