Considering buying a Certified pre owned i3. Any one recommends getting the BEV model (only electric)?

Will it make it from LG to SF? How long will it need to charge in SF?

    Have owned i3 for an year now and completely dissatisfied. The car is a lot of fun to drive, however the suicide doors and the extremely fragile internal system has forced us to sell the car. OP wanna buy? I've had it for one year.

      Suicide doors in general are impossible to get out if another vehicle was parked too close to you. My vehicle as estimated by NADA is priced at $14,700. I'd be willing to sell at $15k flat. Lmk if you're interested.

      Thanks for clarifying.

      Can’t you get out of the hatch?

    I almost never used the generator in my i3 and would have been better served by the extra range in the BEV.

    Their value is really low and I would look for one in the low 20’s for cost.

    The 208va charger is worth installing. Being able to quick charge is great.

    Very easy to drive, accelerates exactly how you would want to in a run-about.

    The frunk leaks. You will find leaves and dirt in it.

    The range isn’t that great on them. Fast charging will get them to 80% in under 30 minutes.
