Everyone makes their chioces, dealers and buyers. But after telling the dealer (different one) that North Bay was offering 5% off, I offered to split the difference, 2.5% off to keep the business local. The offer was not accepted. Does not seem like good business to me. I am not trying to nickel and dime, and MSRP is great for a car in such high demand. But personally speaking, it would be "bad business" for me to pay an extra ~$1700.

Why would you go with anyone except North Bay Nissan and get 5%
The Bay Area is a big place, and North Bay Nissan is so far north it barely qualifies as Bay Area. I'm so far south that it would be a 105 mile trip each way for me. Sorry, I want a dealer I can have a continuing relationship with.

There's another point, too, perhaps related. The last two years have been really rough for auto dealers (not that it's been easy for a lot of the rest of us). I think they deserve to be able to make a reasonable profit on the LEAF. My own conclusion is that Nissan's MSRP is reasonable once tax credits and possible rebates have been allowed for. I wouldn't want my dealer to be a price gouger, but I don't begrudge them MSRP, especially considering the extra equipment and training they will need for the LEAF. Who knows, if they make a decent profit now, that might increase their chances of being around five or ten years from now.

I'm not rich, but I'm on a guaranteed retirement income so I'm a lot better off than many. A dealer I respect who sells at MSRP is good enough for me.

I highly recommend this amazing ted talk to anyone thinking that driving 80 miles is not worth saving $800 (for the ones getting 1k bellow MSRP), or $1,800 for the ones who will go with MSRP).
And your local dealer will be happy to do the maintenance on your car, no matter where you buy it.

edit : it's a fairly long one, so if you're in a rush, jump to 15:15 (but I highly recommend the whole thing ;) )

State : Oregon
Metro Area / City : Portland

Trim : SV
Options : none

Total MSRP : 34,540 (MSRP + 820 destination charge)

Price Accepted : 34,540

Dealer : Rustom Nissan of Portland

Date/Time of Order : 9/3/10

Delivery Date : TBD

I didn't even consider trying to negotiate less than MSRP until I got here and saw lots of folks in CA getting discounts... I was just happy to find a dealer who wasn't charging a markup.

I saw a couple orders in Washington in this thread, but not a single one in Oregon. I can't be the first (in fact the dealer told me he had 3 already). Where are you, PDXers?

My order date isn't until October, but today I stopped by Tustin Nissan to speak with Dorie, the Leaf Specialist there. Dorie is very mellow, a pleasure to do business with. I am changing my order back to Tustin Nissan, as I have been a customer there for three years and always received excellent service.

MSRP including dest and handling = $36,055 - $1,000 discount = $35,055 + tax and license. Fontana Nissan. I live in Orange County, CA. Had Costa Mesa Nissan as a preferred dealer initially and Fontana listed as having permission to call. Fontana Nissan called, Costa Mesa did not, so I figured the more proactive dealership could get my business.

$35,055 transaction price
this price includes:

* Nissan LEAF™ SL trim
* cayenne red
* 1 option (quick charge port)
* 5 accessories (flor mats and a few other I don't remember)
