Re: Mitsubishi website

In the US, aren't car manufacturers required by law to provide 10 years of replacement parts availability for any model year? If so, then Mitsu should be on the hook to make parts available for iMiEVs until 2026 or so, right?

Wait. Were the 2016s ever actually released in the US?

App for EV owners to communicate regarding charging?

I'm searching for any kind of app that allows EV owners to easily communicate with each other regarding charging opportunities. More precisely, allowing an EV owner that needs to charge to easily contact another EV owner who is currently charging and asking if it's okay to unplug them to charge, or ...

Re: ComEd's Hourly Pricing Program

I live in the Chicagoland area and switched to ComEd's hourly pricing program 18 months ago. To date, I have saved 24.8% ($311.19) vs. ComEd's standard residential billing program. I've been very pleased with the program and its savings. Of course, it's not for everyone. However, if you are able to ...

Re: Steering Wheel Thumb Control Issues!

A couple years ago, I had an accident that kept my Meepster in the shop for an extended time for repairs. It seems like these issues on the steering wheel controls didn't start up until after that. I don't know if the issues are related to the accident in any way, though, as none of the damage or re...

Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

So, the question on the table is "how do I know I'm hypermiling successfully?" . Let's see, 1. When fully recharging the car after a drive on level ground in average temperatures and not much wind, the Range Remaining (RR) is > 85 miles (137km). 2. When you first set off with a 'full tank...

Re: Steering Wheel Thumb Control Issues!

Just figured I'd post a non-update update. I haven't gotten any closer to figuring out what is causing the steering wheel controls to malfunction. If anything, it is getting worse. It used to be just the Volume buttons giving me issues. Now the pickup/hangup buttons are malfunctioning too! The other...

Re: I Smoked a Porsche at a Stoplight Today!

Understand, RobbW. Understand. BTW, I started reading the thread on your Rt. 66 journey yesterday. I'm only about halfway through all the pages. You just got out to Cali where I left off last. I just want to say that I am thoroughly impressed with your journey. It takes a lot of guts and planning t...

Re: I Smoked a Porsche at a Stoplight Today!

In my daily commute to/from work, I get plenty of opportunities to race other drivers off the line. My daily commute probably accounts for 95% of all opportunities I've had for racing off the line. All these opportunities on my commute come at points where one lane ends a very short distance after t...

Re: I Smoked a Porsche at a Stoplight Today!

I used to beat people off the line, too, and frequently. However, it was never other drivers who were ready for a race, paying attention to the light, and reacting with precision timing. I had alert soccer moms in Toyota Camrys beat me off the line. I'm just saying that in most of my experiences at ...
