$1180

I almost feel better since this price certainly includes California tire recycling fees but does it include sales tax? :?: :?

Re: They want my car

My dealer sent me an email saying my vehicle is "Past Due for its recommended maintenance" and to "please schedule an appointment" and then some coupon offers: The Works Coupon $29.95: Includes engine oil change but synthetic and diesel excluded. Too bad. :? :( Also a filter chan...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

It took Mitsubishi about a week to analyze my battery and make a decision and then two weeks and a day to do all the work of the change out itself. This was last March and I think being in Northern California probably helped speed things up. The service manager also said that Mitsubishi had to send ...

Re: Remote fob range extension?

I would try hanging 4 to 8 feet of wire on the wall and clipping or holding your remote antenna to that while using it. It might be especially effective if you can put the wire in front of a window facing toward you car. How much building is there between you and the garage?

Re: Feb 2012 Miev with Pack Trouble at 40k miles

Later this evening when i got home the EVSE was blinking and done, the pack was at 66%SOC, 11 bars, 360 VDC, and cell #47 was still 0.150 V below all the rest. Since the balancers only drain at 0.1 Amps, it may take several days to bleed all the high cells down to the 3.95. At least i gained 1 bar ...

Do plug it in to recharge it.
Don't put petrol in it.

Re: What tire would you recommend?

When you wear a tire down from 10 or 11/32nds of tread down to 2 or 3/32nds, you've worn away around 1/4 inch of tread and the diameter of the tire is 1/2 inch smaller, which makes the circumference about an inch and a half smaller . . . . and that changes just about everything That's interesting. ...

Re: What tire would you recommend?

I just had 4 new Yokohama Avid Envigor tires installed on my car and wow are they quiet. I've had them now a month. The old Dulops Ensaves had just over 24,000 miles and would have been good for a little longer except the left front was tire wearing on the outside edge. I've been running the Dulops ...
