High Mileage 2017

Tue Jan 07, 2020 9:00 am

I am wondering if there are any specific issues I should be concerned with when looking at a 2017 with about 50k miles on it. It was purchased in late 2016, so it was actually driven for 3 full years at about 17k miles/year.

It is fully loaded (Tech, Parking, HK audio, moonroof) and is currently being offered at about $20k, though it has been on the lot a few weeks and I think I can talk them down.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you want more range than the earlier cars, make sure this one does not have the smaller 60ah battery. Some 2017s did.

I bought my 2014 BEV with almost 60k miles on it and haven't regretted it a bit in the 1.2 years I've owned it. If it's a REX, not sure if there will be more issues as the miles pile up.
