Re: Survey type questions for those who leased....just curio

Well, I had 4 months remaining on my lease. My payments were $180 per month. I had 12,000 per year mileage and was under when I turned it in a few month early. The residual was something like $28,000(yes, I know, the brand new "I"'s with more standard equipment are selling for $6,000 less!...

Re: Do you feel ICE drivers bully the iMiev ?

I cannot tell you the number of times I have felt bullied while driving the I-Miev. Part of it was just that some people are simply incredibly rude and stupid; it probably had nothing to do with the small car I was driving. But other times, no, it WAS because of the size of the Mitsu. Some yahoo tai...

Re: Went to the dark side, well not really...

DPG: Funny how the end of lease cars seem to be so high priced yet (eventually)sell for so much less. The Chevy dealer I purchasd the Volt from actually offered to buy the "I" from Ally, but they quoted the residual price(something like $26,000!!!!!, are you kidding me??), wouldn't budge a...

Went to the dark side, well not really...

OK folks, my lease was coming up for turn in and I decided against leasing another I-MiEV. I ended up buying a clean, low mileage 2012 Volt at a great price. The Volt had just come off its lease, and made the perfect car for my family. We have an ICE vehicle, a 2002 Kia mini-van that is on its last ...

Climate controls while plugged in, but not using FOB

Just curious if it is possible to activate the heat and A/C while the car is plugged in? I know that it can be done remotely using the key fob, but can one just plug the car in and let it charge, and then turn the heater or A/C unit on and have it work? I tried it today, but got what seemed to be a ...

Re: Any on the lot?

Thanks for the advice, I really appreciate it. I will look on the web as you suggested and see what's available. No need for a test drive as I have been driving my I-MiEV for almost 2 years now and it's coming up to go off lease. Funny that you mentioned a Chevy Volt as I am also looking into buying...

Any on the lot?

Just wondering if anyone is seeing or has seen 2014 MiEV's on dealers' lots are are all of the sales completed by ordering the I-MiEV? I have seen none at the few Mitsu dealerships in the area. If ordering is the only way to get an I-MiEV, how long does the process take?

Thanks,
Lou

DPG: What kind of range boost have you seen using the QC?
