Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

Big shout out :D to members of this forum for emphasizing the need to monitor the health of aging auxiliary batteries. Used a conductance tester to determine that our factory installed (December 2011) Yuasa battery was degraded by use, time, and temperature fluctuation. The vehicle never exhibited a...

Re: i-Miev armrest

I wrapped the base of the unmodified armrest with a single layer of duct tape and wedged it into the cupholder; in our experience following this simple installation procedure the armrest will bear elbow weight without shifting position. :D

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

JoeS, Couldn't agree more with your assessment of the outstanding value represented by a new i-MiEV in today's marketplace. A dealer accepted our NADA clean retail price offer of $11, 995 for a new 2012 SE model last year resulting in a $5 net transaction profit to us after the $7,500 federal credit...

Re: What EV would you buy or lease if you were buying today?

Hi Oilerlord, Why not go all in and take your wife for a test drive in an i3? The screaming drivetrain, sumptuous interior, and refined telematics will win her over and you will have a wicked fun way to expend all of your excess kWh from the solar array! The ridiculously low acquisition and operatin...

Dashboard cupholder adapter

Use of the dashboard cupholders in the iMiEV for any object with a diameter larger than a soda can requires overcoming the dimensional constraints of the 2.5" x 2.5" square opening. An ideal solution which allows use of the front cupholders for large diameter drink bottles is provided by i...

Re: New Owner - Ben got an iMiEV - Again!

Hi bennelson, While the description of your road trip is immensely entertaining, a drama-free alternative for transporting a MiEV over long distances across state lines to or from a dealership which we have employed is hiring a car transporter service for door-to-door relocation from your home addre...

Re: 1st Cold driving here with my 'i' :(

Hi tigger19687, Treat yourself to some heated motorcycle gear (http://www.thewarmingstore.com)! I know a cyclist who rides all over New England year round wearing a 12V heated jacket, pants, gloves, hat, socks, etc. Use a portable LI-ion battery or plug-in to the dashboard socket in your MiEV while ...
