Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

I think the 25% and 50% is probably a miscalculation on his part - Lord knows, there have already been plenty of those in this thread . . . . what's one more?

Re: Trouble locating replacement windshield

We contacted a local glass repair shop, but they have contacted 4 different Mitsubishi dealerships and none of them are willing to ship the windshield. The repair shop said they've never had a dealer refuse shipment, let alone 4 dealerships. I would contact a better, more capable glass shop - One w...

Re: Car Insurance and Breakdown Cover

It appears 'breakdown cover' isn't what I thought it was at all "Basic cover. It typically means your car will be fixed at the roadside or towed to a local garage. But it won't usually cover you if you breakdown close to your home." Worst scenario, this just pays to tow your car to the sho...

Re: MOAR HALP

I've got 4 bars left at an estimated 22 miles, and I drove just a hair over 45 miles. Peak speed hit was 50 miles per hour downhill. Average speed 30 miles per hour I agree with Joe - That sounds pretty normal to me 22 RR with 4 bars equates to 44 miles for 8 bars (half tank) and therefore, 88 mile...

Re: 12 Volt battery is failing, I'm looking for replacement

Any AGM advertised as being a replacement for a '90 to '97 Miata (they all came from the factory with an AGM mounted in the trunk) is a good replacement for our cars and you can usually find one for about $100, many times with free shipping. The AGM is a little shorter than our battery, but if you c...

Re: Has anyone car dolly towed i-MiEV?

You would have to tow it with the rear wheels on the dolly, which presents some problems. The steering wheel won't lock in the center position, so you'd have to leave the key in it and tie the wheel straight somehow. With the rear end up on the dolly, extra weight is put on the tiny front tires and ...

Not heated and not tilt/telescoping either, though I do read all kinds of 'For Sale' ads where they claim it is :lol:

Re: Comparative Energy Efficiency

If anything the Ioniq makes me hopeful that we might see more affordable EV's with real usable range and capability going forward. IMO, 65 miles * is * a 'real usable range' as it does at least 90 or 95% of what we need a vehicle to do - I suspect we'll still own an ICE for the forseeable future fo...

Re: Hi from new owner of an old car

The basic argument is that if the battery fails to live up to its published specifications by some degree, then you have abnormal degradation. For warranty purposes, what 'degree' would be considered 'abnormal'? Hard to press for any replacement unless there's a definitive 'line' and you have proof...
