13k is high for that car. Mine was a 13 with 10k from the dealer as a CPO and it was less than that with tax included. But Im in NY and know what you mean about the limited supply. Also, I got mine a year ago and in that time electric cars have really exploded in popularity (outside of Cali) with the model 3s and Bolts becoming mainstream. Used electric prices are going up. Personally I wouldnt touch a used out of warranty ffe for over 8 grand, low mileage or not. But your warranty might make it worth it. Have you checked the facebook page? I think you will find more people posting about minor problems that require a trip to the dealership to fix, usually covered under warranty. but if out of warranty would be expensive. Sorry if I sound cynical, but after what I went through with ford I dont trust warranties and have a much greater understanding of just how different and complex these cars are from their ICE counterparts. Your carmax warranty might not have this understanding.

13K for that car is WAY too high. My brand new one was just a bit more than that (after Federal tax incentive). I'd take it right back.

After all was said and done, tax credits, etc., I only paid somewhere about 16-17k for my '14 back in late '14. I'm on Ohio FYI.

After tax, license, doc, fed tax credit, state cash rebate, and PGE rebate I got my 2018 with the extra optional white paint for $18,700.

Unfortunately in NC, there are no State or Utilities incentives.

My ordered from the factory 2015 was $15,389.99 after taxes, tags, stupid dealer processing fee, Ford rebates and Fed Tax incentive. I'm in VA, so no state incentives. $13k for a 6 year old FFE is WAYYYY too much.

It doesn't matter what incentives you have in NC when buying a used FFE from another state. The price you pay should be discounted by whatever incentives the previous owner had when they bought the car. For $13k I would expect to get a 2016 in great condition with low miles and all the recalls and software updates performed.
