Skylar - Third New England winter storm for our iMiev

Hi, Our iMiev loves snow, ice, wind and cold. Becuase that's what we've had since we got it around Christmas and it's been doing great! Can't wait to see how "The Kitten Kar" (that's why my daughter calls it) will do in normal conditions. Having been that brave and positive during three st...

Re: Should we get a 2014?

Last night we took it to the one bar charge level by going to a restaurant quite far away. No range angst since we know how far we can go and had the running out of power experience on our first night with the car taking it home from the dealer (described elsewhere in the forums). That experience ta...

Re: Should we get a 2014?

The iMiev is working out great. When it gets really cold it loses some range and it doesn't get warm as fast as gas cars do. Before we got it we had defined pretty narrowly what we will use it for and what the limitations would be. But since it is a "around town" car for us we haven't foun...

What is the sound I hear right after plugging in?

Hi,

Every time I plug in to charge the car there's a sound that reminds me of some kind of fan going for a few seconds. Seems to come from under the car. Then it stops. Can someone tell me what that sound it?

Re: Mouse in the Miev!

There may be less heat overall but I think it's the constant heat available at all times as the vehicle is being charged that may be tempting to rodents. I also use the remote to preheat the car very often which also generates heat at times when there's no one in or around the car to scare them away.

Any noticeable benefits of replacing bulbs with LEDs?

Hi,

I checked on Amazon and it seems like I can get all lights in my 2014 iMiev converted to LEDs. Has anyone done this and is it worth it as far as power consumption is concerned?

Re: Cold Weather and Battery Warming System

I've now been through a really cold snap with out iMiev. The temperature went down to -11F. We did not have problems keeping the iMiev warm while driving. Well, warm enough at least :) But the heater seems to be designed for temperatures above 0F. But otherwise the iMiev seemed to like the cold and ...

Mouse in the Miev!

Hi, I have had many cars parked in the same location over the years. We got our iMiev right before Christmas and today as I was coming back from taking my daughter to school a mouse ran accross the dash. I jumped of course and the mouse ran and hid. I have never had a mouse coming into any of our ca...

Re: Re-surging interest in the i-MiEV?

We got ours during an ice storm Dec 23. Dealer forgot to charge it and I didn't know how to read the instrument panel so we stopped on the freeway after 12 miles. Dealer sent a tow truck. A flying start on our iMiEV ownership. Took it home on a tow truck. Been in love since :)

Re: Re-surging interest in the i-MiEV?

I'm Norwegian but live in Massachusetts. When I'm over there there's iMiEV's everywhere. They are the electric little car perfect for going around town. When we tried to find one over here we had a very hard time. The Mitsubishi dealer here wouldn't even consider it and kept ranting about the the Mi...
