Re: My least favorite feature

Fri Dec 20, 2019 6:34 am The "low temperature" chime. Every time it goes off (for the first time in a while), I'm like "Ack! What's wrong with the car?" before I realize "Oh, it's cold outside. Thanks, I knew that."" Doesn't bother me. I find that feature slightly ...

Re: What tire would you recommend?

I bought four YOKOHAMA ICEGUARD IG20 tires from tirerack for a total (with tax) of $240. Then Yokohama turned around and mailed me a $60 VISA debit card. I had a local shop put them on for $80 two weeks ago. They look like great tires for the winter here. They have been driving quiet. Some mileage ...

Hello, I own Mitsubishi I-Miev 2012 16 KW. I live in North County near San Diego. My vehicle stills shows 16-bars, but I'm noticing less distance for same charge.

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Hi PV1. You wrote... "...cabin heater in the i-MiEV runs directly off the main battery, ..." I ,m confident you know more about the MiEV traits that I do. And I’m curious about that statement: If I remember right the main panel ready and set a very high voltage. Something like 330 V. I'd f...

Re: Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:
