I ended up going for it because I couldn't find a lower mileage one at that price. In fact, to get it out the door for 18k, they had to sell it to me for 15.8k which was lower than many other local cars with 30-40k miles. After buying I discovered the car has only used 66gallons of gas in it's lifetime, so I effectively have a nearly-new car. I don't think it's had any dealer service in a while and since the inital 3 year warrantee may be up, I wanted to quickly get it into the dealer for some service - this was all I could think of right now - any ideas on other things I should have them check/warrantee?
-Rear view mirror loose
-check battery coolant levels
-check and update software versions for the system
Congrats. Many of the suggestions are the same as a regular car. Many of these you can do yourself.
a. Make sure the emissions system recall and the hatch stut recall were performed.
b. Listen carefully when you accelerate and decelerate. If you hear a popping noise each time, you might need to have your axle nuts torqued, or nuts and washers replaced, or worst case scenario bearing replacement.
c. Check the oil life indicator on the DIC (and look at the dipstick). My first oil change wasn't needed until 22.5k miles, but there's also a 2 year rule
d. Check the condition of all 4 tires.
e. Replace the cabin filter behind the glove compartment (empty the glove compartment and look for videos online on how to access it)
f. Check to see if you need new wiper blades. I found the GM ones to fit better than 3rd party ones - I struggled to get the passenger side Bosch ones on
g. Seriously consider getting a VoltShelf and VoltScreen
h. Go buy an L2 EVSE
