Re: Mitsubishi website

Wait. Were the 2016s ever actually released in the US? Sure were, and a few new ones are still listed on Cars.com https://www.cars.com/for-sale/searchresults.action/?mdId=45843&mkId=20030&page=1&perPage=50&rd=99999&searchSource=SORT&sort=year-newest&zc=98390 They also sh...

Re: Has anyone car dolly towed i-MiEV?

I agree with iWatson's assessment: "U-haul is following the tow dolly manufacturers warning to "not" tow a car backwards. My tow dolly manufacturer even went as far to tell me that if I did it, I would be pulled over by the police as it's "against the law". For any other car...

Re: Has anyone car dolly towed i-MiEV?

Sorry, I didn't get the i-MiEV tested with the dolly while I had one available. Schedule got tight as usually happens.

Re: 2012 Won't Start - 12V Battery Dead- NEW SYMPTOMS THAT I WASN'T AWARE OF

Why'd ya dis the stock battery, siai47? I kinda liked that it is old-school and can be watered, which allows longer life than a sealed lead acid, and I've only needed to top it off once. My original battery still seems strong, and the car has served as a mobile 'jump box' for diesel trucks many time...

Re: Navigation system maps updates?

I find the navigation console very useful, though haven't asked the price of an update or felt the need yet. (Of course, when I feel the need it will be too late.) The real-time-traffic is still working on my 2012, and the map doesn't lose connectivity in the urban canyons of Seattle like my smartph...

Re: Alignment Issues and Discussions

So was in conclusive that the alignment is out of spec from the factory? Does this only affect the 2012 or does it affect other years also? Did this appear to address the tire wear issue? 'twas my first i front tires that showed feathering quite early on the outer tread blocks, and yes- a proper al...

Re: CHAdeMO Questions

That is a very unusual fast charging session. On a 50 kW station my slowest ever time was 23 minutes from very low state of charge to 80% and that was in hot weather with the air conditioner compressor running nearly nonstop. There are some lower power CHAdeMO units around here, for instance today i...

Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid (PHEV) thread

Calling out RobbW, now that I see a Pacifica PHEV in his signature line. How's your bigger jellybean doing? I've been watching this van's progress closely since giving up on the Outhlander PHEV, and finally test-drove one last week. Of course, it had never been plugged in with 94 miles on the odomet...
