New member here.  I am considering purchasing a fully loaded 2013 C Max Energi with 68K miles.  The dealer let me take the car home for the night so I had the chance to fully charge and deplete the battery.  Unfortunately it only got 3.7kWh usable on a charge so there is a fair amount of battery degradation.  I'm still considering it anyways due to the low price of $8k.  Thoughts?

8k sounds about average for that year and mileage. I have a fully loaded 2013 as well now with around 65k on the odo and last I checked KBB it ran somewhere in the $8-10k range. Sadly nobody but enthusiasts are going to care to track battery degradation so dealer sales are never going to have battery degradation factored into the price so something to keep in mind. Up to you how much the battery degradation is of a concern especially depending on what other options are available.

 

Just my 2c.

If they have another Cmax maybe swap for another and see what that battery has.  Its possible to get a better battery depending on how the owner treated it.  I had 73+k miles on my first 2013 Cmax and the battery still had 5.4kwh output in June of 2017 4 years later.

My wife's battery degraded.  She didn't notice the difference to her wallet.  Nobody, I mean nobody, can beat Raja's battery care.  In fact, his ideas should be developed into a program for the C-MAX to be installed as one of the switchable modes:  EV Now, EV Later, and EV Raja.

 

It's still a great car, and maybe if you show the dealer sales person the decreased battery capacity they might consider knocking down the price some?

I have a fully loaded 2013 with new tires and 72K miles in Denver Dealer is offering me 5K for trade in.  I would sell you mine for 6K if you want to take a trip to Denver and I would not pay more than 6K for it.

another possible option:  3rd party replacement battery pack such as from Greentec auto----greentecauto.com      I have not looked for other 3rd party vendors that swap battery packs.

Their website seems to say they don't have C-Max replacements: Link
