those who are not taking delivery regardless of the reason, are you just telling your dealer no thanks?
mine called and said the car will be here next week. I want to see if they can change it into a lease and work in the 7500$. has anyone tried that?
To answer your question, I backed out on mine after much study of the law and the so-called binding agreement Nissan had me sign. First off, if Nissan doesn’t sign it, it cannot be truly binding. And the fact that i was able to get my deposit back after refusing the car proves that out. Good luck if you take yours and try to get the tax incentive. I am pulling for you.
They called before Christmas and indicated I should have it before the end of the year. Had that happened, the tax credit was still in effect and I would’ve taken it. It came in on the 3rd of January and it is all about the day you take possession. I had to play it safe since the credit was important to me.
My thinking was that the $7500 made it a more reasonable price and competitive with some other EVs In the 40s. Without the incentive, it is pretty much what a Cadillac Lyriq is after the rebate. Yeah, I know that Lyriq doesn‘t qualify right now, but I am fairly certain GM will get that straightened out when the the IRS changes come in March.
I had moved it to another dealer just in case I wanted out. That was mostly because I didn’t want the original dealer to have the car if I backed out. They were upcharging me up to 5 grand, so that was the real reason I changed. I don’t mind the newer dealer having it to sell and they do have it on their web site now.
I drove the car before I told them I was not accepting delivery. Just had to out of curiosity. Love the appearance of the car inside and out, mostly inside. It was quiet and comfortable and the ProPilot 2.0 worked great. I’m not a fan of a few things I found, but won’t prejudice your opinion of your cars with my complaints. They were very minor and I probably would not have noticed them for long. It is a nice vehicle and those that go through with the deal will enjoy it.
If they ever make it in Smyrna, I’ll probably grab one. Hope you love yours…
