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...

Electrical chaos

2012 ES model. I couldn't find my car keys. When I found them in the ignition of the car all the lights were blinking at me and there was a strange clicking noise. I think I left the car turned on ( I had just returned from a trip) and plugged in the level one charger then went into the house. My la...

Re: Re-surging interest in the i-MiEV?

With the recent acquisition(majority ownership) by Nissan of Mitsubishi I remain hopeful that the I-Miev will continue to be in the vision of Carlos Ghosn and the Nissan/Renault/Mitsubishi Alliance. With the proposed upcoming range increase of the Leaf perhaps the I-Miev could be given a range boost...

Window glass replacement

Has anyone replaced window glass in their car?
I'm curious about availability of the glass itself.
Local Mitsubishi dealer indicated it will have to be ordered from California but I was wondering if anyone had experience with a local source.
Passenger rear door window was smashed.
Thanks

Mitsubishi and Nissan

According to a news story I heard today, Nissan now has a 34% ownership position in Mitsubishi. Perhaps the I-MIEV will be promoted/advertised more now as Nissan would have two models to present to the public. Maybe a larger capacity battery would be in the works for the I-MIEV as the Leaf sees its ...
