I've seen them with slightly higher mileage for near half that price... See what kind of deal you can work out with the dealership, personally I wouldn't pay that much, especially with no warranty on the IMA, etc... See if you can get them down somewhere in the 7k range, that way if the battery goes capoot, you can repair/replace and still come out at, or better than the $9900.

No records can be hazardous, have you/they pulled a carfax? That will likely report dealer (and some service station) work that's been done (if any.) if there are no logs there, then be sure to thoroughly inspect it yourself, or have a trusted mechanic do it for you.

There are methods of testing/replacing/balance charging packs in the IMA, they are just a little more involved then plugging in your typical scan tool, though. There are several threads here, as well as a big crowd on insight central that can assist you with that.

Best of luck to you and your quest!
