Only owned the car for 3 months, so some of the "never" answers are really "not yet". Love the car, though I do find it "needy". It's never left me stranded, but a number of small things needed to be taken care of, some of which were an unintentional "gift" from the prior owner. This is my first electric car, and I find that managing the battery charging is something one needs to inject in their daily routine, but that's an ok tradeoff.
