Re: Need a longer range ev

I know my preference is a roomy easy entrance and exit from vehicle, which despite its size, is very good in the MiEV. I feel like I'm having to fold myself un-naturally in the Subaru Outback and my daughters sedan. For any vehicle you're going to drive everyday, this is one of the most important t...

Re: Need a longer range ev

We test drove the 2017 LT Bolt: Our daughter liked the rear seating better than the Volt she rode in several years ago. I liked the way it drove. It felt somewhat familiar to the iMiev as far as view out the windshield and position of steering. What I don't like: no Chademo option. upon further read...

Re: Need a longer range ev

I'm going through this process now. Sorry, this will be a long post. Our travel vehicle a 2005 Tahoe is starting to show its age, over 208k miles, has been the perfect travel/towing vehicle for our small travel trailer. The costs to repair a manifold/muffler system last year, now a/c heater issues, ...

Re: Widening Takata airbag recall

I finally had mine done yesterday. My nearest "i" dealer is now in Renton - 41 miles away. This is the one time that long stretches of crawling bumper to bumper traffic is less stressful :) I started out with a 65 mile range, arrived with 36 miles of range left. On the plus side, they gave...

airbag deployment warranty issue was taken care of this week

Do you still have your old evse? Maybe Evse Upgrade can do something with it and have you charging on 240 volts. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I don't, they took the old cord in exchange for the new one. This past Monday the airbag deployment warranty issue was taken care of. Dealer frustration. I ...

It's a great resource and more than likely there are home stations where you could get a charge if needed.


I do have the Plugshare app, thanks

Re: New I-MiEV's --- Maybe, maybe not

I still love my 2012 bought new in 2014, only irritant is that my nearest dealer is no longer a Mitsubishi dealer so I have to go 25 miles across a toll bridge to nearest dealer for any warranty work. I have an awful feeling that Mitsubishi dealers are becoming far and fewer as time goes on, in my a...
