Eco Design Package

Tue Feb 01, 2011 9:13 am

I was wondering if anyone that has taken delivery of their Leaf has received it with the Eco Design Package? I am getting my Leaf in the month of April and 2 weeks ago I tried to cancel that particular accessory after I actually saw what the center console cover looks like. Somebody posted it somewhere and I almost fell off my chair. I don't mind the decals but the center console cover looks kind of gaudy. I was told that my car was already in production, and that I couldn't make any changes, I am stuck with the Eco Design Package. So, I have a few questions:

1) Does the center console cover match the color of the car or do they all come in the color blue like the one I saw in a accessory picture?

2) Does it look like it is a snap-on or stick-on so as to be easily removed?

3) Finally, how does it look in real life? Maybe I would even like it.

Any info would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

It's blue on my blue Leaf, I cannot comment on other colors.

It appears to be a completely new console piece....no sticker or anything easily removed. From what I can tell, the console would need to be replaced to change it.

Pretty tacky and out of place, actually. Since I'm leasing, I'll leave it. If I had bought, I'd look into replacing it. But personal preferrence prevails, as always.

Two weeks ago I talked to Patrick at Nissan and he put me on conferance call with my dealer and we deleted the eco design package. Yesterday I called Patrick to ask him when my dashboard would update? He looked at my order and said it was too late to stop it. I told him how dissappointed I was in Nissan with what little info we had about accessories when ordering. I would have never ordered that particular package had I known that the center console would look like Dorothy's shoes in "The Wizard of Oz". Anyway, I was happy to hear that my car was in production but very unhappy to find out I could NOT stop this ad-on especially since it is the very last thing they will do to the car prior to delivery.

I forgot to mention that I don't even have a vin yet. Just "month of April". Maybe I'm not talking to the right person? My dealer said I had to go through Nissan. Any thoughts?

Escalate the call and jump to Patricks Supervisor at the Nissan Call Service Center.
Someone mentioned on another thread to pop an energy drink, hold the phone close to your mouth, speak a bit loud and demand the change.....
That should do the trick.... Good Luck

My dashboard hasn't updated either - but I've a mail from Nissan that was sent to my dealer which says it is deleted.

Speak to a CSR about the dashboard and tell them about this change. Ask them to confirm it ... they haven't been to do it for me yet, but hopefully they will. I asked for an update yesterday ...

ps : The accessories get added after landing at LA. So, until then they can safely change the accessories.

Are you sure no accessories are done in production?

If the ECO console is "done" in the US, then they might have to remove the black console, and have some to spare.

Does the Service Manual show how to remove the "console"?

I've had no luck changing my "Pending" order options either.

Nissan Chat says they will escalate to a supervisor and make the change, but they never do anything.
Each call is brand new. It's like 50 First Dates meets Groundhog Day, only I'm trying to get something done here...

Dealer says to contact Nissan, of course.

Note that this is a Pending order with no known production date, and still can't delete the options we had to order blind in October. Way to go, Nissan.

Yes - these are port installed accessories. Nissan has a different terminaology for factory installed - options (QC in Leaf).
