Yet One More From Seattle

Wed Mar 30, 2011 8:20 pm

...though, alas, one who won't be seeing her Leaf for some while yet, she suspects.

Despite initial interest, I held off on actually putting myself on the list until I'd had a chance to drive one during the promotional tour they did last year. Quite enjoyed the drive, but now suffering for playing it safe... registered as soon as I was out of the car post-test drive, but I'm probably quite a ways down the list! Oh, well. :(

I've been lurking here and reading for several months and decided I should finally register, maybe say 'hello.' (And to note that Ray from Campbell-Nelson's participation on these forums has convinced me that when my number DOES eventually come up, it's worth my time to head north and get the car from him rather than picking one of the ones closer in to the city.)

That done, I'll probably return to lurking. :)

Yes, welcome.

I picked mine up today and couldn't be happier. It's really a very cool car, not just a very green one.

I waited almost a year, as almost everyone here has, and though it was a trying year at times, I consider it worth the wait.

I admit, despite my excitement about a green vehicle, I was a little skeptical about how it would feel to drive. Would it feel like a golf cart, for instance? But after getting to test drive one during the marketing tour, I was thrilled with how fun it was to drive... so, definitely looking forward to when my number eventually pops up. :)

Well, Nissan reopened reservations today. :D

Reservation fee paid, had a pleasant phone conversation with Ray from Campbell-Nelson shortly thereafter, and order has been placed. I think this calls for a Snoopy Dance of happiness!

Got ours from Ray at Campbell-Nelson. We've been treated very well and would go back to buy another car, not just a Leaf from C-N.

Why wouldn't you buy your second LEAF from them?

I interpreted that to mean that they would buy any Nissan, as well as the Leaf, from C-N...

Oh! Okay, yes, that makes more sense; when I read it all tired, I mentally swapped the order of 'not' and 'just' and became an object lesson in why one should not forum past midnight. :)

Question, Packet --

Is it Firefox on my PC that's messing with your signature, or does it really look like this?

If that's how it's supposed to look, then I would surmise that it, and your forum name, are somehow related to your occupation.
