How do you know when production order is final?My understanding is that in the US, you can change your options or dealer until the production order is final without losing your reservation #. I changed my color once (online/a few months back) and still kept the same reservation #. I am also thinking of changing my dealer.
MSRP changes are not my concern. Where I am.. it's completely normal to ask for $15K over MSRP for an EV6 or Telluride. $5K-$10K over for an Ioniq 5.Terms and conditions on the reservation say, "MSRP excludes applicable tax, title, license fees and destination charges. Dealer sets actual price. Prices and specs are subject to change without notice. Destination and handling $1,175." Even if the dealer intended to charge no markup and require no extras, they still couldn't guarantee you a price because Nissan could still change it.
My reservation has been in since early January. I'm guessing it's not "finalized." This is all the reservation site says. Hmm, I see an Edit button on the dealer. Maybe it's time to let them know if they won't sell it to me at MSRP and won't add on junk like the Theft Patrol GPS I've been required to buy on prior deals (which I declined), that I will find a new dealer. Thoughts?Either Nissan will contact you and/or the selected dealer will want you to finalize your order/options etc.
I'm thinking of changing the color but not if it costs my place in line. I am talking to another dealer as Irvine has so far not responded to my request to have no add-ons/markups in writing.Has anyone changed their trim since reservations closed? Think there's a difference between just changing color on same trim at this point vs a totally different trim level?
I just switched my dealer of choice to Nissan of Tustin. They are offering the Ariya at MSRP pricing with no added dealer mark up. They are located in Tustin, CA.I have a reservation for a Platinum+ and am a little unsure about the dealer I chose (poor reviews). Can you change dealers at any time (before production I assume)?
Have checked out Puyallup Nissan yet? There are no ”regional market adjustment fees“ or unwanted add ons at Korum‘s Puyallup Nissan.Interesting.
After calling several dealerships yesterday and getting basically the same answer. We don'y know. I ruminated on this for awhile. Seems to me two things are going on and while they are separate issues the go hand in hand. First issue. Most of the dealers I spoke with do not seem to understand that there is a preorder system, from Nissan. After talking to the dealerships. They all seem to think we have reserved cars from THEIR websites and we are taking them out of their stock, same as the rest of the cars on the lot. What they don't understand is that hat they are just a landing and paperwork spot for the cars. Trying to explain to them was frustrating, until one asked his sales manager while not putting on hold properly. That they maybe treating them the same as fleet cars, which have no mark-up. AHA. now I know how to talk to them.
The second thing I think they are missing in this ordering process is waving the market added cost. Since they all seem to want to add it, yet there is a margin builtin to the price. Why would at least one of them in a city make it clear that THEY will not be adding a market adjusted fee. I wold seem that if they would do that. And effecting let it be known. Many people would change there cars to that dealership. Thereby taking relizing economy of scale the would outweigh the one or two market adjustment fees they may get.
