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.

Well, "for the most part" doesn't let me get the Leaf order placed, so was not good enough for me :) My original dealer actually called to tell me they are getting a Leaf in a month, if I want to come down and see it, thats when I told them, they are not showing up on the "RAQ" system, and I had to go with someone else. Not all of the Nissan dealers want to put the money and effort into being Leaf certified, and the ones that have deserve to be rewarded. Its been over 500 days since I reserved on 4/20/2010, I am not going to let a few slacker dealers slow down the process, its not like they havn't had enough time to get prepared for this...

do you know how long I have to wait before I can a quote from another dealer? The dashboard seems locked until I get a response from the current dealer.
Any help would be appreciated.

I think they have 24 hours to respond, not sure as to how it gets "unlocked", as the dealer I picked did respond (twice) the first time they quoted the entire purchase price as the "monthly lease price", I had a few laughs on that one. I rejected it, and they came up with the correct lease figures on the 2nd try, and I accepted it, to get the Leaf ordered. They only had 3 Leafs allocated for October, so I didn't want to doddle around.

From my experience last week, after 24 hours, you are automatically given the option to select another dealer and submit the RAQ again or you can just wait. If you even click on the link to select another dealer (and don't complete it), the original dealer will see your request as if you rejected the quote. I ended up talking to the dealership in this period and had to re-submit the RAQ to the original dealer. They had another RAQ and only one allotted car so I did it on my iPhone right after leaving the dealership.

Ok, I was able to get another quote today. The dashboard did open up after the 24hr period. There is a link listed in tiny letters about requesting another quote which I clicked on. So I got a real quote from a dealer farther away from me. He wants 33630.00 + a Documentation fee so about $34000.00 + tax.

How does this sound??? I believe the tax is Zero here in CT for an EV but I will double check. I didn't pay any for my Honda Civic Hybrid ;)

My RAQ is higher ($38,410 including $850 destination charge), but I am getting the SL, here are my order details:

Yes, I am looking at the SV Ocean Blue, no options. I will have to see what the dealer will throw in ;)

Update: the dashboards for people in New England who have orders submitted is now showing "January 2012" :)

I guess I will be leasing, as I am not willing to wait until my 2012 Federal Tax filing, in 2013 for the $7500 credit. You can always pay of the lease after 3 months...

If you pay off the Leaf after 3 months? What interest charges (and other charges above the MSRP) do you pay in total for the car
