When filing taxes you complete a form 8936. That form requires you enter Year, Make, Model , VIN # and purchase date. As long as that VIN has never been associated with a previous tax credit it should not be an issue,

They and other select dealers have been selling these Manufacture owned, never previously titled cars cars for over a year that I know of.

These cars are purchased by the dealer from closed auctions only open only to qualified NISSAN dealers.

BTW, I’ve claimed the $7,500 tax credit 4 times now.

You mean the VPS for Reverse and Forward? Technically, those can be disabled without dealer help
Someone else here checked it and it didn't work for them, either. I'm thinking early and late revision software on the recirculate issue - with the later version being the bad one. There was a thread here a while back about someone not being able to turn off the weird sonar-like reverse VSP. We don't care enough about it to try.
I can confirm that Forward VSP can be disabled with LeafSpy Pro on a late model 2020 SL+. Initially I thought it wasn’t capable but realized I had the lite version of LeafSpy loaded by mistake. Once I loaded the Pro version the VSP modification selection was active.

I’ll check for the recirculate issue later today and report back.
I verified that on my late model 2020 SL+ I cannot engage recalculate if the defroster is selected. Recirculate deselects itself and will not be selected again.

And this is also true for Floor + Defrost?

Do these only work on the 2020 models, but not the 2019 or 2018 Gen 2 models? Re-circulate works with defrost + floor I believe. :D

It's been a while now, and I'll have to play with the 2020 again when I get it out. That temp display in the mode icon doesn't look at all familiar to me - it isn't there in the 2018 and I don't recall seeing it in the 2020. What I'm not sure of now is if it's partial (aka "Auto") recirculate only that was unavailable in Floor + Defrost. I think that was the case, and I didn't see you try that in the video. That's the mode here you hold in the Recirculate button while Recirculate is on, until it flashes and then gives you a mix of fresh and recirculated air.

Darn, I did forget that! Rather than make another video (I can tomorrow and just replace the current video), I just went out and did a quick test. It appears that holding in the button to make it flash and switch to partial mode still works with any mode that can do recirculate, including Floor + Defrost. :D

If that's the case, happily, then our 2020 has a glitch. My 2018 lost it too for a while, now that I think about it, but it came back on its own.

Update

I filed my taxes electronically mid February this year on the first day the IRS was accepting returns. It took 10 weeks for return to be processed, and a refund issued. As I stated this was the 4th time I filed for a $7,500 credit. So far Uncle Sam contributed $30,000 towards new Nissan Leafs for me.

You would basically just want to skip the tax withholding for the year to pocket the extra cash and hope you rack up enough for the $7500 to eat into it for tax time next year.

Correct, you can increase your liability by doing things like not adding to your 401k that year but changing withholding will have no effect on your liability. I'm no tax expert but is there anything that can be easily be done to temporarily increase liability for a year to take full advantage of the credit?
