Re: [Battery Warranty] A potential nightmare that turned out ok

Greetings JoeS,

I have a letter dated September, 2015 from Mitsubishi
(TSB-15-54-002)

"Affected vehicles
Model: 2012 i-MIEV"
It then lists my VIN

Phone number listed is: 1-888-648-7820 (M-F, 7am-4pm Pacific time)

Stay charged my friend.

Stock antenna replacement

I have noticed my stock antenna is cracked and deteriorating rapidly. (Rubber(?) is drying out badly.
Has anyone replaced theirs with a OEM Mitsubishi antenna? How about availability and cost?
Thanks.
Stay charged my friends.

Re: An I-MiEV in Parade Magazine

Amazing.
Of all the electric cars on the market that could have been in the article and there was our humble IMEV.
I was thrilled to see our car. I wonder how many in the general public saw the picture and wondered, "what is that"?.

Re: Battery light

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

151R is the correct group size. Changed my lifeless original (2012) battery today for a new Interstate flooded lead acid.
Getting the positive connection disconnected was tricky since there is not much slack in that cable.
All is good.
Stay charged my friend.
