Would you have any idea what a reasonable price range would be? Dealer doesn't seem to want to budge off $10,000, but maybe I have some ammo with the weak battery. It was listed for $8,900 at another dealer a year ago with 10,000 less miles lol.
Suppose I bought it with 8 bars, could I drive it until I got close to the 5 year warranty time period? Maybe it would be better to be right on the warranty claim? Do they usually mention things like this when you take the car in for service?
Prices vary by availability in an area, but a degraded "Base" 2013 SV shouldn't, IMO, be worth more than $8500. The pack you'd get for free would be much better than the one in the car (slower degrading unless the climate is really hot) so there isn't much need to wait, but if you had enough range you could do that. Just DON'T
go past that warranty limit!
2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium Package and no QC, and 2009 Vectrix VX-1 with 18 Leaf cells.
The most offensive, tasteless phrase in use here is "Pulled the trigger." I no longer respond to posts that use it.
