I agree with derkraut, excellent post!tps wrote:I'm probably not alone in thinking that those of us who reserved last year with the original 20,000 are not feeling good when, after all the waiting, we have maybe a 2 week advance over those who didn't reserve back then. It just seems like such a letdown. I'm not sure exactly what Nissan could do to make it up to us.. I do feel as if Nissan's marketing studies are the main beneficiary of holding my $99 for a year, because as it turns out, I feel I get very little.
I know, in another 8 months I might have my LEAF, and when I do, this will all be quickly forgotten. But I wonder how much effort they really put into trying to reward those of us who have stood by them since the original wave of reservations? (Maybe they did put some thought into it and 2 weeks is the best they could come up with.) I'm not trying to be hard on Nissan so much as get people (and maybe Nissan, too) thinking about what they might do to make us feel better about the reservation process.
I do have a suggestion for Nissan to reward us for our loyalty and our $99. That is to allow us to order our LEAFs at the SAME MSRP as the 2011 folks!
Like that will ever happen! But that is my suggestion to Nissan.
