I don't have a problem with warning a nieve prospective buyer that it's risky to buy a cheap EV, due to concerns about the battery health. Kudos to that.
But, in this case, the OP clearly stated in the original post:
Obviously a $5000 leaf is going to have a not so good battery pack don’t care just need to get 20 or 30 miles
There's nothing ambiguous about that - he understands the risks and he seems willing to gamble a bit that even an old pack will give him "20 or 30" miles of range.
My point is that it's someone's prerogative to take that risk if they want, if they understand the risks, without being berated for doing so.
There are many Tesla owner's who think all LEAF owner's bought a lemon, due to the car's limited range. If you asked them if you should consider a LEAF with a 99% SOH pack, they'd likely tell you that you might as well buy a $1 car as spend $9-10k on a LEAF. It's all relative...
