- If you want to talk yourself out of a sunroof, it does add weight, & for acceleration, braking & handling it's in nearly the worst, highest place. The only worse place is behind the axle at the wing, although that could help braking weight transfer. 3 cars ago I had a sunroof & my last car was a convertible, but I don't really miss it. EV is so quiet you hear everything else even with the windows up. I love that I can now listen clearly to any R8 or Lambo driving by...."We take the manufacturers Powertrain Warranty and extend it for as long as you own your vehicle. It's good for an unlimited time and unlimited miles! Just do the factory scheduled maintenance."...
...Not liking the orange accents on the wheel covers though and the price is past $10,000 though it does have a sunroof
Sorry (again!). When I wrote here*: Run or Walk away from a used 2013 Fiat 500e...orHum, will have to see if different wheels Options based on package ordered...
With a $9k 500e as a "play toy", you could just fire up your "non-toy" car for a 200-mile roundtrip.I would prefer not to spend over $10k on a car that will be a play toy for me as it won’t be a DD and I am now retired... Just had not considered doing an EV as a play toy car.
Private seller will likely be a third hand car from someone who bought it from a dealer with a buyer's license and marked up the price. So I wouldn't expect to save much from a private seller.Indeed, right toy for right job
Seems auto traders that have ‘buyers’ licenses can lock in these off lease 500e’s then resale them at mark up. Nothing wrong with that mind you, would just be nice to be able to purchase from a private owner at a discount maybe.
That's significant overthink. Anything that's within range isn't worth bothering about. A specific destination that is likely out of range can be solved with a short Plugshare search of that destination.So is there a 'best' way so far as app(s) to use for charging stations plus a way to overlay that with a radius circle in miles from one's home? I found mapdevelopers.com tool though that does not combine radius info with charging station information. Would be nice to be able to grid a, say 60 to 70 mile circle from either home or where ever one might be at any point in time to gauge what distance one can travel. As well as map out charging locations (free ones would be a bonus). Of course one has to factor in charging time to see what is worth doing if traveling from home even if just for a day.
No worries. I guarantee you that each and every one of us had to learn everything we are sharing with you.No, more like the Moon lol. Indeed, the cable is attached to the charger. My Pea mind was focused on that darn cable that comes with the car and did not stop to think a moment it is not used at a charging station. Dam, I can never have a 500e member card patch if I get the car now that I have asked that question. Hum, maybe I can chance my name...
Price seems to be a little high. I’m selling my 2016 e for $6900. 49,000 miles, power sunroof, clean. Priced to sell.Saw a used 2013 base 500e today with under 40k miles on it and only two owner. Will take it to dealer Friday to have it inspected. Don’t know if the service department can tell me what life is in the batteries presently. I would think both age and usage makes them degrade over time. Maybe a car not having a lot of miles on it is worst then a car with a lot of miles on it.
Don’t know, this purchase might be a roll of the dice even if inspection comes back ok. Will cost $6,600 so hoping that is not too high a price, body is in pretty good shape and so is the inside.
Someone wish me luck or tell me not to buy it please lol.
New post, tried to do one prior though maybe it got lost or I don’t know where it was posted.
