Re: Any interested buyers in Hawaii?

Sorry to see you go olagon- yet here's a fine example of the customers that Mitsu is missing by delaying the Outlander PHEV. Thanks! I ended up buying a 2014 Outlander SE with the safety package. Couldn't wait for the PHEV. Happy with it so far. It's loud and sluggish compared to the Miev but it ha...

Any interested buyers in Hawaii?

Am thinking about selling my 2012 SE based in Honolulu. I need a five seater and looking to side grade to the Ford Focus EV. Happy to send details to anyone interested.

Anyway to disable daytime running lights?

Used our iMiev to provide electricity via an inverter while camping. During the day, I couldn't turn off the daytime running lights. Anyone know how to turn them off temporarily? As a side note, I had to turn off the car and wait about 5 mins before turning back on at night for the system to *not* t...

Re: i Loves gridlock!

One unexpected plus with electric cars is driving in traffic is not as bad. ICE cars really suck at MPG on crawls. Opposite with EVs. Honolulu has by many measures the worst traffic in the country so it's a big plus here in my state.

Thinking about getting a Cadillac ELR

Seems like they are now selling for less than $50,000 before tax credits. Love the iMiev but I think with little kids the safety of the ELR seems to be a worthwhile upgrade. Right now I don't let my kids ride in the back of the iMiev if we are going on the freeway. Going to see if I can grab one for...

Re: Wheels, Rims, and Tires

Sorry if this info is in this thread. But to be clear, if I buy the EXACT same tire sizes, will I run into any problems? For instance, Yokohama AVID ENVIgor comes in the same exact sizes for almost 50% less. These work?

Recommendation for bluetooth audio with existing SE stereo?

I'd love to add a Bluetooth option to take calls and stream my music to the existing SE stereo. Anyone do this and have advice to share? Thanks!
