Hello all, been lurking on these forums trying to get smarter on the i3s. I had a Fiat 500e for a few years and enjoyed the zippyness of it. The i3 looks awesome and thinking a used one will suite me well. I only put about 4000 miles on the car per year but a big problem on 500e was the lack of range. I make the drive from OC to LA about once a week and need to be able to go there and get back without range anxiety. Its about 120 miles round trip and I don't mind filling up once if needed.
That being said, I found a couple that work well and qualify for the HOV sticker. One is a 2016 white i3 that is CPO at a BMW dealership and the other is a 2014 carmax car.
Appreciate any insight or recommendations you can provide.
Are the 2014 model years bad? Do the battery warranty transfer for even a 3rd owner? Do i3's have a lot of warranty issues?
I am trying to decide between a 2014 and 2016 i3 REX and having a tough time. Both cars are available today and hoping to make a decision quickly.
Pros of 2014: Bigger nav screen, preferred color, $2K cheaper
Pros of 2016: Newer, CPO, warranty good till June 2021 with the 1 addition from CPO
How would you decide between the two?
