The port is nice if there is any where with a CHdeMO charger, otherwise it's dead weight/cost.
Leaf Spy app lets you check the battery health cell to cell, if someone has figured out how to spoof the battery gauge they aren't going to waste their skills selling you a car.
You also aren't going to find a dead pack, you might find one that is almost degraded to qualify for warranty replacement, but that's about it.
Worst case scenario, you spend $3,000 on a used pack, sell the old cells on eBay and make money on the deal.

The heat pump heat is really nice, so are heated seats, do you need them?
It's 8 miles round trip for me to get to work, my old electric cast I literally made a heater from an old toaster and ran it off lead acid batteries with plenty of range to spare.
