We've been warned numerous times in the forum that cars should not be stored with the batteries uncharged. Meaning, the dealer should charge the battery and make sure it is charged at all times. First (obvious) question: What is "charged."? Two lines? more? I gather that two lines can actually mean much less (e.g., 0 ev miles remaining). Second questions: Dig this, from SB 17-093 which Insightman recently, most helpfully, posted: 20. Charge the High-Voltage Lithium-Ion Battery The high-voltage lithium-ion battery should be charged only after all other PDI items are done. [boldface mine] Does this mean that the PDI should be performed as soon as the car arrives at the dealer? If the PDI has not been performed, the dealer is not allowed to charge it. My impression has been that cars sit on dealer lots "uncharged," which is bad. Thus, if I'm shopping for a Clarity, shouldn't the dealer be able to prove by paperwork that the PDI has been completed and, thus, the battery charged? Since it's called a PDI, that sounds as though the dealer should wait until the car is sold and about to be delivered. Third question: Does all this mean that I should insist on seeing the PDI paperwork (including the date when the battery test was performed) before considering a car?
