LEAF update header

When you get your email from Nissan, this is what it will say

Ernie, the excitement of driving a part of automotive history is almost here! Your Nissan LEAF™ is scheduled to arrive at your local dealer within the next 7 days. Once you take delivery of the vehicle, your initial $99 reservation fee will be refunded. If you have any further questions about the delivery process, just contact your Nissan Dealer.

Mossy Nissan Poway
14100 Poway Rd
Poway, CA 92064
(858) 668-3600

Thanks again for your support of the Nissan LEAF.


Except your email will have your Preferred Dealer indicated. And it probably won’t be addressed to Ernie.

We received the above notification this morning. As “they” say… timing is everything. Our estimated delivery date is “Week of March  29” on the LEAF website, so this “expected delivery” notification actually moved the date up from that indicated on the LEAF website. I will be out of town the week of the 29th. Should the LEAF actually arrive next week, we just might have an opportunity to pick it up prior to the estimated delivery date. If not, it will undoubtedly be patiently awaiting our return to claim ownership.

But… we have accomplished the first of our two tasks, as we sold our 2002 Sentra yesterday. It’s always nicer to have the extra cash rather than the extra car. Now on to the much more difficult task of clearing out the garage.


  1. Congratulations, Ernie! Since I live nearby, maybe you’ll let me come over and look at your Blink Charging Station (and the Leaf, of course), after you get all settled down.

    BTW: SDG&E called me today to confirm that I want the 2nd meter.

    1. Neil – things are starting to move along for you… congratulations! I do remember our deal – whoever got their car first would let the other check it out. Absolutely! Still unsure of when that might be, but you know where to go to find out. 🙂

  2. Ernie,

    Congratulations. Can’t wait to hear you got your car.

    Raining hard in the Bay Area, so I’m cleaning out the garage.
