Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

After searching for a used car in the market long time I finally found a 2010 VW CC with 62k miles on it. Inspected the car myself, a drive test and purchased it. The next day I noticed the right rear door actually does not lock and alarm does not get activated also right headlamp was gone too. So the seller wanted to pay for the repairs($750) and he did which I was really appreciated. The next day I got this steering column lock sign a red flashing sign on the dash. After an online search it turned out very serious that immediately was supposed to get it fixed even there is a recall for it then it was gone by itself no problem with it so far. 2 weeks later this time the left rear door does not lock and the window does not work as well same problem with the right rear door. It turns out this is a common problem with other VW models as well which is the door lock actuator fails because of a poor design(CHEAP part) by the manufacturer then the same day the left headlamp goes off. Parts are expensive compared to Honda parts and do not recommend VW to anyone. I own a 2008 Honda Accord with 238k miles on it. It has been 2 years an there was 206k miles on it. Never had this many problems with my Honda. I really regret for buying a VW. Problems listed below
