I'm close to buying a 2008 roadster. The car has 2500 miles. So not a lot of cycles in 5 years, which I'm not even sure is a good or a bad thing. Obviously the battery tech is at least 5 years old in the car, and warranty has expired or will expire soon. What kind of range loss can I expect with 5yr old batteries? Will I be able to drive the car for 1 or 2 years without having to replace the pack? Is looking at the range indication on visiting the vehicle enough? Probably not. Is there a battery test I can do?
This question must've been asked before, but after 20 minutes of browsing I wasn't able to find the post. My apologies for the possible double post.
