Call me a product of the 1980's, but when I hear "ho ho ho" I always think of the Fruity Pebbles Christmas commercial.

"Ho ho ho I'm hu hu hungry"



Nissan has been opening the RAQ's at the begining and end of the months, so I'm expecting a large number of RAQ's. Hopefully those with later than April handraiser dates will be able to RAQ.

Not to mention our friends and a few regulars here in North Carolina and one in Florida and the rest in SC, GA and AL.

I'm currently trying to get all the D.C. area dealers to make me their best offer which I'm currently blogging on http://aecn.timehorse.com/. So far, I've contacted 7 in Northern Virginia but only got a pitch from Nissan of Chantilly. Pretty basic stuff so far. Nothing out of the ordinary, though Sheehy of Springfield has sent some interesting information that I'm trying to confirm. I think what we've been missing is that no-one mistakes LEAF for LEASE in e-mail so I think that's why I've got more hits. Well, that and the fact that I'm a blog reporter that mentions the DC EV facebook group and this forum in every e-mail since those are the places I've been sharing my results.

Anyway, 08:48 on the first and the Dashboard still ain't opened... No surprise, though, I personally expect most of our east coast orders will be between Christmas and MLK day.

Has anyone in the new areas been able to schedule an assessment through the dashboard? I'm assuming everyone will need to either have an assessment or get a waiver before being allowed to order. I already have the waiver so I'm not sure I'll get an email about the assessment or see anything change in the dashboard until its time to order.

good job on the email timehorse.

I will try coaxing Fredericksburg to get set up. Last I talked to them they said they should be certified "soon"

I will tell them today, they need to do it "NOW"

I wish those in other markets the Best of luck while attempting to shop around. There is a fundamental difference between the later RAQ launches from thr initial one. Dealers did not have a cap as to how many orders we could take/get. So the more the merrier and discounting made more sense if you could obtain a significant number of orders. New markets will start with dealers hiving limits from day one. However generous, that changes the equation. Dealers who are now being solicited for quotes do not even know how many Leaf's they are going to be allowed to sell. This would make it hard to decide how much to sell it for. Seems like the best you could hope for at this point is to start the same way this forum did a long time ago by identifying who is at least willing to say they will not sell above MSRP and work your stratagy from there.

1. Make sure you can access your dashboard via http://www.NissanUsa.com/leaf (call CS if you cannot and request help).

2. Request that the "AV waiver" be enabled (if you are NOT scheduling an AV assessment) BEFORE your dashboard is due to be enabled for RAQ. If you do not get it BEFORE, the RAQ might NOT get enabled. Call 1-877-664-2738, the LEAF Customer Service Line.

3. Shop for a "deal" BEFORE your RAQ opens. Call the dealer, ask to talk to the LEAF (EV) Specialist in Sales, or the Sales Manager. After they confirm a deal that you are willing to accept, choose that dealer as your Preferred Dealer (PD), and check the "Allow Contacts" checkbox.

Then, you will be ready for your dashboard's RAQ to be enabled.
