Hi all. I'm looking to get into my first BEV, and I've found a 2015 Leaf S with only 48,394 km. The shop is asking $14,995 CDN. It looks super clean and from the photos has a full 12 bars. But...when I requested the Carfax report I see it has had two collisions. One must be a small dent in the rear bumper, but the other really caught my eye: $11,490 CDN with the only detail being "undercarriage."
My first thought was to run away, thinking why didn't they just scrap the car? But then I though some (most?) of that cost might have been a new battery. That would help explain the 12 bars I think.
I haven't talked to them yet to ask if they have more info on the damage report. I'm still worried about what could have caused this damage, and what it might mean for the car.
But I'm curious about your opinion. If this is a new battery, could this be a worthwhile purchase? Also, given the damage report, how much should I be able to haggle with price?
Thanks for your help.
