4 hours - I don't understand why. It wasn't like we were negotiating on price lol.. A little bit of time was with the reporter, a little bit getting the features explained to us (he had a checklist to go through), a little bit on the test drive, a little bit signing papers.. But we spent way too much time twiddling our thumbs. My wife actually left to try to go pick up some food and bring it back.


What option did you get one the car???

this is really cool but I hope there will be many more in the next few days. When did you receive your scheduled message from Nissan (ordered date also)? I am expecting that Santa Cruz is a lower priority location but then Petaluma had the first.

nice! one of the concerns i had was the mileage limitation especially since the Leaf would be the primary transportation car. 15,000 is perfect. had done a rough guess of over 14,000 so that will fit perfectly!!

what was your interest rate?

I did not know the lease allowed 15K miles a year. That just got more interesting to me. Thanks for posting.

I ordered on 8/31. On 11/22, I received an email saying my vehicle is scheduled to arrive at my deal in January (is that what you meant by scheduled message)? My dashboard has been all over the place and now it says the week of Jan 5.

I ordered an SL with only the Quick Charge option - MSRP $35240. But, the car I got also had the Floor Mats added so the MSRP was $35410. I got it for $1k under MSRP: $34,410.

The interest rate was 4.9% (Money factor of ~.00204)

They first quoted me with a 12K/year lease and then I asked for the 15K/year. I think it ended up being an extra $10/month.

Congrats, omkar. :) I heard the 4 hour recommendation too - that must be coming down from corporate. I hope to get mine this week. We've got a little girl coming soon, too - in February!

I think the mileage options on the lease pretty much gave me what I needed for the New Year. You get the lower payment taking advantage of the $7500 rebate up front. I am thinking this is sounding better all the time. 3 years is perfect to then re-evaluate the EV market and upgrade!
