Okay, my home access date is September 8th (in the afternoon). What dates do other Texas folks have? Also, has anybody heard anything about DFW test drives?

I haven't been around here in about a month. I am still pissed at Nissan for these fixed price EVSE installs. I already have the necessary circuit in place. I'm not going to pay someone a couple grand to hook up a couple of wires and turn some screws. I'm at the point where I'm willing to refund my Leaf deposit... the $700 L3 charger option is also testing my limits. Nissan always said that all these cars would have L3 charging. I'm not expecting any L3 chargers in the area, but would I be a fool to buy the car without the option? What are other Texans doing?

Is there a reasonably priced EVSE alternative that I can buy and install myself?

There should be before we can take delivery. But at this moment in time, there is not. Leviton still looks like the best DIY solution.

Can you site your source? I've never seen it anywhere where Nissan said that all cars would come with level three standard.

I am getting my LEAF with no L3 as I do not plan to use any fast charging to extended trips.
So far as I can tell the AV EVSE is the lowest price connector.
I am counting on L1 until the dozen or so EVSE companies all have the home product available.
Possibly I will end up with the AV EVSE (product only)

Mark Perry has said it many times. Then it changed to regional availability, and now this.

I guess Leviton pricing is TBD, but on the bright side I can buy Leviton stuff at wholesale...

If I don't schedule an assessment is it going to create any trouble when ordering opens up?

From the get-go Nissan said that L3 would only be available on the SL. Then they went all quiet on the subject. And then we ended up where we are now.
