Re: Battery Degradation

Kenny, I will be at the local Mitsu-dealer to get myself and the EV introduced to them - I just moved to VT at the End of August. They will (hopefully) check the drain and the main battery and let me know, if the recall notice applies to me. Should be interesting. They can't be worse than the dealer...

Re: Battery Degradation

Simon, It's the 12V-batteries that die all the time. If I don't use the car for a couple of days, it doesn't open with the key fob and doesn't start. initially I suspected the aftermarket front and back traffic camera, but even with them off, it happens. With the car of and no charger connected I ha...

Re: [POLL] On-Board Charger and DC/DC Converter

I have a 2012 MiEV, bought in summer 2013, with about 88,000mi and get a summer range of about 40mi driving country roads and in a small town. The range dropped abruptly after about 40,000mi and I started to have a dead 12V battery, if I didn't use it for a couple of days. Over the years I have swap...

Re: Alignment Issues and Discussions

Don, Thanks. The skinny front tires have bothered me from day one. I am not an aggressive driver and return a healthy 4.5 - 5.5mi/kWh on my commutes with half of it in the HOV-lanes around DC. I have these scary moments, when driving with everybody else in rush hour traffic - it shouldn't be like th...

Re: Alignment Issues and Discussions

I'm at 75,000mi and have to replace my front tires again. It will be the 4th set and all of them wear out excessively and evenly on the outside. I have a 2012. I had the alignment done at Mitsu every time I got new tires. The car was/is always scary on motorway ramps - It starts sliding and the ABS ...

Re: Mitsubishi on Capacity Loss

It gets more interesting. I had a message from the dealer on my phone today, that the mechanic found a rapidly deteriorating range on my MiEV. Duh - I was at the same dealership about 2 months ago and told them, that my range went drastically down over winter and never came back in spring. They chec...

Re: Mitsubishi on Capacity Loss

Update on my MiEV: The dealership called me and wants to keep the MiEV and drive it for as long as it takes to replicate the issue. They put a recording device on it and have a mechanic drive it every day. It took 71,000mi to have the event once, I just hope, that it doesn't take that many miles aga...

Re: Mitsubishi on Capacity Loss

All, I have an update on my MiEV: 2 days ago on my way home I all of a sudden lost power and the car would only drive like in E-mode with a maximum of around 30mph on a flat road. I ahd 54mi of range left and the display showed the yellow RBS-, car!- and ABS Off-sign. When I tried to accelerate, the...

Re: New traction battery under warranty- will that new battery have its own 10yr 100k warranty?

I posted all the info under the thread "Mitsubishi on Capacity Loss".
They didn't give me anything in writing.
I just tried EVBattMon and it didn't connect to my OBDLink MX via my S4. I will try with my Tab Pro tonight.
Regards,
