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,

Re: Winter tires, for year round use ?

Though I've never had any real seat time in a Volt with OEM tires, my work's Volt currently has some rather aggressive looking winter tires on it. Range sucks, but that car can take a 40 MPH turn at 60 with no sweat (meaning a turn that sensible people take at 40 :lol: ). As for the Volt's range, t...

Re: What Are Electric Car Owners Paying to Charge Their Cars

When I lived in Illionis (Springfield area) they had complicated system; a lot of taxes and fees and that changes again afer 300kWHrs is hit. I couldn’t follow it. So I just looked at my total monthly kWhr and total bill and it seems to always divide to 8.7¢/kWhr. We paid about $100/month. Most of t...

Re: Mitsubishi and Nissan

I could be quoting this wrong since I'm just writing off of memory.
Didn't Nissan charge their batteries to 4.2V while Mitsi charges to 4.1V? That would make the Mitsi battery last much longer. Thus I hope Nissan and Mitsi don't get their battery technologies mixed up.

Re: Legion Solar on Kickstarter

"If my power goes out, can Legion Solar still provide power to my home? No. Legion solar generates electricity only when there is grid power present. " If I ever go solar it would be for self sufficiency. So Legion is out. Plus it's a great bonus to have solar power if grid power goes down...

Re: service at 24 month..how much should it cost?

... Also, a couple of weeks ago, I did have to stomp the brakes to clear off the rust on the brakes. Put the car in neutral, the brake pedal gets the front rotors, and the emergency brake takes care of the rear brakes. Makes for a quieter ride after a rain or wash. ... Are you saying you do this wh...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

I guess my dead battery was a fluke. I accidentally left a dome light on last night, and because I level 2 charged instead of level 1, the 12 volt battery had to keep power to the light nearly all night :oops: . ... I level 2 charge all the time. My dome light comes on initially. Then it turns off ...

Re: Why I Don't Have Range Anxiety

Now when people ask “what’s the range”, I answer with “Good question! We wondered that too since we drive 1000miles/month! And our electric bill has gone up $12/month” That get’s their attention. And then they start doing their math. I help out “Like most people here we drive about 30-35 miles/day. ...

Re: New Owner - Ben got an iMiEV - Again!

“ freezing my toes off,” I feel for you. Six months of my year is a cold humid winter. The other 6 months--- is a beautiful summer. We just got over a 3 week below 0F blast. I’ve written other posts on how I handle it. Yes it’s cold. I’ll highlight a few of my other threads: 1. I always wear thin po...
