I purchased a salvaged blue 2014 from IAAI Seattle this week, Vin ending in 24981, license plate BKJ3501
Anyone know the backstory on this car?
I'll be hauling it on Monday, and if you need parts, send a PM or email me jray3 at a o l
I won't ship the battery, it is reserved either for my mother's car or a paying customer that can get their car to Seattle.

Cheers,
Jay

Have you thought of a price for the 2014 pack assuming a paying customer?

We just bought a third one - A 2012 SE Premium in Raspberry which had sat unsold on a dealers lot for 3 months . . . . with gas here at $1.60 a gallon, they're not big sellers right now :?

When we bought our SE brand new in May of 2012, the dealer had a purple one, but since it was a Premium, it was about $4k more than the SE we bought, so I used that as an excuse not to end up driving a purple car for the next 10 years!! :lol:

From what I've seen over the years, the vast majority of the SE Premiums went unsold and were eventually turned over to the lease program and that made them true bargains because when they went to auction and were subsequently sold, nobody knew they were more desirable (and should bring more) than the ES's - In fact, many Premiums (including this one) were advertised as ES's when they were acquired by a dealer

Won't know if we got a bargain or not until we get a few charges and discharges on the battery, to see what shape it's in

Thank you phxmiev. I'm open to generous offers on the battery, otherwise it goes to my dear old mom's car.
I'm keeping the drivetrain for experimentation, but all exterior (blue) and interior (black) parts are available, other than the following that are sold/damged.
Front bumper valence, hood and fenders
Front suspension
Passenger side doors, front and rear.
Passenger headlight and sideview mirror.

The bumper beam is untouched and I have one front alloy and two rear alloys available, as well as their tires, approx 50% wear.
Otherwise, if it is not excluded above, let me know of your interest.
Cheers,
Jay

Here's a general note on passing your old cars along: CLEAN OUT YOUR STUFF!
Even if the car is totaled in an accident, if you survive, remove all personal documents.
In the salvaged 2014, along with a set of stainless cookware, a dozen UNBROKEN eggs that were four months old, and a burst 6-pack of cheap beer, I procured enough privileged information to do a world-class theft of identity, even though none of the documents were important enough to warrant a return to their originator, so they have been destroyed. You cannot count on the recipient of your old car to be as scrupulous!
