Re: New England Leafs?

Mine is open here in CT.

I guess now I have to call Nissan about the waiver for the assessment. Has anyone else in New England done this yet? And where are you getting your charger?

Thanks,

Kevin in CT

I am in NH. I called the day after the "Home Assessment" tab opened. It was very painless.

Yes, I actually had the waiver put on a week ago. I accepted the RAQ yesterday and ordered.

Bought the Schieder Electric EVSE from Home Depot, if you checkout the EVSE threads, you will see a picture of it installed in my garage.

Thanks for the tips. I guess I was Stunned to get the Email about ordering sooo soon ;) (although Nissan did say Fall 2011) I was getting in a tizzy about what to do about the charger station. I just spent the last hour or so going through the EVSE section of the forum. Also I just got some information about the Schneider units. A friend of mine when to a showing in Hartford Area last tuesday and brought me back a bunch of stuff about EV and chargers. So I do have the Schneider Brochure in hand. And my Brother in law is a electrician ;) Ofcourse I may have to Buy Him a Charger to pay for the installation of mine! I think I might need substantial reworking of my electrical panel to add the outlet and I was going to have him add a transfer switch for a new generator anyway.

Thanks again for the help.

One other thing, Where are you looking to Buy your Leaf? My nearest certified Leaf dealer is in Rhode Island. I am in Mystic, CT not to far from the RI border.

I have not contacted him as of yet since I got the update on the dashboard.

]Happy to see someone else in Connecticut ordered a Leaf. I thought when our state was opened a flood of people would be ordering one. Still many don't know about this car or have the wrong information.

Update -- I just placed my order in Western Massachusetts.

I had to stop in at the dealership on Saturday and explain how my RAQ shows up on some kind of dashboard since they didn't know about it. The sales manager pulled it up right then and there on the computer. I saw they were allotted only one LEAF for the month so MSRP seems pretty reasonable to me. Luckily I own two Nissans purchased from the dealership so he knows me and as a "loyal Nissan guy" I was able to get the edge over any competition for that one allotted car.

Now the next phase of the waiting begins. Also awaiting the backordered Schneider EVSE from Home Depot. Time to clear out the garage, get that garage door opener and get ready for the car's arrival in the worst part of the New England winter.

listless, I am in Eastern MA (Boston area) and placed my order on Thursday, my dealer had 3 Leafs in their allocation, I was #1.

I updated the "leasing" spreadsheet, it you look under the leasing threads, near the end, I posted a newly modified google spreadhsheet that applies to MA (our sales tax, DMV fees, etc)

Well I called Nissan today and got the home assessment waiver. Painless it definitely was ;)
However my next question is this, I had chosen a dealer in Rhode Island as my preferred dealer. But it doesn't show up on my dashboard now another local dealer does. Prior to this, only the RI dealer was certified not the local dealer. And ofcourse I don't see anyway to change it right now. Could this be due to RI not on the Select Area list for the next rollout? I opened my area to 100 miles and it was showing dealers in Mass, CT and NY not RI.

hmmmm,

Kevin

The dealer I originally picked 10 miles away was not availble either, turns out they did not complete their Leaf certification, so I was not able to order from them. No problem, there are other dealers about the same distance away, in different directions, so I just went with one of them. Initially they had all of the dealers availble to choose, the ones that have not completed their certifications, have fallen off the list...

Hi Mitch,

I just got an email from the local guy. He said the service department is still not certified but that he was. So I have to look elsewhere which I prepared to do anyway. Its just that when you choose your dealer through the dashboard it says they are all for the most part certified. Its not till you pull up the map that it shows who is really certified. Pretty frustrating.
