2 Fridays ago my Silver ELR was totaled. No one hurt.. Got same car sitting in my driveway with 1k more miles on( Built 250 cars before my old one) it shipped from an Acura dealer in FT Worth...battery dead after they took it to a Cadillac dealer to get it charged . Now it gets interesting. It has a life time mpg of 32. Battery was dead charged it with my level 2 to 22mi. Cruised my loop and improved the charge currently at 38 and climbing even with my new set of S Drive tires (love 'em better ride better quiet).The battery seems to be coming back up to a decent state. Now the million dollar question. What if any damage would be done if the car was never charged and screamed around FT Worth with A/C on max for 24K miles? That is a lot of generator usage. Wait it gets better it has not seen a Cadillac Dealer since 9600 mi so no maintenance records . My dealer is going to give it the 22.5k service and change all filters.The car been well cared for interior is pristine except for scratch on CUE that has a loose bezel (ordered) exterior has 1 chip in the silver and the grille is not totally chipped up. I am guessing he just used it as a regular car for what ever reason and did a lot of high speed driving on the DFW metroplex. Still unless there was no access to an outlet why do it? even lotsa chargers around to use it just boggles my mind and gives me some concern for future generator issues.
