    Turns out the wife likes her LEAF better. I had been looking at the CARMAX 2014's with 5,000 to 14,000 miles that were approx. $35k.

    She is sticking to her LEAF

    There is no point specifying the year. All current generation (2012-2014) RAV4 EVs are absolutely identical with regards to year. The only choice is color. (Proud owner of a pearl white.)

    I may be interested, actually. We've talked about owning a second RAV4, we love our current one so much. How many miles? And you are in Orange?

    I'm in Sacramento. Approx 27000 miles, had it shipped here from Carson Toyota which sold the majority of Rav EV's. I'll even throw in my Seimens Versicharge 30 amp EVSE as I'll be installing the Tesla HPWC EVSE. I paid $ 300.00 to have my Rav shipped from Southern California.

    We bought ours from Carson Toyota as well.

    Sacramento, huh? Ouch. That's a drive for me. I'm in Tucson, AZ. So, that's a couple days each way unless we ship instead.

    I admit, it is tempting, but you may be able to do better locally. The timing isn't right for me; it's about six months earlier than ideal for me, and 800 miles distant. But, don't lose track of me when the time comes if you can't find a buyer.

    Turns out wives change their mind. Picked up a white 7 month old 2014 with 4,000 miles from Carmax in almost new condition. Additional range on the RAV4 EV and the higher up driving position has made her a happy camper. And now we wait for the recall on it to have a solution.
