Re: I have a secret

Is it possible they went by the service interval screen by mistake? There are a bunch of screens that are easily confused.

It would be tough for a 2017 to have 14,000 miles already, but I suppose it's possible.

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

It is a shame that it will never be widely recognised at the first mass-market EV of the modern era. It's also a shame that in about 10-15 years, very few if any will be on the road - but I will have to wait and see. So true. Many don't realize that the i-MiEV accomplished a nationwide US rollout f...

5 Year Ownership Review

Wow. I can't believe it's been nearly 5 years since purchasing the I-MiEV. Where has the time gone? I must say that everything that I've been through with the I-MiEV, the places it's been, the other EVs I've seen and driven, and everyone I've met, living the EV life has been really good to me. I've ...

Re: 12 Volt Source Behind Glovebox??

There must be a wire somewhere there I can use as a 12 volt source to power a back-up camera - Anyone know what color wire to look for? Thanks! Don The easiest place I can think of is the radio harness. If you want to make it 100% reversible, then you can pick up male and female adapters for Mitsub...

Re: Aux battery short circuit

It could be as simple as a bad 12 volt battery. Both of my i-MiEVs have been sitting for a while to keep them off the salty roads. I went to start Bear the other day to find the 12 volt battery sitting at 7 volts, but due to the cold, it wouldn't immediately take a charge. Since I have one of those ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Isn't the rear door mechanical release behind the speaker grill like in the Model X?

Re: Garage EVSE Location

For those that have a two car garage that want to back in with both I-MiEVs, I found a pretty neat solution for charging the right hand side car. This requires attic space above the garage, though.

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

So, now that temperatures are in the single digits, I'm finding that battery heater power has increased, but not significantly. The bigger issue is that the wipers permanently have ice blocking them in (more of it has evaporated than has been defrosted by cabin heat). This morning, it was a balmy 0 ...

Re: EVs in Everyday Life

Been seeing red LEAFs lately. I parked next to one at Giant Eagle on Saturday, and another one passed me yesterday on the way home. I also pass a blue Model X most mornings now.
