Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Anyway, to get back on track, I'm glad to hear that everyone is still enjoying their i-MiEV after all these years, and I'm glad to see newcomers still streaming in. After a period of zero used availability in the UK, I can see 5 for sale in the country (2 I's, 3 clones), and it would appear that va...

Re: Shifter Problem & Warning Lights

That salt has a lot to answer for! :x I had meant to have a look at the shifter at the weekend and jack the car up so I could see underneath and give it a good clean, but never got round to it. :roll: Today, I start the car and move it and the same problem happened but it was when going from revers...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Utilitarian, simple by design, high quality, value-providing and individual. I too agree that the modern EVs are overly-laden with expensive tech, and that simplicity in this application is welcomed. Also, I cant think of a simpler car to drive. For me, the most welcomed aspects are the size and lac...

Re: 12 Volt Source Behind Glovebox??

Picking up from the fuse box by tapping into an existing fuse is always preferable to cutting a loom wire in my opinion. Another option would be to tap into the post-loom part of the stereo power - though some newer head units have a USB or other power tap straight from the back of the unit - worth ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I would love a M3, but would have to be only once they are in full swing production wise - im sure they will get there. Didn't the same shindig happen with the early Model S cars... faults reported, then they sorted it all out? Even the first Leaf's were not great. I tend to go for cars towards the ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Tesla 3 teardown: Some of the comments about build quality are worrisome to me. Clearly, this car remains stuck somewhere between pre-production and mass production still. I suspect that when Tesla has cleared the backlog of pre-orders from the poor souls that get the first wave, they will produce ...

Re: An iMiev for my wife

Ouch, I misread the mileage: I thought it said 11,000km not 110,000km. :o With this mileage I would indeed go to the trouble of verifying battery capacity and do a much more serious examination of the car than if it had 11,000km! Also, I would negotiate that price down, as that is serious mileage i...

Re: An iMiev for my wife

The only thing I would add to this, is that yes the battery issue is not a problem as long as the Canadian warranty is the same as the US one, though note that this is a light car with narrow wheels, so I would just be checking the general condition items found on any car - seats, tyre wear, crash d...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Hi Jray. Car has been used almost every day but it has been quite rainy of late. UPDATE: Just noticed this post from years ago on a Nissan Leaf forum - http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=176176#p176190 Seems that some people have experienced similar problems on the leaf and that it was sof...

Re: Rarer than a Mirai!

Quite amazing that 300 Miraie a month have been sold, and this would be high on my wish list.
