Re: To trade in Spark or not?

SparkevBlogspot, I have a contracted lease to pay and with my security clearance to maintain it doesn't make sense to be breaking contracts and/or damage my credit. The Fusion and the Spark IMO are "super" hybrids with their large battery packs and they don't take the abuse of multiple-rapid daily c...

Re: To trade in Spark or not?

SparkevBlogspot, Essentially I converted my car loan into a 3 year closed lease by keeping the payments the same. In a few years there will be different cars to purchase: new technology EV, Phev, Hybrid, etc. I get to buy at a discount or walk away from the Fusion Energi. The Fusion Energi has 3 yea...

Re: To trade in Spark or not?

I'm happy with my new car the Fusion Energi . Averaging 51 MPG gas and electric combined. Love the car and it's luxurious appointments. The SPARK was a fun car but impractical for my needs. When the lease is up on the Fusion in 3 years we'll see what is available, until then enjoying the ride and co...

Re: To trade in Spark or not?

ImTedBell looked into it and you are right about me not qualifying for the Spark EV $2500 rebate. Thanks for the "heads up" You don't have to wait 7.5 years. The rebate had a stipulation of minimum ownership length. As always, there is the policy and what they actually do in practice. Rebate recipie...

Re: Public Charging Problems

Have been charging at Chevy dealer until Friday! they got a new shipment of VOLTs and unplugged my car after 20 minutes! Makes sense, it's theirs. It's OK for now I'm able to charge at work @120volt so it's not too bad. Wishing we had EVSE stations at work, and it would be great if it were possible....
