2012 SE Not Starting, dealer want almost $8k for bad MCU inverter

Just got sad news from the dealership that my 2012 I Miev SE has a bad Motor Control Unit Inverter. They informed me the warranty timed out in May even though it is still under 60k miles. The dealer said they were able to drive the vehicle around and had to reach out to their expert to find out why ...

Heated Seats

I haven't shown up here in a while, but I have some questions about the heated seats to see if there is a problem with mine. My heated Seats seem to come on briefly after about 5 minutes for about a minute or so and then seem like they turn off for another 5 min or so, then repeat. Being that the he...

Chargin noise normal?

I finally have my MiEV and am loving it :) it is such a fun little car and a big head turner! One of my first concerns is a noise that it makes when charging. After plugging the car in it makes the fan sound for a short burst of time and then stops (I believe this is normal). After that it randomly ...

Re: Taking an i for an i.

Noticed this response a bit too late, unfortunately mine is still sitting in Oregon some problem with the transportation company that was supposed to have already picked it up :( I like your strategy, I had my Japanese girlfriend with me urging me to walk away when they wouldn't give me the numbers ...

Re: 2013 I-MiEV

I figured I should follow up with the details since there is a little interest. I have since spoken with the dealership I bought my 2012 from and he thinks this person is not being honest for whatever reason. I took out the names and email addresses but the messages have not been modified. Also adde...

Re: Which Level 2 charge station to get for home?

Thanks for pointing out my Math error in the original post and I fixed it. I ended up going with the AeroVironment charge station after seeing that it appears to be fairly widely used by businesses/dealerships (you can see a bunch of images of the same one rebranded for dealerships). I also saw that...

Re: Out of state purchase/shipping advice?

Re: Taking an i for an i.

I actually live in the Seattle area, but they were also telling me about this "Oregon buyer". The funny thing is after you bought that I ended up getting one shipped up from Eugene, Oregon for almost the same deal I had setup with Auburn for the same color/package. So why would someone fro...
