Had it been offered for $2000 on this forum, it might have sold more quickly!

It was offered here to forum members first - If someone was interested in buying it, they could certainly have made an offer and I suspect some agreement might have been reached. I'm SURE he would like to have sold it for a bit more than $2K - It would have been a bargain at twice that and once he knew CarMaxs offer, He would probably have accepted $3K or even $2500. But, if you don't ask, you'll never know

i tried to buy it.

i sent him a PM on May 6th and said that i was interested to buy his car, sent my name, email and cell number, and requested the VIN, which he sent and also posted to the forum. i thought he would get in touch with me when he got back in town, but i never got a call, text or email from him.

My mistake. I replied with the VIN you requested and then didn't hear back so I thought you weren't interested. Looking back, I should have followed up more. I'd been too busy with the move recently and didn't pay enough attention.

If you're still interested, the car should still be at the CarMax in Alpharetta. You can try reaching out to them to see if they'll let you have it for a reasonable amount. If you have trouble making progress with them, let me know.

CarMax doesn't negotiate pricing, so I suspect that they'll list the car for ~$7000--and not budge.

I have a 2012 ES that I plan to put up for sale soon. I have been busy trying to get a house ready to sell + 1001 other chores that are all pressing. My plan is to get it vacuumed out and take some pictures then post it for sale here, craislist and cargurus. I sold another one (SE) about 5 months ago for $5000. That one only had 14,000 miles but it did not have DCFC and it was missing the remote.

The car that will be going up for sale belonged to my wife. It has about 34,000 miles on it but it does have the remote control and it's equipped with DC fast charging. 2 remote/keys included. So I think $5500 is a good price for it based on comps. Battery is in good shape, no problems. Just a few scratches (seems the i-miev paint is easy to scratch), no dents, just a few minor scratches. Seats have had seat covers on so they should be like new.

Everyone in our household (except my son) just got upgraded. I just acquired a previously owned Chevy Bolt EV w/11,000 miles on it. My daughter got my 2011 Chevy Volt, my wife switched to my daughter's 2012 SE Premium i-miev and so my wife's car is sitting idle and has to go.

Oh...my son....He won't drive an i-miev. He's afraid of the short range and he thinks the looks of the i-miev's somehow affect his man-li-hood.

PM me if you like or look for my ad with pictures soon! Hopefully this week.
