Unless you really want a project car, wait, spend more money and get a car with a better battery.
I almost went for a 9 bar $4,500 car, so glad I didn't. I waited, searched and found a 12 bar car that's kept all 12 bars for over a year now and had it shipped to me from up north for $7,200.
I am much happier with 12 bars and spending $2,700 more.
There's no way I could have swapped in a 12 bar battery even doing it my self for less than that difference.
Yea don't mind a project car and he is down to 3k for the car so that is really the low end as I see cars at auction damaged with salvage title going for this area just for parts. For me to spend 7k+ on a 12 or 13 another 12k and I have a brand new car with the 150m range 3 years of connect many extras long warranty.

My though was new drivers first car so used EV good way to go just going to school and back.

So if I cannot get what I would term as a great deal on a used I am not seeing the advantage.
