I'm looking at a couple of used Outlander PHEV's. I'd love to know some thoughts by honest owners!
1 - How much does the battery degrade, and how noticable is it? I'm looking at a 2015 model with 87,000kms and a 2017 with 57,000kms. Would the batteries be in around the same condition? Is there an easy way to tell during my test drive?
2 - The 2015 model is now out of warranty. What is the servicing like on these? Does anyone know when I'd likely need the batteries replaced and how much this costs approximately? I can't seem to find anything clear online. I'd like this car to last me 10 years... Is this likely?
3- We only have street parking at home which is not ideal for charging, however there is an EV fast charger near my house. I'm hoping that one charge a week would suffice for our normal daily drives of around 6km /day - but if we don't get around to charging it very often, does the car function well in 'normal hybrid' mode?
Forgive my terminology, I hope my questions make sense!
Thanks in advance for any help. This looks like a good forum!
