I'll receive it Tuesday.


Congratulations! So, will you be the first customer in Quebec?


A few thousand km away: I checked the web site this morning for the status of my order and it says "At VANCOUVER port". This would suggest that the cars have been sitting there, it was just a matter of matching orders to customers.

So, any guesses how long it will take to get from Vancouver to Victoria? Heck, I'd happily hop on the ferry this morning if there were a way to pick it up from Vancouver! I expect that the (Victoria) dealer will be contacting me soon.

Saw that too. Did you notice when Carwings got activated? Mine says back in August. Shouldn't this get activated after you get the car, and not 3 months before you even start using it? There's only a subscription for 3 years, right? I don't want to give up 3 months of that time before the car even arrives.


Hi "myev". I saved the text of the "NISSAN LEAF™ TELEMATICS SUBSCRIPTION SERVICES AGREEMENT". It says:

This Agreement is effective on the original and first purchase or lease date of your Nissan LEAF™ from Nissan and remains in effect for three (3) years thereafter ("Initial Term").


Presumably the purchase date is the date that you actually get the car.

On the leaf.nissan.ca portal, under "enable CARWINGS", mine say: "account activated: 29-Sep-2011" which is the date I activated it.


In the portal I see August 18 for the activation date. And if you log into the CARWINGS site, and look under Manage Account, then Edit/Add vehicle, the same date appears there. In my case, there's already a guy driving my car - Preston Wong is the current driver.
Maybe this isn't my car at all.

Nissan was able to match me up with a White SL with QC (about a week ago, sorry for the lack of updates), and the delivery status recently went from "At VANCOUVER compound warehouse" to "At VANCOUVER port". The dealer said the car has now been put into dealer inventory, and they're now waiting for the car to be delivered, which should be next week.

I was considering leasing, but I talked to the dealer and they said that the Nissan lease rate is 6.9% for a 3 year lease, which seems much higher than the US rate. Payment would be $864, or $967 including tax. Residual was the same as in the US, 45%. At that rate I think I'll just buy.

I'm getting more convinced that someone else has the car I'm supposed to get. The status went from "at rail" to "unavailable" back on October 15, which I gather indicates that it's not on a train any more, but in some compound lot, and just needs to get to the dealer by truck. The dealership's telling me it'll be on their lot within the week (last week), 100%. They've apparently been invoiced for it and everything, and nobody seems to know where it is. Anyone have any suggestions on who I can ask at Nissan?

Thanks,
Steve

Just received the first LEAF in Quebec, from Cité Nissan in Montréal.
Tomorrow, I'll get the green license plate that comes with it.
There was 4 photographers (one was a friend of mine), and there will be a press release tomorrow am about the delivery.
Didn't have much time to play with the car just yet, but I'm happy with everything I've discovered so far.

I called the dealer as I was a little concerned about the delivery status on the web changing today from "At VANCOUVER port" to "not available". I was hoping the reason was that the car had arrived at the dealer, and indeed it has. I should be able to pick it up tomorrow.

I'll be the first Leaf owner in Victoria.

Picked my car up on Wednesday, from Southside Nissan! They said I was the first consumer delivery in BC, although there was no media coverage like you guys back east. There was a news story about a university delivery a week or so ago though.

Only two minor problems, they seem to have forgotten the bumper protector and rear mat I ordered, and Carwings says "no service" when I try to connect. Has anyone else had problems with Carwings? Other than that, I'm very happy with the car! Some people were worried about the SPX EVSE not working with charge timers, but it seems to be working just fine.
