If it were not for Nissan setting it up so we can take delivery of the first cars where we want to and not have to go to the dealer to find one on a lot that the dealer purchased, they would all be over MSRP. I thank Nissan for coming up with this brilliant way of rolling out a new vehicle, and allowing us to get the car for MSRP.

You'll have a hard time getting the dealer to sell for less than MSRP also because of this system. The dealers do not order the cars as in a normal purchase, the dealer will take delivery of the car only if we say that is where we (the buyer) want to purchase it. The dealer car orders will happen in the second wave of purchases.

I feel sorry for Volt buyers. I've contacted my Chevy dealer and they will definitely be charging over MSRP for the initial Volts. I have been on a wait list for the Volt since the beginning, but I am not going to pay over MSRP. If I still purchase one, it will have to be when the dealer cant get them off the lot and is willing to sell for MSRP or below.
I think you're right and make a good point.

Of course there's always room to negotiate financing terms, and dealers are generally happy to do that :)

Thank you so much for the Younker Nissan info. Curious what you heard from the other Seattle area dealers - Bellevue specifically.
They refused to confirm one way or the other. So, though they are the closest to me, I won't be buying from them.

EVNow,

I received an email from Nissan of the Eastside agreeing to sell the vehicle for MSRP with no additional markups. I think I'll still keep the Younker selection since they are actually advertising this to everyone but at least it seems that if you press the Bellevue dealership, that they will respond accordingly. I should note that the initial contact I received said "at this time" which is basically useless. It took a follow up email to get the direct response and promise.

Nice, they have wisened up. They wouldn't confirm to me after multiple email exchanges - even after I told them the other two had written to me with promises of MSRP sale - and I won't put them as preferred vendor at Nissan website if they can't promise.

Wish mwalsh had turned me on to this site sooner.

Just read this thread, then logged into Nissan's LEAF web site and discovered I can no longer edit my dealer choice. Can still change vehicle configuration, but not dealer selection. Hmmmmm.

Weird, I can still click on "locate a dealer". When I do that it defaults to just showing the dealer I selected, but if I type my zip in, select the mile range and click "GO" it appears I can select other dealers.

Strange, I just changed my "preferred" dealer to "none selected" about a week ago.

For the last month or so, one could have only one "preferred" (understandable), and also only ONE "allow contact" dealer.

Originally, one could select several "allow contact" dealers.

Dr P, if you were speaking in terms of changing your preferred dealer, there is a quirk in the system that you have to deselect your current one first.
