Indeed - can be from £2k difference and up (ignoring R Symonds!).If I was thinking of buying a second Ampera, I would go for one that was out of warranty because it seems to reduce the purchase price significantly. This would make it well worth the gamble . . .
Well for my first EV, I figured a low mileage example with a full service history would be worthwhile. I know I spent far too much (and I wanted one in Crystal Red) but one lives and learns. If I could have been more patient (something I have never been known for!) I may well have purchased a less expensive example. In my limited experience, so far, the Ampera is a truly excellent car with very few faults and the few faults that may be found are fixable. If you can get one for less than £9k it must be an excellent buy that should be snapped up without delay.I have a 148,000 mile Ampera, almost had it 12 months now, been absolutely spot on, not spent a single penny on it, awesome car ! I (personally) wouldn’t chase low mileage cars, they’re too big money, mine was £7880
You shouldn't worry too much about where it was serviced unless you are after the warranty.Seen one which had a FSH but one was at Halfords - disappointing as something may have been missed
Count yourself lucky! I've recently had to pay £300 at Arnold Clarke Manchester for the oil change service (plus counting of wheels of course, thrown in for good measure). This keeping warranty intact business is a two edged sword!I didn't even get a new fob battery for my £125
can I ask what kind of electric range you getting? I'm hoping to commute around 40 miles a day if I buy - what percentage you guess would be in EV mode?I have a 148,000 mile Ampera, almost had it 12 months now, been absolutely spot on, not spent a single penny on it, awesome car !

Over 20k miles and 3 years I've averaged 32 on electric. Varies from a high of 52 on a flat test run in summer to low 20s in stop start hilly winter conditions. Most of my miles are pottering around Bristol which is fairly busy and hilly, so I'm sure others on here can beat my mileage. Around 12 C seems to be the temperature at which there is a noticeable drop off in mileage.
A fabulous car though, the best I've ever had.
