Highway Test, 30 MPC

I started an earlier thread asking if I should return my car, as it had a few mechanical issues. I read here of others doing a real-world highway test, and I did it this evening.

- No HVAC
- Headlights On
- Light acceleration
- Remote started car, plugged in
- 45 Degrees out

I got about 30 miles out of it from fully charged. I think that alone has convinced me to return it. Though I will say that I really don't want to, such a fun car and hits all of the marks for me.

Well, it's been short but a blast to drive, take care folks!

* Note: I put in a 50A/240v outlet in the house and have a 240v/40a charger, so it had plenty of power to remote start and pre-heat.

Oh my dog! Only 30 miles? Yeah, something is wrong with that battery. Return it. Defective battery.

Wow only way 30 mi is reasonable is if you have the heat cranked and are driving 80+ MPH.

Ya, i got rid of the car. I am looking at another with 27k instead. I really was impressed with the look, styling, driving, and power of the car. Its a fun one for sure. Hopefully, this one will be better.
