I agree completely!! Mkjayakumar comes off as pretty arrogant. He obviously doesn't understand the market in Kansas City.eclecticflower wrote:mkjayakumar:
Do you really think we're enjoying this huge hassle? NO! We're not. There in TX you have cars on the lot - lucky you! Here in KC we have - demos! They got here in early March and each dealer only got one. We weren't allowed to order online until that opened up March 1st, ahead of the dealers getting their demos. We learned from reading the forum that AV was a scam and we've done what we could to get our own electricians involved instead. Some of us have older homes with inadequate electric (I needed my service upgraded anyway - the box is at capacity). If I'd have gotten Ingineer's upgraded EVSE, I still would have had to upgrade my service to get a more powerful plug in my garage, since no other appropriate option exists there. The others here (Tom & Eric) have had their own electrical issues. Nope, no Federal credit for the EVSE here, that I've found looking - but correct me (Tom & Eric) if I'm wrong. BTW, our "friendly dealers" don't even advertise this car (very rare). I'm pretty tired of seeing the Nissan Tent Event commercials about their other cars with no mention of the LEAF. Pretty aggravating. Any time I've mentioned the LEAF to coworkers, they have no idea about it and never knew it existed. Friends and family don't get why I'm buying this car, either, as their bent on getting into their luxury ICE cars and too busy looking down their noses at me thinking outside the box. This is just my personal experience. Tells you what we're working with here. We're very excited to be getting our cars soon. Don't take away our fun!
The tax credit for the charging station and installation expired the end of last year. That's one of the reasons I had mine installed last August.ksnogas2112 wrote:Kathy...there is an evse federal tax credit for 2011 that may extend to 2012 that would cover up to 30% of the cost of the evse. I don't know if it's evse + installation.
Oops.. perhaps wrong choice of words of 'hilarious and pathetic'. Sorry.. I don't understand Kansas that much, but my main observation was on folks in the large metros that have Leafs in the lot, and still go through a similar frustrating long waits. Oh well, this is Kansas topic anyway.ericvoll wrote: I agree completely!! Mkjayakumar comes off as pretty arrogant. He obviously doesn't understand the market in Kansas City.
