I kept mine as well. Probably lost some money also. I have my original battery which does between 98 and 101 on the regular charge, as high as 115 on full charge.

I was looking at Teslas and my brother took a look at the Bolt. Neither was a replacement. It also would have cost me to get remove the Jademo for turn in.

The real value of the car comes when it (hopefully) drives forever.

I don't need forever... Just until something near equivalent is produced.
I cross my fingers every day.

The usability of a rav4ev is imho "doubled" by the JDEMO add-on.
Unfortunately, if _any_ of the known quirks ( non related to JDEMO ) hits your RAV4EV, toyota (in my experience) makes you jump to hoops in order to even diagnose it.
I really hope it keeps working for you.
As long as it works, it is one of the most versatile EV's and certainly an economic one available at the moment.
Just hope that it keeps working!

I had quite a bit of issue when I first got the car. I figure now that they replaced the battery and motor, I should be good for a while. Let's hope the DC/DC converter doesn't blow out.

I did order a Model X to back the RAV4 up.
