Rear Tire For Sale $25

I'm clearing out the garage and noticed I have an extra rear tire from my iMiev I sold. The tire came off last year after about 22k miles, see more details on this CL posting. We're in Central PA. http://lancaster.craigslist.org/wto/6309059932.html I guess it's another $40 to ship it, if you're not ...

Re: Camping with an i-miev

We went camping in our iMiev the past two summers, and it works out pretty well. My son decided to sleep in the car on one of the nights (the ground, despite sleeping bag padding, was a bit too hard for him). He just slept in the passenger seat reclined as far back as possible. It was more comfortab...

Re: 2012 iMiev with QC For Sale in Central PA

Hi PV1 ... will probably lurk, I do love this quirky car and could see myself getting one in the future, even if just a "project" car to mess around with. Our Cmax is the standard hybrid. We had considered the Energi for the plug-in capabilities, but the trunk intrusion for cargo and highe...

2012 iMiev with QC For Sale in Central PA

We traded in our iMiev for a CMax ... life changes sometimes :(. We loved the car dearly. It now has 33k on it, but didn't show any degradation in range (used QC maybe 10 times over the almost 4 years), new tires just recently (my wife dinged a curb ... and we hadn't decided at that point to sell), ...

Re: 2012 w/ 18,000 miles - Newbie Question

We have now roughly 30k miles on our 2012 iMiev, and we've not noticed any degradation in range or other issues with the car. We have several iMievs near us for sale, all around $8k, and low (less than 10k) miles. So, I wouldn't pay more than that for one with 18k miles on it, especially if there is...

Re: First Long distance Road Trip with the i-MiEV

Awesome ... thanks for sharing. Like last year, we just finished a trip last week of about 150 miles one way with some not so well spaced out QCs (one at about 40 miles and another at 120 miles) ... so we had to stop at a campground at just L2 speed for a few hours each way. But, it was fun and an a...

Re: BMW i3 Extended Test Drive

I drove the i3 last week as well for the first time. It was nearly exactly what I was expecting ... a bit more get up and go than the iMiev, more crisp handling, nicer finish, quieter - fewer rattles or random pump noises, smoother, and ~ $20k more :lol: ! I do like the additional range and the abil...

Re: Questions before buying an iMiev

... my employer provides a place to park and a 120V outlet, but no EVSE. That means I must use my own EVSE. For me, it's quite a pain to get the EVSE out and hooked up every time I arrive at work, so I have an extra EVSE that stays at work all the time, plugged into the outlet and secured to a boll...

Re: Questions before buying an iMiev

I didn't see if you will try to by new or used. If you're considering a new iMiev (2014 or 2016) it comes standard with a 120v EVSE that charges faster than the older 2012 model. The old model charges only at 8amps. The new one can do that (for older/smaller capacity circuits) or at 12amps. This equ...

Re: Help Me: I hate the "Golf Cart" comment

Surely this group, collectively, could come up with something better ... "You're entitled to your misguided opinion as to the car's looks, but I'm laughing all the way to the bank and saving the planet at the same time!" I have thought this is the only sensible response, since I hear SUV ...
