My biggest concern obviously is the battery health. What is the best test for battery health? .
If you don't have an OBD2 to BT dongle and the app, fortunately the Spark EV can give you direct info on the display about the current battery capacity.
It would involve an extended test drive starting with a 100% SOC and driving it down to < 50% SOC, lower than that would even be better. You then do the math from the X kWh used / X SOC %.
There was a post here about some owner recently getting a warranty replacement pack from Chevy!
You'd be covered!
Also, it wouldn't be a 'paper weight', just an EV with less and less range as time went on.
Would you toss it if it ever became a 50 mile range EV?
How can the Smart EV be orphaned? Isn't there a law covering cars less than 10 years old? Or is that a myth?
You won't be sorry!
Have both hands on the wheel when you punch it!!

GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
3 step Trouble Tree, 1st try, nope, 2nd try / cost $800. 3rd try fixed it.
