First, I don't believe that a dealer will sell a car at a loss. I know in my case I bought with the VPP program, and incentives that Nissan provided. Those are not paid by the dealer, they are paid by Corporate. Now who knows if Nissan Corporate is making money. But I can't see them selling as many as they do and not make money. Of course they can leverage the profits from their other sales.
Back to the thread - we have 5 dealers in our area and i have charged at 2 of them and they have working chargers and have no problem with anyone stopping in to charge. I have been invited to come in and partake of the refreshments in the service area lounge as well. In one case I know the dealer has allowed a Tesla to charge. It just makes business sense to treat possible car buyers with respect and kindness. I don't understand when they don't. An interesting anecdote is someone will tell an average of 100 people of a bad experience, and 10 people of a good experience. I know for me that is true. I remember ALL my bad car dealer experiences!
