Thanks everybody for your time!

work, and if it's free.... well, you know!

I don't buy. Almost 2.5 yrs / + 41k miles of ownership!
>Got a friend with a pickup? Or put a hitch on the SS. I spent $125 on a Uhaul dolly to bring mine home 800 miles. One weekend road trip.

And it has great acceleration at any speed, imho.

Only thing I've seen is rarely
the climate control drop-down header does not respond to control knob changes. The knobs work, theyjust don't display the changes. A quick reboot of the car and all is well. I think if I count to 3 before twisting climate control knobs at power up it always works correctly.
Tires are my only maintenance item, oh, and washer fluid. I never dik with rotating the tires because that is only a left to right deal. Lots of cars can't have their tires rotated.
I'm currently trying to burn down my current front tires before winter. I have a new set of 195/50-15 tires on .5" wider wheels waiting to install!
This car is FUN
to drive and toss around. It has a Stability Control system that doesn't let the car get too weird.
You won't be sorry tracking down one of these EV Sleepers!!!
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC. +78 K miles.
Mostly free charging! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
