It's almost time to close the Bumblebee chapter - my smart goes back to Mercedes in two weeks. This has been the most fun car I've yet owned. Over the past three years and about 11,000 miles the car's been 100% reliable and has cost me only one set of wiper blades. Max range seems to be unchanged from new, though colder weather seems to pull the range down a bit faster.
This has been my sole car so has done all of the things required by life. While there's plenty of public charging in San Antonio, I've only used it a few times in three years as the 68 miles of EPA range has been enough for trips all over town, as long as they're taken one at a time. One of the highlights was taking friends and their gas cans on post Hurricane Harvey drives to find a station that had gas.
There were plenty of trips to school, to the rifle range, doctor appointments, and home improvement stores. I learned that one can carry a full size table saw in the back as long as the tailgate stays down.
The only shooting concession was breaking the AR-10 and putting it into a case for range trips. I never did take the Kentucky long rifle to the range.
The massive ice storm of 2016...
...was followed by the blizzard of 2017. We will rebuild.
She's been down to 0% charge a dozen or so times now yet still got me to a place to charge even if it was at 15 MPH for the last couple of miles. And even if the charger was ICEd and pottied...because Texas...
She's been a great car and a ton of fun. Happy trails, Bumblebee.
