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

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
