Re: EV tax credit - kill it. Now. With fire if required. It's on its way towards planned obsolescence, anyway. If it dies tomorrow, or a year from now, it still dies.

From the politics side, there is no 'Progressive' position. It's a fallacy.

You're either Liberal or Conservative. End of discussion.

Good Luck!

I mostly agree. But if you listen to the other side you will end up agreeing on a host of things. I find it interesting how my friends on the other side of the political spectrum put so much faith in a government that has a abysmal track record. There is a balance required to this civilization thing. I try not to champion an OCP free market approach because it is every bit as bad as a socialist "Utopia" with an all powerful, benevolent government. It ends up like a tug of war were both sides have everything to gain and everything to lose. Lets come together occasionally as Americans. That is why I preach the individuality of the States. Foster a live and let live attitude because what works in southern California may be completely stupid in northern Nevada. Why force everyone into one culture?

Could a moderator move the thread to the "off-topic" forum. This is posted in the SparkMain owners forum, and this isn't a Spark-specific issue. It has also gotten rather political.

Pretty Please?

But that's where the 'Tax incentives for early adopters' comes from....
'14 Spark EV 2LT w/ DCFC. 91k miles.
'17 Bolt Premier w/ It All! 59k miles.
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try, nope, 2nd try / cost $800. 3rd try fixed it.

It was (is) a political topic. I have no problem with differing points of view on the tax incentive. I would not have voted for it but I love the Spark EV it gave me! Lemonade out of lemons!

what do you guys think a 3 year old sparke would cost if there was never a 7500 incentive. lets assume the car would of still been built with no incentive.
