I went through this with another CT dealer and they were quite specific, as is stated in the circular, that this is only for a 2018 and can not be used with any other Nissan incentives. If you get it, either the incentive was changed or something “interesting “ is going on.

I also went to another closer dealer and got a bunch of no’s also. Called Milford and they said they are one of the biggest Leaf dealers, had 22 new on the lot and no used in stock because they sell quick. They said they had no problem using it on a 2019.
I was there when he called because there was a problem, the electric bill was in my wife’s name only. Person on the other end said as long the address was the same it was good to go. Sooo. I know there’s fudge room on a trade but was expecting $7000 got $8000, plus $7500 discount/rebate. Also Mass has $2,500 state and the $7,500 federal. Math on my 2015 ended up being $120 month 40 months not counting what was Owed $11,000. Trade was in good not great shape. Had a dent, some scrapes and a previous accident. 12 bars still but I expect one dropping soon. 49,500 miles.

Drove there in my 2015 all highway slow 55 MPH, no heat in eco. Got there with “- -“. On the way home in the 2019 nice heat 75 MPH and had 80 left on the “guess o meter”

I see now - Milford MA not Milford CT! I went on their website and no mention of only for a 2018 - Good deal!

New here, just picked up my 2019 SV with Tech and some other items (MSRP was 36.5k). We don't have any incentives from Nissan here in Arizona minus some APR stuff but we do get a $3k fleet rebate through either utility, which I used. Got them to 29.5 with the fleet rebate and OTD was about 32.5k. Started messing with my taxes as well and it looks like I'll be able to use $7498 out of the $7.5k federal tax credit so that's great as well. Think I got a decent deal and the car has been great so far. First EV and loving it

Good deal. Do you live in one of the urban areas, or someplace where it gets chilly at night?

No, not really, I live in east Mesa. For instance, we'll get to 45 tonight where I'm at so not chilly but will get into the 30s at times during the winter. And in the summer if we get into the 80s at night, it's cool for us ha :) Definitely interested to see how it does during the summer here. Commute is about 95 miles round trip and we have charging stations at work.

You'll definitely want to keep an eye on the battery temp "gauge" in Summer. Park in the shade if possible then, and charge at night.

Realizing this is off-topic:
We have a garage here in Houston - I have monitored the garage floor temps and battery temps and have been amazed how stabilizing (cooling) the garage can be. Of course the opposite effect when compared to having to park on hot, black pavement during the daytime. If you can find a shady spot to park during work hours, it can make quite a difference in overall average battery temps during the extremely hot summer months. I don't have to quick charge and limited to 3.3 kw power, so temp rise due to charging (mainly at night) is not a problem. I do keep battery degradation information and post periodically (have a replacement lizard battery).

^^ Absolutely.
We mostly use our LEAF for errands and make a game of finding parking in the shade. If we stretch our legs a bit in walking to the destination then even better. At home during the day we park under a tree on dirt with a dead plant life cover. My monthly temperature checks of the battery have always been below 80F although daytime ambient summer temps usually peak in the 90s. It of course helps that our night times temps are usually in the 60s F.
