So sad to be returning Blue Ghost #493, known as Evie in the family.

~55k miles, 4.5 years of pretty faultless operation in warm and cold weather...

Range indicator sucked - we once did 20+ miles beyond the 0 indicator!

Loved the roominess, abilty to park in tight spaces and the general nippyness of the FitEV.. You will be missed!! :cry:

Turned in 2013 Fit EV #268 in May for a 2018 Clarity Electric.

Over 5 years the Fit had 74k trouble free miles except for the recall on the airbags.

what is the procedure in returning the car----did they check the car closely for dents, scratches, etc. Did you have to return the 120V charging cable?

My car now has 75000 miles (4.9 years).

For mine, they did not check closely but I think it was in pretty good shape for 5 years and almost 75,000 miles. There was a scratch down low on the rear side part of the bumper where it looks like someone scraped it in a parking lot. Minor rock chips but not a lot. Interior wise I had a darkly stained right arm rest for the driver and slightly dark stain on door where i rested my arm when the window was open.

They didn't bother to check the car or perhaps they did while I was getting the paperwork done on the Clarity. They had a checklist to go through that you had to sign to make sure they got back key fobs and such. Didn't ask for the 110 volt charger and I didn't mention it nor did I bring it with me. If they did ask for it I would tell them I forgot it and bring it at a later date.
