It still seems to me that the Fontana deal, if it actually turns out to be real, is the ticket. I'll drive out that far to pick it up and save $1,000... We should know a lot more in a couple of weeks or so!

Honestly, I don't know how they could afford to do that for free after giving $1,000 off msrp. I suspect that we'll see some back pedaling at some point...

I have emailed Santa Monica Nissan and Downtown LA Nissan (both in the Los Angeles area) asking if they know of the Fontana Nissan offer and if they will be matching it. I will post what I hear from them.
Perhaps others of us can ask our local dealers the same.

On the subject of whether Fontana will back pedal....MWalsh had a good post in the dealer thread saying they would get sooooo much flak throughout cyberspace if they did renig. I tend to agree with that assessment. Would be very hard for a dealer to backpedal on offer once it has been posted in this forum.

This is a message for evnow who I believe is the moderator. I suggest changing the name of this thread to Los Angeles County Leafers or something like that since many who are posting are not just from LA City as the title of the thread says now but are from various parts of Los Angeles County

Thanks.

Heard back from Santa Monica Nissan related to my question about whether they would match Fontana Nissan price. They did not answer that question but said that they will provide good after purchase service and that is the reason to choose them. So I take that as a no from them....at least for now.

Apparently the word is spreading! One hopes that it is the beginning of a trend!

I emailed jeff odle (valencia nissan internet sales manager) regarding price matching fontananissan, but he is skeptical about the offer and say will look in to it.

I talked to Danny from Fontananissan on the phone for 10 mins, and he explained to me the ordering process. There is no list or agreement to get into...just reply to nissan order request that you want fontananissan to give you the quote, and once you get the quote back (1000 off msrp should stand, if not you can pick someone else and then that will be end of fontananissan) you can then choose to accept. He sounded genuine in getting our business. Still right now the only thing I can do is wait for nissan's order request.

I had my AV assessment done in Aug 3, so I will give them a couple more days. Mine's a little complicated since I lived in a condo and the breaker box is upstairs away from the garage. I asked them to give me a quote on getting a secondary meter for the EV also.
