Charging at Nissan dealers

With the upcoming availability of the CHAdeMO adapter, I'm wondering about people's experiences charging at Nissan dealers. It seems that these are most available ( on the East Coast) at dealerships. I've seen advice about calling ahead, but any other thoughts or experiences?

I think it's more that the searching function isn't all that great. Also knowing that there is something there helps.

My Nissan Leaf Forum View topic - Nissan To Install 500 More Quick Charge Stations was one of my semi-recent experiences w/my Leaf along w/a that of someone else.

On Saturday, I was at the same dealer to have them apply TSB NTB13-069 (My Nissan Leaf Forum View topic - EV System Warning Light) as I hit this problem on Friday. I didn't need juice but apparently, another person who wanted to use the the CHAdeMO DC FC said it was showing a temperature error. Oh well. Their L2s in one spot were all in use. I didn't check the other.

Given my experiences w/my Leaf and similar mixed and not-good experiences from others w/Leafs, I wouldn't expect Nissan dealers w/busy DC FCs to be that welcoming of non-Leafs charging for free due to the charge time, battery capacity (== more $ out of their pocket) and other Leafs possibly waiting.

I think they should look into per kwh billing for the DC FCs, at least for non-Nissans, if not all users.

It also depends where the charger is put. If it's like most dealers, it's probably going to be at a place where they have to move other cars to get to (because of wiring considerations).

My local Chevy dealer doesn't have a problem with me using their 30A J1772 Volt charger. In fact, they welcome it because it gets no use from the 2 or so Volts they've sold in 4 years. :)
