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 h...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

The ONLY thing I have done is add a little bit of distilled water to keep the level in between the 2 lines.
And in my town the temperature has never gone above 98F in the summer. So the cooler weather may help. I’m just amazed how this classic 12v battery keeps on going.
Knock on wood.,,

I had to cover the tow there because I couldn’t prove it was a bad pack. Luckily my Allstate card covered the whole tow. Aft...

Re: Illinois Insanity

From the OPs article: "The highest fees are in Georgia and West Virginia, each of which charges EV drivers $200 per year." They need to add Idaho @ $200/yr. Because of adding EVs in the mix, I'd suggest getting rid of all state gas tax. But it has to be done in all states so that border ci...

Re: How Many of You Have Had a Windshield Replaced?

Same thing happened to me. Replaced mine in Aug 2017. Had the crack for a year and got tired of it. Initially we had the glass drilled to stop the growth. But the crack laughed at that.
Total cost with tax from Safelite was $417.85.

Re: Mitsubishi Will No Longer Sell the i MiEV in the USA

Yea. I've been loving mine up in Idaho. I don't think I'll ever see that good of a price for a new EV again.

Re: 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV SE for sale -- new traction battery!

I like it when 'sold' posts stay up so I (we) can see the market value it sold at. It helps me buy (and sell) other cars.
However, if the title can have the word "SOLD" added, that would make life a little more informative; if you get my drift...
Thanx,
