True if he wants to put int he pack and then sell it. That probably wouldn't be a good idea.Phatcat73 wrote:His car's BB value is about $3k. He'd be better off trading for an $8K near 4 bar loser car, under warranty, then get a fresh pack.
Yes, he can push the "it has a new battery, so it's worth much more than the BB," but that could be a tough sell..
But, if he's just looking to refresh the car, $6k for an old Leaf with FULL RANGE might be much better than $8k for a newer car that's still degraded..
True, you were specifically looking at a car that is about to get a free (warranty replaced) battery, but I'd be worried about that.
Has the car been exempted? Has it had the firmware update that might pop it back to a 3 bar loser for a bit? Something else?
I'd be wary of a car that can get a free battery, but hasn't yet...
But that's me, I'm not a gambling man by nature..
