Re: Problem Charging but it isn't the battery

I'm guessing you'll be pretty happy with the Kia as it 'solves' many of the things most of us think are shortcomings with our iMiEV's - If I didn't already have two of them, I'd be trotting over to the Kia dealer to take a look A 27 Kw battery, 6.6 Kw charger, actual range of 100 miles or better, al...

Re: Larger capacity battery replacement (20+kwh?!?)

The RR meter is a computerized projection of how far you should be able to go based on the energy used over the previous 15 miles - You can't 'fudge' it to 96 miles, but if you lived in the valley and you drove to the top of a hill where you had 15 miles of downhill driving to get to there you're go...

Re: Traction battery going bad or something else?

It's only been a short time that we end users have had a way to measure capacity. I think most who have measured replacement packs are reporting 44 or 45 Ah - Who knows what the supposed 50 Ah packs actually measured when they were brand new? I would *assume* that replacement packs are put together ...

Re: Larger capacity battery replacement (20+kwh?!?)

He's stretching the truth just a bit here and there, methinks ;) First , "Regularly gets between 86 to 110 miles per charge" is a bit of a stretch - You would have to drive very conservatively and quite slowly. I have never seen a documented 110 miles, but it may be possible . . . . if you...

LRR's vs Ultra High Performance Summer Tires

Motor Trend got a Chevy Bolt for a long term test and one of the first things they noticed was lots of tire squeal and understeering when pressed hard in the corners - Sound familiar?? Since they were going to have the car for a year, somebody talked them into putting a set of summer tires on in pla...

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

My warning light comes on when it gets really cold. I don't think I got a nitrogen fill the last time I had tires put on. The light's never come on before this set of tires, and yes, I've checked the pressure (all above 36 PSI at 50 F). Same thing happened to us over the weekend. TPMS light is on m...

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

I don't know . . . . but I would bet you that it varies some from location to location - Not all dealers are equally (in)efficient :lol: It appears at least you were easily able to get your car to a dealer who can fix it - That's a 110 mile trip for me. Thankfully, Mitsubishi has paid to have them t...

Re: Not Charging. Main Inverter Fuse blown

What I really want to know is, what went wrong with the current one? I bet it's actually nothing expensive to fix at all, but it's much easier for them to simply force you to replace the whole unit, rather than actually have someone on staff who is trained to truly troubleshoot these things and rep...
