The left CHAdeMO plug is out of order. It has been out of order for more than a week. I phoned today. I was told that the problem has already been reported but repairs take four weeks to six weeks. Unfortunately, the dealership parks ICE cars around the four Level-Two stations. The salesman have been known to move their new cars to make room if you ask them nicely. I recommend when using the Blink charger, park in the left stall but use the right plug. This allows an opening for the level two charger.
There’s a new blink fast charger @ this location. Worked last night for the dealer but today it is “updating.” fortunately there are 4 Level 2s.
So far (2X), dealer cars are usually parked in the charging stall spaces so need to ask that it be moved before one can start using any of the four EVSE outlets.
Many dealers have limited parking available so unfortunately I don’t think many of them have the space to dedicate even 1 open spot. Most of the time they are happy to move the vehicles. Best bet on dealers for now is to always call ahead.
This dealer said we could not use their charger because we are not driving a Nissan Leaf. Not very nice.
Some dealers will be happy to have your volt @ their Nissan dealer and vice-versa. Some won’t. Also some day’s it just depends who is working there. It would be nice if dealers had a single policy. I can’t tell you the amount of times we have seen dealers say no one day, yes the next and no again later. To me I would think it’s good business to attract a committed customer(buying a 30k+ vehicle) to switch brands with some some inexpensive electricity, but hey what do i know :)
My guess is it will eventually won’t matter as much when there are many more charging stations.
Anyway, if you didn’t talk to the general manager, you may want to give a ring and find out the official scoop. If you do, please let everyone know here! thanks.
