Mileage just dropped drastically within the last 2 months. Shows 10 bars, and dealer said it was fine. Leaving the dealer, I got 30 miles and used 2/3 of the 72 "available". I cannot go 50 miles in this car anymore.
I tried the "Arbitration" that's offered by BBB and the Auto Manufacturers. Beware, it seems that you can only use the Free Arbitration program IF your car is still under the basic warranty of 3 years or 60/000 miles. Mine is now 4 1/2 years old, shows 10 ( 8 white) bars and gets 45 miles to a full 100% charge.
My only option now is to hope that I'm not the only one with the problem and someone starts a Class Action suit about the problem. Or use the small claims court in Florida which allows suits up to $5000, which would probably cover the battery in a couple years if cost keeps dropping.
Buying this POS car was the worst vehicle purchase I've ever made. Paid $38K worth $9K
