I assume you have all the past recalls completed.
California gives $2500 rebate but recently offered more for low income buyers and added an exclusion for the wealthy. No rebate for used.electrons wrote: Does California kick in anything on a new or used one for you? I think the feds won't on a used one.
Does California offer a used-car rebate if the used electric car came from out-of-state?TomEV wrote:California gives $2500 rebate but recently offered more for low income buyers and added an exclusion for the wealthy. No rebate for used.
Wow, I just went to CarGurus.com and searched for used Leafs near zip code 92010 (Carlsbad CA), and Leafs go for as cheap as $5,500 ! If you can't find a Ford Focus Electric and can tolerate the Leaf's styling, then that's the deal to get. Still has some battery warranty left too.oilerlord wrote:I'm still shopping. By coincidence, I had a fellow car-guy friend of mine that lives in Carlsbad take a FFE out for a test drive (we don't have any within about 1000 miles of where I live). He said it's no Tesla, but a lot of car for $10K. I've made a couple of lowball offers, only a matter of time before one gets accepted.
Thats my fav so far too. Got their app for the road.oilerlord wrote:Go to plugshare.com to find charging stations in your area.
Well it came back from a lease, when I purchased it it had 30,098 miles on it.Way to go! How many miles are on your 2012?
Your choices will really open up in a year or two. Gas prices will probably stay low (maybe), and the new 200-mile Chevy Bolt will be out in about a year (expensive). Also, http://www.greencarreports.com/news/110 ... t-charging and 100 miles sounds pretty good considering we get by on 76 now.Kakkerlak wrote:I have $10,000 set aside to buy a car that will last me between the end of my FFE lease and whenever the Tesla Model 3 starts delivery. Ford would have to do something really impressive to earn my business, like a 200-mile, 0-60-in-4-seconds hatchback built in Michigan.
Thats a better deal than around here, where cargurus.com has 4 used FFE's for sale in the Denver area, all priced about a thousand or two more than that, still not bad though. I'm surprised to see any for sale around here.Kakkerlak wrote:My local Ford dealer just advertised a 2013 FFE with a strikethrough price of $14,999, and an "Internet Special" price of $9,980. They claim it has just over 15K miles, so it's probably not a lease return.
