How much are you planning to sell it for?
My 2013 FFE is currently listed on AutoTrader.com. I originally listed the car at $9,300 but I've currently brought the price down to $8,400. The only real prospective buyer so far pulled out because he said he was worried about the high voltage battery packs failing after the 8 year/100,000 mile warranty expired and having to pay $20k to replace the battery packs.
Personally, I think if whoever buys the car and puts 50,000 miles on it in three years could then junk the car and still be ahead. I also think that these battery packs are going to last much, much longer than 8 years. And when they do fail there will be plenty of low cost replacement battery packs around that will probably have a much larger capacity.
