Hi all. I'm considering buying a CR-Z and have several basic questions...
What are the pros/cons of owning one? Should I stay away or dive in?
Any common issues or faults that I should look out for when checking out a used CR-Z?
Main differences between the various trim options/packages?
Differences/improvements between model years?
How long do those old hybrid batteries last for?
I heard, the 2012? 2013? CR-Z's introduced an improved battery pack? Is this true? I'll be looking at JDM models, so I guess a USDM 2013 would be a JDM 2012??
Anything else you wish you knew before buying one?
