The first letter (1) means MADE IN US.
Year 2015.
Please notice that this is a LEAF (an electric car made by Nissan)
They are ALL "AUTOMATIC"
I have a strong feeling that you do not know this.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
