I'm going to test drive a 2017 with less than 5000. What should I look for? I've asked them to charge it all the way so we can drive Ev only to deplete the battery, what KWh should I expect from this car? What is a good price? Titanium with 501a package. Thanks!

You might want to compare the price of this car with a new 2017 C-MAX Energi minus the tax benefits you'd get buying new.  For example, starting in 2017, Colorado provides a $5000 state tax credit (payable to the finance company, so you can get it right away), and the C-MAX also qualifies for a $4007 federal tax credit (or whatever your total federal tax bill is, if it's less than $4007). So in Colorado that's potentially $9K off the price of a new 2017 C-MAX Energi right there. These tax credits only apply to new purchases.

What price are you getting for the used one?   At 5k miles I doubt that you can see any battery degradation.  Check the car over for other things like scratches, wear marks, etc.

So I wasn't sure how to do the test. We just did a slow highway drive from a full charge on EV only. The trip said 5.5 when it switched to ICE. When we stopped and checked the trip meter it said 19 miles EV. Not sure on the price

5.5kwh out is good out of the battery.  Speed affects range so at 55 it might be 21 miles at 60 could be 19 and at 38 could be 30.

So battery looks good? We're at the dealership now trying to decide. They're asking 20k for a titanium with 501a package.

Just so you know I bought a fully loaded titanium 501a with pano roof for 29,250k.  With 4k tax rebate and 1500 mass rebate, its 23,750.

 

Mine was tri coat white which is also more expensive, plus interior package, etc, sticker price was 35,600 if I recall correctly.

 

Maybe they give you a little bit more, Good luck!

The tax credits make the new car more attractive, IMO-- if you can use them. You'll need to be itemizing your taxes, and have a large state tax bill. I don't recall if the state credit can be split between two or three years.
