Sure, insult the forum and it's members.

How do you expect to get help with a statement like that.
I'm sure the OP meant that there isn't very much Spark EV activity, not because the forum members are slow, but GM neglected most of the US when they released the Spark EV, thus the snail's pace forum traffic on Spark. The real question is why the rush, and why not blue? And why not get a Bolt instead?

If you're looking for a used Spark, I doubt you'd also cross shop a new Bolt. There's probably a $20k difference in the price. OP is probably trying to stick to a budget. With that said, a good used gen1 Volt could be had for the price of used Spark and you get much more car. The Spark is tiny in comparison to the Volt.

Yes, we test drove a spark ICEer because my wife was intruigued by the price as a vehicle for our daughter. at $13K it seemed like a bargain, butwe got inside, it was surprisingly roomy for how tiny it looks from the outside, but a quick look behind the rear seats and we were concerned what would happen if rear ended. We ended up with a Subaru Crosstrek for about $21k. AWD for Boston winters, more space, and it looks much nicer than a Spark. Alas, she no longer needs the AWD as she is moving to Atlanta. Good luck as every place this Subaru has been has brought a ton of snow.

If I had a spark, I'd probably try hard to get vanity plate that rear SUVBAIT.

Atlanta gets snow. About once a year. And the city shuts down for three days.
Bold prediction: Atlanta will get more than one snowfall this year and tons of it at a time.

Yes....I figured a tiny bit of deductive reasoning would tell people this lol

Not so much a rush as I have been looking for weeks...as is Lewey...No luck on a good priced one.
the powder blue is such a horrible color(sorry) that I simply cant deal with it haha. the car is not the best looking in the world and they went and did that to it haha.


Bolt is not in my price point at this time although someday I will own one. :)

****DING DING DING DING DING *** Winnnarr!! haha

I do want a Bolt...just not right now. We have a 14 Volt right now and LOVE it!! But we wanted to give the spark a shot due to the DCFC ability and we have free level 3 charging 1/8th a mile away from home. So the 80% in 20 mins is very enticing. It will be purely a commuter car and with the mileage more than capable of serving our needs. I was gonna get another Volt but its on the edge of daily use without hitting gas use. So we figured give a Spark a shot.

I had looked several months ago at the light blue one at Mayse Chevrolet outside Springfield, MO (then Norton wouldn't have to feel lonely with one of the only Spark EVs in the midwest). Blue wasn't my color either but allowances could be made. Unfortunately, even though they took all the pictures, like every other legacy dealer, they can't be bothered to open the charge port and show whether the vehicle has DCFC capability and they definitely won't list it in the description/specs.

Disappointing...

How about importing one from California? There are a bunch on our local Craigslist with asking prices under $10k.
