I'm not from up that far, but it's nice to see a Nissan dealer checking in and taking an interest that goes beyond simply waiting for the customers to show up to get their cars. Welcome!

Thanks...I believe the SB area has one of the highest number of Prius owners per capita.
We signed up at least 80 Handraisers here at the dealership alone.

I am here to collect and share information.

Well, I'm still shopping for a preferred dealer, and SB is only 128 miles from here, so it wouldn't be beyond comprehension that we could maybe do business? Right now there seemS to be a dearth of dealers who have any REAL interest, so finding one who does is quite refreshing!

Well...lets share some info...k?

What Nissan has told me is that you have to order from a dealership within a specific geographic area depending upon the registration information.

MiniEV guy here in SB wants to order in SD to get it early, am told he can't.

Let's discuss

Oh...btw we have yet to sell a car over MSRP.

Wow...just read your discussion over on the General forum. This all could get very interesting.

Personally...I have been involved in retailing vehicles over the Internets since 1998.
That experience began with BMW at Cutter Motors here in SB and a forum just like this.
I have held every position within a sales department and have been selling cars in
Santa Barbara since 1994.

Cool, I have been buying cars since the 1960's.

EVNow, I take it I am not to be party to the statement you have recently made here on another thread here.

Misinformation abounds everywhere. On the subject of priority...we are still awaiting the list of those who paid the registration.
We have yet to even consider the issue of prioritizing. Don't believe too much...yet.
