Managing private messages in this forum?

Re: new owner question

Don explained more about alignment that I ever could. I'll just add a few notes: # Several (at least two of us) got new MiEV's delivered with the front wheels toe set not quite correctly. That COULD cause what you report. Perhaps worse, it can wear your expensive front tires quickly (unfortunately, ...

Re: Options for repairs when service is now sparce and distant?

Well, Don and Weogo at 75 and 110 miles from dealer service won't be in as deep shit as us 6 MiEV owners here near Medford Oregon several hundreds of miles out in event of really needing dealer diagnostics or repairs. :( Assuming the MiEV is drivable, even 110 miles is doable on one intermediate cha...

Apologies for feeding this off-topic branch of the thread.... But, re.... "......At the risk of venturing further OT, I have heard the same for the Volt. March 2019 is the end of the line. Probably several reasons: 1. Tesla Model 3 2. Chevy Bolt cannibalizing sales (100% electric and goes almos...

Options for repairs when service is now sparce and distant?

When we purchased 5 years ago our Mitsu dealer service was 12 miles away. That dealer bailed out of Mitsubishi about 3 years ago. Now our closest is 450 miles one way. Basically unreachable unless trucked there. At the time of the great airbag recall there was a dealer service "only" 200 m...

Re: How Well Does My Remaining Range Compare With Other Older Cars?

FWIW: I've got 35,000 on our 2012. Purchased off dealer lot in April 2013... where it had been sitting for, I guess, a year. When new I used to be able to COUNT on 70 miles (113 km) showing on the RR on a full charge. And once got a legit 125 miles on a full charge. Our driving mix is part local at ...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

"...I now also have a new Chevy Bolt, which is 10X the car that the Miev is..." As I mentioned in another post, even though I don't own one, I rather like the Volt...... particularly now that there are good used ones out there coming off lease at prices that make them very attractive to th...

Re: A bill in congress to stifle EV's and alternative energy generally

Hi Don. I strongly agree. Don't get me started, or we might turn this forum into a political and social rant :roll: (albeit, IMO "justified rant.") That said.... One rare, but documentable, occasions, calls to senators and representatives on specific issue have resulted in stopping some of...
