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.

Re: Pot hole and bent wheel

A recent encounter with a pothole bent the right front wheel enough to cause an air leak that luckily allowed me to still get home. Being a DYI type of person I thought no problem I will just remove the wheel and take it to my friendly tire dealer. Much to my surprise, the lug wrenches I tried from ...

Extended warranties

Now that our cars are getting on in age, has anyone looked at extended (third party) warranty programs ? I received an unsolicited letter from one such company today and enjoyed hearing all the ICE components that would be covered if I purchased this platinum program to the tune of $595/year. In the...

Re: Electrical chaos

My comment with the 12 volt battery was poorly worded. What I meant to say was the 12 volt negative connection was done after I had disconnected the EVSE and turned off the key. I was still getting a strange clicking noise with the key off as if a relay was opening and closing. Sorry for the confusi...

Re: Electrical chaos

Follow up: After running an errand (in another vehicle) I returned and checked the 12 volt battery voltage with the negative lead still disconnected: 12.41v so... the battery probably wasn't the problem. Reconnected the terminal and all seems well. "Ready" light came on and other indicator...
