Don't post much but I check in here now and then. We have a 2014 51,000 Gigiworld we purchased here in Phoenix 02/17 with 14,000 miles on it for $20,000. We got it so wife could use for commuting to work and alleviate some rush hour traffic stress. Unfortunately replaced that stress with range anxiety, especially now with range showing in the low 50's miles. She tried to keep the speed to around 65 in the commute lane but was frequently tail gated as the commute lane seems to be the fast lane for many. She tried to use the air conditioning as little as possible even in the PHX heat. We do love most everything about it except for only getting about 20,000 miles out of the tires, high cost to replace the 12 V battery when it went out without warning, and the excessive battery degradation. Also a little worried about the slight possibility of the cooling system failure I read about in other post on this sight. I don't want to waste with BMW and their battery test again that will miraculously show the battery is in their acceptable level again....
So I did a little price checking the last couple of days and got some offers. I am not looking to sell to an individual and deal with people at this time. Here are the offers we received:
Carvana offer is best at 10,120. Will most likely go with this one.
Vroom offered 8506
Chapman BMW offered 5500 to 8400.
Kia dealer offered 8100 to 9100.
Kelly Blue Book Instant cash offer 7338, then a bunch of dealers start contacting you wanting to buy at this lowball offer...ugggg. I told them all I had a 10,000 offer and they all dropped out. Interesting thing is their mid-range trade in value is 10, 041 almost same as Carvana offer.
Just thought I would post this for anyone else wondering about ditching their I3. Please feel free to post your thoughts on above.
