If they did it would probably be out of date. Use plugshare?

Thanks. But plugshare has no filter option for that. I’ll play with it a bit.

Cheers.

It has a filter for CHAdeMO.

Depending on Nissan dealers for CHAdeMO isn't a great idea. Some don't welcome vehicles not bought/leased from there. It also might be broken or ICEd besides being inaccessible after hours.

The one time I used a Nissan dealership EVSE it went like this:

1. Stand in line at the service desk to ask to charge
2. Wait for the one person able to activate the EVSE

It is an emergency option *only*

Thanks fir the heads up. Question came up in a conversation. Didn’t know how to answer. We have never charged at a dealership.

Sagebrush is right, at least generally speaking. There are a few nice Nissan dealerships with always-available DCFC stations (at least for customers) but don't expect that as the default.

It is totally YMMV.

The Nissan dealer where I did try using their DC FC, I succeeded numerous times. I think long ago, I also had to go ask for someone to come out to run their fob. Eventually, the station became networked onto ChargePoint (but was still free of $ to use) so I no longer had to bug anyone.

But, it was totally inaccessible after hours. Sometimes, there was a line. I think they switched it over to EVgo eventually but that made it moot since I no longer had a Leaf w/CHAdeMO. That one was returned at end of lease near the end of July 2015.

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... ater&ifg=1 was a post of someone I know using a free DC FC at Boardwalk Nissan in Redwood City. This is near highway 101 and is a busy travel corridor. They said in Aug 2013 "Spent 30 min in line for QC at Boardwalk. There are five more LEAFs behind us." Anyway. that DC FC became no longer free and I never even used it once since it's nowhere near home nor work and I wouldn't want to depend on it. (I actually leased from that dealer.)

That is my point exactly. For routine travel it cannot be relied upon.

^^^
+1

Thus, I would only look at Nissan dealer DC FCs just as another possibility/choice, like any others that exist.

It really is silly and unfortunate that Nissan's efforts on this in the US are so lackluster vs. https://www.tesla.com/supercharger, https://www.tesla.com/trips and related UI in their cars.
