Ignition/door keys

After five years of use I finally had to change the battery in my every day key to the car. After completing that task I decided to check the spare key that has been sitting in a drawer unused for five years. Lo and behold it did not work. Thinking perhaps it was the battery too, I opened the case ,...

Re: after a full charge how many miles supposed to show on the miev display?

Recently my range remaining display is only showing 45-47 miles of range when the car is fully charged (all 16 bars displayed). Usually it will indicate 57-59 miles. The car is a 2012 model. This happened after the car sat unused for about five days with the car charged to about 12 bars. Any thought...

Re: Parking light bulb replacement

Both my parking light bulbs have stopped functioning. Does anyone know where the fuse is located for these bulbs?
I've searched the manual and the fuse holders but was unsuccessful.
Stay charged my friend.

Re: Stock Shocks Replacement Options

2012 ES model, original owner: Almost 50,000 miles and the rear shocks are toast. As earlier posters have mentioned, replacements are only available from Mitsubishi. Apparently no inventory in the USA at this time, so mine are on their way from Japan. Just goes to show the problem with a limited pro...

Fuse location for parking lights in 2012 ES

I've "searched" the forum and could not find this topic. Owners manual does not appear to show location of fuse for parking lights. I seem to recall a post many years ago about the difficulty of accessing the bulbs so wanted to confirm the status of the fuse(s) first. Both right and left l...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

The comment, "my Model 3 reservation" has been mentioned a number of times in this posting.
I also have a model 3 reservation and wonder how many other IMIEV owners have put up deposits for that car.
Stay charged my friends.

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Best wishes to fellow five year ownership members. I leased my car in February, 2013 (2012 model) and bought it two years later. Unpretentious is a great description for this vehicle. Many people scoff at its looks and limited range. However, it has served me well as a ("fill in the blank"...

Blower fan speed

For some unknown reason I decided to run the heater today. It's only about 85 in Houston today. Anyway, I noticed something that was never apparent before. When I switched the ac/heater knob (top one) from heater to ac and back again, (with fan switch on medium speed and mode selection switch to &qu...

Re: Mitsubishi Will No Longer Sell the i MiEV in the USA

Naturally I was greatly disappointed but not surprised about the news that Mitsubishi will discontinue the I-Miev in the USA.
My I-Miev now joins my 1980 Commuta Car (City Car) as a orphaned electric car.
Let's hope the same thing doesn't happen to the model 3 Tesla I have reserved.
