Hi! Lurker here, just wanted to share that I spoke with a couple general managers and they all got back to me saying that the "Binding" Contract we signed to purchase the Ariya is actually NOT legally binding.

I was told that we are allowed to back out at any time, even if we submitted the agreement.

Thought this would be helpful for anyone who wanted to change their minds like me but was unsure if you were allowed. What a big relief!

The definition of what constitutes a legally binding contract varies by state. In my state (Ohio), no penalty clause for backing out is required, which makes this contract okay. People in other states that require a penalty clause to be legally binding may have trouble using it.

Not good news. If it is not legally binding, then it will not count for the tax credit.....
Oh yeah, I just meant good news for those who wanted to back out of the Ariya and buy another car, but were unsure if they were legally bound.

The Ariya is not coming until 2023 at the earliest now, and I don't trust Nissan anymore. Better use of my time and money just moving on to better options.

But yes, unfortunately, not good news for those wanting a tax credit since there's a good chance many people will not receive it as the agreement was not legally binding.

What are the better options? Thanks.

Waiting for the Platinum+ ... but with the preliminary review of the e4orce not being that awesome, it seems Model Y (need to get my wife to buy it) with the new $7500 credit is looking like a more realistic option.

I'm looking at the Ioniq 5 now. Maybe even wait for the Ioniq 6. In reality, I wanted the Ioniq 5 all along (it's a stunning car), but the markups used to be an obstacle for me which is why I was waiting for the Ariya, but at this point, I'm willing to fork the extra money up.

Well, just pulled the trigger on an Ioniq 5 yesterday, just in time for my Thanksgiving road trip. Was able to negotiate the markup from 7k to 4k, which is something I can stomach in this climate.

Honestly it feels like a big weight off my back after all these shenanigans by Nissan, like finally leaving an abusive relationship and wondering why you never did it before.
