Well thanks to a math error on Nissan's part, I got the credit plus $1775 and that all happened before the negotiation started! :lol:

When I leased mine, all trims were getting the full credit. I checked the Nissan site and it plainly states that the $7500 fed credit still applies. Interesting that this may not actually apply at the dealership.

So they stopped passing the Federal tax credit on just long enough to screw me??? How delightful. I also didn't get my "prize," even though Nissan just sent me an email reminding me to pick it up within 5 days - at another dealership.

EDIT: Are you sure that you aren't looking at the details for purchasing an SL, as opposed to leasing one? They can't pocket the credit if you buy one. I'm a bit too tired to wade through that site again. Would anyone like to help me out and check Dave's conclusion?

Well now that you mention it, I have not received mine either.... They say allow 4-6 weeks for delivery and it took forever for me to get past the registration screens because I did not take the car I signed up for. Circumstances pretty much forced me to take the first one available that had QC

Neither do I. There seems to be a small discrepancy but without knowing other figures like taxes, title fees, etc. hard to say but it nowhere near the remaining $7500 balance minus the $2725 incentive.

I have to say Nissan has just removed one of their greatest advantages.

So you were mistaken when you said the credit was back on the site? I don't want to waste time there if it isn't necessary.

Nope, its there. I would post pix but I am no longer allowed. As far as credit, you got the standard deal. For May its $5575 for S, $3175 for SV and $2775 for SL and that is straight from the dealer's mouth. (a VERY trusted one)
