Hi fellow EV/PHEV enthusiasts,
I have had a Mitsubishi Minicab MiEV Minivan and love it dearly but unfortunately it's not reliable enough for a work vehicle and is again currently out of action. I would like to still run predominately on electricity as we have solar and a battery at home and of course the environment.
I'm on the look out for an Outlander PHEV second hand as I will have dogs in the back, so the interior doesn't need to be in great condition and I'm hoping to pay around 20k max for one which probably means I could only get a 2014MY right? Also that means the battery will be losing it's normal charge and in 1 - 3 years will lose it's range. Does anyone know how much it could lose after that time?
Is trying to purchase a 2014MY Outlander PHEV second hand as a private sale a bad idea? Would you recommend paying the extra from a dealer so they'd service it or just get it looked at by someone who has experience working on PHEVs and go for the cheaper private sale?
Thanks in advance for your help?
