Almost new owner

Hello everyone!
I checked for Smart Fortwo EQ for few time now. I live in Vegas, Nevada, and not a lot of buying opportunity. I finally found one with a price I am ok with.
The actual owner let me borrow it for the day by myself (very nice), and we will make the paper work, tomorrow. So today I have to decide!!!
Few things are making me worried, he told me, he is the 2nd owner, he have it for 2 years and doesn't do any service on it. The Smart is from 2014, with 28000 miles and we decide for $5200.
I saw we have to change the battery desiccant cartridges every 2 years, but because Vegas is very dry, may it is not an issue.
I have an other question what is the factory warranty on the battery? "4 years or 50000 miles" OR "8 years or 62000 miles". Should I go to MB to check if everything is ok?
Thank you so much in advance for your advices on this difficult choice and so happy to have finally one!

From the smart USA site: "The warranty on an electric vehicle is the same as our previous gas models, with a little extra. Like gas models, you're covered for defects in material and workmanship for 48-months or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first). However, your electric battery has an 8-year warranty of its own. You might wnat to verify that with one of the remaining smart dealerships.....:)
