I plan to provide any official guidance I get from GM here so that if others need it they can skip this excruciating process.
Thank you for keeping us posted on this!

Re: Edmunds/Carmax offered me $10,100 for 2015 Spark--Should I Sell?

Interesting to hear the spark could be worth that much (thinking of a Bolt lately...)

May I ask how Edmund / Carmax would know to offer you money for your car?
Did you contact them initially?

Thanks

Re: Battery Degradation vs Battery Limited Warranty

So here I am getting close to the end of my Battery Warranty (July 13th) on my Spark 2014. It is said to have a 21kWh battery, but an unknown Usable capacity value. I started with 16.1 kWh usable at 52,000 miles in Jan 2017, and after a steady decline over the years, I am now at 12.8 kWh at 76,000 m...

Of course if your battery warranty is about to expire around 13kWh, I wo...

Re: 2016 vs 2014

That will reduce the rounding errors.

Also if possible take numbers when there is no conditioning value as this increases the magnitude of rounding errors by 50%
