Re: Anyone in Georgia?

Sun Aug 07, 2011 6:32 pm

I made my reservation on Thursday, spoke with Gwennet Nissan on Friday. I will need to get pass the charger portal before they can give me a quote. I have home eval scheduled for aug 22, I am trying to get the vendor to sale the charger outright so that when the guy shows up he can install it. all he needs is 20 ft of cable and a circuit breaker. They don't carry them on their service trucks and there is no need to come out twice, ( big waste of money and time) I have escallated it to the vendor's customer service folks. I intend to make a trade in and cash difference. Some dealers who want more than MSRP are not going to get my business or other buyers due to the increase price with standard options that folks don't want. Many Dealers in the Georgia area are now certified, it envolved, training techs, having a bay to service the cars. $1500 to 2k under MSRP is normal from Teir 1 sales. We will see how we do and post it. So far the folks at Gwennet have been great to work with and are getting educated in the Leaf process along the way. I would hate to ditch them for a difference in price and wouldn't unless it was a lot of difference.

Welcome to MNL.

The allocations are indeed not great for smaller dealers and help larger dealers. But I guess this was done to placate dealers who cribbed about smaller dealers undercutting the larger dealers.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

And this helps the consumers, how?

You can get a waiver for the home assessment if you are not planning to go with Nissan's AV charging station. Then you can proceed to the next step. I don't know if anyone with a new reservation has gotten to RAQ yet. I wonder if they will move forward quickly or if there is another roadblock lurking out there.

Good luck!

It appears that the fastest route to ordering the Leaf was to go ahead and purchase the dock charger, have my own choice of electrician install it, thus Nissan CS said they will approve me by end of week to get the RAQ done on the portal. Aeroviroment had to change web site qui on portal to allow me to order unit on Credit Card, they told me to ignore the two week delivery time that they ship in 3 days and Dock Charger should be here by Friday or Saturday at latest. I have an Electrician lined up to install it on a Saturday so I am home when it is being done. It is cost wise about the same amount for installing a Hot Tub 240v installation. We'll see how it pans out. I got the waver done via Nissan Cust service call this morning as well.

I got my EVSE installed today :D ! I worked through metroplugin.com. They work with Clipper Creek and Pat Murphy Electric. The EVSE was $995 and the installation was a flat rate $700. It may not be least expensive way to go, but it was good to work with people who had installed EVSEs before. Now I can move our deep freeze back to the garage!

The Nissian vendor for the charger said with the dock and installation they run near to 2k so your ahead of the price. I have ordered the doc and looking for an installer. It should maybe arrive this week and Nissan said I should be getting my email to RAQ this week as well. Got the waver,Got a CS form to fill out and let them know the lag time they have on home inspection, quote, install of the EVSE is just dumb. The Govt rebates are going to end dec 31st so I am pushing to get it all done way before they get slammed.

Federal tax credit doesn't start phasing out until Nissan sells 200,000 EVs. No problem in near future.

Whew that is good to hear, I guess the ending Dec 31st, was to get people motivated to get the leaf as soon as possiable. Still with what is happening in washington, that new 12 Congressional tax dogs could cut them, never know.
