Hey all, I haven't posted here in almost five years but thought I'd provide a little update. I passed 5 years of FFE ownership back in May (no more payments!) and am now over 70k miles. This pic is from a while back.
I'm still really happy with the car. I haven't noticed any dropoff in battery capacity and haven't had any major problems, although I did run into the dead 12V battery a few times. In fact, I wrote up a blog post
about what I learned on that, not sure if this is now common knowledge, if not it might be helpful for anyone with 12V problems. The car been my daily commuter this entire time and I've probably gone through about 3,000 charge cycles at this point. Unfortunately my HOV lane decal is going to expire at the end of this year and can't be renewed, so I need to buy a new EV to get a new sticker.
But I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of this car, and plan to give it to my 16-year old so it stays in the family.
