Bah, swapped out my bluetooth adapter for an ancient one I found in the bottom of a drawer and it's working now!
Now for the bad news. 2016 with 28k battery capacity is 14.4kw, ugh. Should I return this one to Carvana and try again?
The real question is this - does the car meet your driving needs? At 5 mi / kwh, you have a estimated maximum range of 72 miles. My 2016 Spark EV with DCFC and 22.5k miles has a current battery capacity of 15.8 kwh although it has been as low as 15.4 kwh. At 15.8 kwh and 5 mi / kwh, I have a estimated maximum range of 79 miles.
Every Friday, my wife and I have to make a 130 mile round trip that requires a DCFC charging stop each way. Because of the current hot weather, we also have to use the AC on our way to our destination. Obviously, without the DCFC chargers, I could not make the trip. Driving in town is not a problem as I have L1 and L2 chargers in my garage. And, in the town where I live, we also have two free L2 EVSEs but no DCFC stations. The closest DCFC station is 10 miles away but it is currently down for repair.
I also have a 2014 Spark EV without DCFC and my current battery capacity is 15.9 kwh with 19.4k miles on the ODO.
