I've had my Spark since July 2013 before fast charging was even available. Still have it and it is still our main car. I happened to run across this article and it captures what I love about my car. I keep thinking I should get an EV with more range for longer trips, but Sparkie is so fun to drive and so easy to park at Trader Joe's I just can't replace it. Eight and a half years in and I still love this car.
