Re: Is this a common? Looking at buying a used Spark EV

Re: new member

So you are in Quebec or on Ontario? Its actually best to use a broker because you need an ITN number (I think that's what its called) and I believe you are responsible for getting the title in your name ahead of time. Someone wanted to buy my car from Canada and lost interest when the ITN number thi...

Re: I pulled the trigger! New to us chevy spark

Battery range can vary depending on how it was driven in history. The only true way to know what the range potential is to run the TorquePro app to see what the actual battery capacity is. If your capacity is 15-16kwh, that's what I'd call good normal healthy average. 16-17 is above average and 12 t...

Re: From 64 mile range to 14 mile range after parked 1 hour! MASSIVE Capacity loss!

The 12Volt battery (original to our 2014 Spark EV) seemed to be the issue. It never went above 12.4 on holding a charge and this new replacement seems to be able to hold 13 to 13.2 in comparison after being charged up. No more issues and everything has been fine. The car has been recharged 3x since ...
