Hello, I am considering buying a used Chevy Spark from a Chevy dealership. From what I can tell, the person lived in CA for a few years, then moved to Las Vegas and turned in their lease here.

On the carfax, I noticed a few visits to various Chevy dealerships that were close together (Aug to Dec 2015). I am concerned that this might be one of the few sparks that had/have the brake issue (regen brakes going out leaving only hydraulic). Is there any way to tell which sparks have this issue?

Also, its funny to see an oil change on there. :lol:

Oil change would mean that this is gas Spark, not SparkEV.

It's definitely a spark ev. I'm assuming the dealership either made a mistake or punched it in automatically from habit.

Have you laid eyes upon it's charge port? Does it have DCFC? Do you know how to tell if a car salesman is lying? Did you drive it? !!!
