Also, I checked the carfax. I was looking at two different ones. The vehicle I purchased is from Atlanta, GA. So not as high of a temperature as it is in Arizona. Still a warmer climate, but not as bad. I'm paying $8900 for this car.
SV is a good choice because it has the heat pump and is capable of remote access so you can start climate control remotely to pre-heat or pre-cool (will run 2 hours while plugged in or 15 minutes maximum on battery). Check CarFax to see if the telematics control unit (TCU) has been replaced. If not, it will need to be replaced before remote access and public charger location map updates (on navigation screen) will function. The original cellular modem was 2G which is updated to 3G by TCU replacement. Replacement was free on 2015 and $300 total for parts and labor on earlier cars (at least to original owners) so you may still be able to get it done without cost, if needed. Make sure the navigation system works when you get the car since it will not function correctly if someone removed the proprietary SD card (should be a card in one slot and it is normal for the other slot to be empty). The proprietary card can be replaced through dealer by special order at significant cost so it should be Carvana's responsibility to replace it, if missing. Key fobs are a bit expensive to replace so make sure you get two with the car.
