Re: 14 months of ownership starting to regret Owning a sparkev

Two L2 charging spots located inside gated business facility, no other EVs on site... Car also has hanger tag with cell number listed, plus Security guards know how to reach me in extremely rare instance that another EV comes to town... No calls in 3+ years . And I'm the guy that does practice prope...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

I haven't checked our battery capacity yet, but we're still seeing 80-85 miles of range avg on GOM, on our 2015 Spark EV, and we're at 25k miles today.

Always plugged in to Level 1 at home, Level 2 at office for ~8 hrs/day, and 14 DCFC full charges since we bought the car.

Re: 14 months of ownership starting to regret Owning a sparkev

Still have our 2015 Spark EV, now with 25k miles & still getting minimum 85 miles of range...

Stays plugged in all the time when parked, typically Level 1 home & daily 8-9 hours on Level 2 at office. Used DCFC 14x since car purchased in 2016.

Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

I'm just getting started with checking battery capacity after 3+ years & it's merely curiosity for me.

I feel pretty confident that GM Engineers designed the packs to handle 100% charge at each 'fill-up' - Time will tell!

Re: GOM (estimated mileage) and battery degradation

Last night, I charged our 2015 Spark EV 2 LT at an EVGO station, and charged to 100%, with GOM showing 77 miles of range (50-degree temps last night). Car has been in our hands since late 2016, when we purchased it as a 178 mile demo unit. This is only the ninth time using L3/DC charging since we've...

Car now has 23k miles & still on good tread / condition rear factory installed tires. Bought the car with 178 miles on it - Bryan ...

Re: Electrify America Charging Station Problems

Stopped by the EA charge station here in Raleigh, NC this morning - found a number of the terminals to be down due to card reader issues, 3 would not connect to our 2015 Spark. Tried terminal 1, and it managed to connect & provided full charge. Spoke with EA Customer Service to let them know of inop...

Re: Porsche mission e depreciation

The Porsche 'likely' won't be a disposable car like the Tesla. Try buying new parts from Tesla - it ain't happening. Salvage prices on Tesla S/X are high due to lack of spare parts. And the 800-lb Gorilla in the room is the question: "What will it cost to service a Tesla that is out of warranty? And...
