Re: Range extender !

Interesting, but I don't see it as very practical. If stopping for an L1 recharge, it is easy enough to find an outlet and not take the penalty for hauling extra batteries on the journey. But, the small battery and inverter could appeal so some campers, preppers and off-grid tiny home denizens. If s...

Re: Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid (PHEV) thread

Problems continue for the PacHy. Many owners profess love for their new vans, but the problems have not been limited to a poor diode in the Traction Inverter Module (TIM). At least a couple vans have had a loose "bolts not torqued at all" cover on the transmission, causing fluid leakage an...

Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

...we are in Florida's rainy season and with that everytime it rains, I go to the nearby corporate section at night to burn off my tires... What in the world does that mean? Yeah, I was afraid to ask... I presume he's using the wet pavement in an unpopulated location to do donuts or burnouts and de...

Re: Driving on i-Sunshine

I know it's old hat for some members, but I'm super-stoked at setting a new personal PV best after completing my fourth solar project just in time for our very sunny Seattle summers. Yesterday's 45.2 kWh of solar production exceeded our average daily consumption, but the real kicker was watching as ...

Re: Mitsubishi on Capacity Loss

That's a bummer, Carsten. I'm also just past 70k miles and still seeing a lot of 81 RR mornings and no noticeable performance decline. For the good of the order, this could be a good time to get a price quote from Mitsu on a non-warranty battery replacement...
Thanks,
Jay

Re: Trouble locating replacement windshield

Interesting. I've had my windshield replaced twice at the local Safelite and it arrived within 24 hrs both times. (Seattle metro area) My windshield is cracked again so I got a Safelite quote for $479 a month ago and they lowered the price $40 a week later, $50 off after that. A new quote just now o...

Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

Agreed- no need to ever use the heater to drain a battery. "memory effect' is for all practical purposes nonexistent in these batteries, and excess cycling will certainly cost more in battery service life and energy use than any possible benefit. My pack remains very well balanced though normal...

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.
