Thank you for your responses everyone.
Unfortunately, someone got to it before me.
It was an interesting car because Google was the owner.
It was not too far to make a trip there to take a look before buying it.
Anyway, I found a 2012 SE premium under 20k miles. The dealer willing to sell it to me for $6k.
However, it was 2k miles away
. So I paid around $800 to ship it here. Plus dealer doc fee, I paid around $7000 total which is a bit more than I wanted to spend.
I am a little upset though because I don’t know what happened to my second key.
The sales man said he put one of the sets keys in the glove compartment before handed over the car to the driver.
On the shipping paper that the sales man has even stated a note with 2 sets keys.
What weird is that the note for the key is not on the shipping paper that the driver gave me. The driver kept telling me there was only one key set.
Also the sales man told me there were two remote key fobs (the remote charger one). I thought the car only came with one. So I also found it weird.
Anyway I ended up with one key and one remote key fob. It would cost me $250 to get a second key
The car is in excellent condition. They said there is no scratches or dent, but found a small dent on the hatchback door, and some scratches. It is not a big deal.
I am getting about 70-75 miles range. So I think the battery is still good.
The car had 3 owners already, they didn’t drive much.
The nice thing about this car is that it was sold around end of Sept 2013. So I still have about 5 month warranty for power train. And more than 5 yrs for the battery.
I hope the car does not have problem with the charger or compressor for 4-5 years, then I am happy.
Otherwise, the wife will get mad that we sold one of our ICE cars to buy this.
When I turn on the AC, it seems to run louder than my ICE car AC even on low. The sound is more like a fridge compressor running. Both of my ICE car are pretty quiet when the AC is running on low.
I am wondering if this is normal for the I-miev.
