Yet another pesky scenario: I've located another dealer that has a 2014 SV originally titled in Georgia with only 12,000 miles, asking $10,700. For the same price, yet another dealer has a 2014 SV that appears to have always been here in Washington, but it has 42,000 miles since titling in June 2014. Any WAG about which of these would be a better bet? My main worry about the GA car would be that the owner compulsively topped up the battery after each short drive so it sat in the heat at 100% most of the time.
The GA car is conveniently located within a modest bike ride including a ferry crossing, so heading over there on two wheels to do an extended test drive and battery performance check would mean that I would not have to return later with my wife to pick up the car. It's one of the few dealers around that I would actually enjoy riding my bike to, although the ferry ride does suck up a lot of time.
