Re: What is being offered at end of lease?

I did do my test drives today. I drove a Focus EV 1st, then the Leaf and then the Spark. Between the Focus and the Leaf, I preferred the Focus though I found entering and exiting the car to require more stooping. The Focus drove so much better, seemed more powerful and per price point, was a better ...

Re: What is being offered at end of lease?

Well.....I'm heading up to see the car on Monday (if it's still there) but there are others to drive so at least I'll have that.

Re: What is being offered at end of lease?

Thanks Taxman.

One question- does the driver's seat height adjust up and down? A must for someone like me with a short torso.

Re: What is being offered at end of lease?

MDM, Thanks for the response! It's just going to be an around town car.......no more than 25-30 miles would be the longest trip. I'm currently driving a Fiat 500 cabrio and I considered the Fiat 500e (EV) but there's no service available for any of the electrical components where I live. I really lo...

Re: What is being offered at end of lease?

I'm considering a '15 EV from a non-Chevy dealer - it shows on CarFax as an auctioned car.

1- Is this a bad idea to buy an auctioned car especially from a non-Chevy dealer?
2- It has 16K miles and they are asking $8K plus fees - good?
3- Does not have DCFC
4- 1LT model

Thoughts?

Thanks all for the valuable input!!

There is a 2015 EV 2LT with 13K miles but they are way out of line with the price IMHO....$14.6K. I'm in no hurry!

Re: Buying a used 2014 Spark EV 2LT - bad idea??

Nikwax.....not necessarily, EVs are totally new territory for me. I don't want to lay down a stack o' cash and then find the car is worth nothing without new/reconditioned, very expensive batteries. Norton - I personally don't need DCFC as I have a dino burner too. But always thinkin' resale value. ...

Buying a used 2014 Spark EV 2LT - bad idea??

A local Fiat dealer has a 2014 Spark EV 2LT (with 11K miles) @ $10400 plus fees. A bunch of questions especially after trolling this forum which created even more questions: 1. Decent price? 2. Doesn't have a DCFC - problem in the future 3. Battery degradation - a problem for these cars? 4. Has anyo...
