    so I'm going to be smart and patient, find the right one that's in good shape and only needs a minor bit of work to get running well, then will consider upgrades. The only one I 100% do not want is an Automatic....can't believe they even offered those.

    The last time I bought one was several years ago, it was $1,000 but not running and was just too far gone to put more money into. This time I want one a bit nicer.
    Ready for a cross-country trip?

    My wife has a plug-in hybrid and drives about 7 miles to work. She has just under 50% left when she gets home. So it finishes charging sometime around midnight. That reminds me. I should look into preventing it from charging until we are in *off-peak hrs (9pm).
    You might also want to check what is best for that battery, it might be better to keep it at 80% rather than 100% unless you really need the extra distance for your next trip.
    Could be better to play in the 30%-80% range than 50%-100%
    Of cause this requires some amount of smart charging or a bit more effort.

    Was coming to say exactly this.

    Most batteries are happiest between 30- 80% full.

    Edit: The color isn't great, and that's the bad part, any major mods might lower the value

    I would pay for one day of doing this. Jeep, Ford?!?!? Do they have anything like this at all for the consumer to see and drive the capabilities of the vehicles? Austria is a bit far. But i'll fucking go!!!!
