Re: Charging two i-Mievs

A single 14-50 socket near the garage door makes the most sense, if you're going to go to the trouble to have an electrician install anything. With a proper home made wye pigtail, you could easily plug two EVSE's, either L1 or L2 or one of each into that single socket. Maximum versatility, minimum ...

Re: Recent recall for brake vacuum pump. Issue of distant dealership.

No notice for me yet. Fortunately a Mitsubishi dealer opened in my town a few years ago... they did my last recall... had the green "i" and everything, although I assume that program is no longer in effect. (?)

My least favorite feature

The "low temperature" chime. Every time it goes off (for the first time in a while), I'm like "Ack! What's wrong with the car?" before I realize "Oh, it's cold outside. Thanks, I knew that."

Re: Wanted: Charging remote

Yes, it should be at the dealership where i bought it but they say they can't find it. They couldn't sell it so used it for people in for repair could use it, and listed it last month. No manuals in it either... If it helps, you can find the manual(s) in PDF form online -- just search "i-miev ...

Re: Car not turning on

So, it was the 12v. Are these special batteries? The dealer is charging me $400, and had to ship the battery in from somewhere?? Dangit. I was able to buy the side mirror on eBay for $75! This is a 2012. They're not special at all, they're standard 151R car batteries you can get anywhere. Do not pa...

Aw, you gotta use it once, just to try it. It's fun to see the bars go up so fast. :)
