Re: [POLL] On-Board Charger and DC/DC Converter

That is sort of interesting, but I don't understand what 'potential low durability' means - they are either low durability or they are not Some of them may last for 250,000 miles and 30 years, so until there is an actual failure, it's 'potential low durability' because a large number of them HAVE f...

Re: my 2013 Peugeot iOn will not charge :(

Have you got more details about this warranty extension ? Onboard charger only or the whole HV system and/or battery ? US i-Miev only or i-Miev world wide ? Ion and C-Zero as well ? My guess is US Mitsubishi’s only at the moment. I suspect you're correct - US and Canada only. The letters are from M...

Re: Drivetrain transplant

I think it would probably all fit quite well in a first generation Miata too . . . . and you can pick those up considerably cheaper than the Ghia's I'll bet . . . . but since you already own one and it's looking for a new drive train, why not? We actually bought our first iMiEV when I was running th...

Re: 2012 SE Premium for sale

Should sell quickly Brad!

Half the miles of the other one currently listed here, yours is a Premium with Nav & quick charge and the other one isn't and you're asking more than $1K less. I'll bet it doesn't last long!

Re: CHAdeMO or no CHAdeMO question

Welcome to the forum! - Glad you found us :) True, all NA iMiEV's have the charge doors on both sides. QC was an option on ES models (those with the steel wheels) and if so equipped, the little lever beside the drivers seat which opens the left side charge door is a clue - If you see that little lev...

Re: Just had the passenger airbag recall work done

Count your blessings, I guess - My closest dealer who works on EV's is 120 miles (200 kms) away and the cars have to go there on a flatbed tow truck!

Re: 2012 Raspberry i-MiEV, thinking of buying this

*If* it was still eligible for the tax credit, the seller would have to be an idiot not to take the credit himself and then sell the car, which is nearly new for the $7,800 he's asking . . . . so I think it's safe to assume you couldn't get the credit As to the condition of it's battery - That would...

Re: Different versions

What's a 'triplet'?? Been here for 7 years and never heard that term before

To my knowledge, every model of the iMiEV uses the same electric motor

Re: 2012 Raspberry i-MiEV, thinking of buying this

Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us Most 2012's sell in the $4,500 to $5,500 range, depending on mileage and condition - CarMax probably paid the owner less than that when they acquired the car, but they usually mark them up substantially for resale Quick Charge was a factory option on some ES m...
