Re: Wanted : 2012 SE

Congrats! I was looking at that car also. I'm located in Long Island NY and almost made the 3 hr drive to go see it. I was on the dealers email list waiting for the price to drop but it never did. I've owned a 2012 imiev since new and just LOVE it! One note: The range is directly related to the spee...

Re: Shifter Back Light

No back light :( . The only info about shift lever position is in the instrument cluster to the left, opposite the battery gauge (and on the shifter of course). Not very convenient but you get use to it.

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

To pbui19:

Check out the "post type" and the orientation of the + and -.
I think it's a bit different from the OEM and may need quite a retrofit.

Good Luck,

Re: Some dude unplugged my I-miev

In St. Petersburg FL in a city parking garage we had a learning curve for charging etiquette. Most EVers there now know how to tell from the lights on the charging station if the EV plugged in is finished charging. We now have an "understanding" that if the EV is finished charging its ok t...

Re: Motor Control Unit Recall

Trailered the car in, dealer had it 3 days, did 4 recalls. Motor controller, air bag sensor, under carriage corrosion, don't remember the 4th. Charged me $260 for a new key. :shock: The car seems to get better range now. Anyone else notice that? Had the recall done about 3k miles ago. Can't say the...

Re: I-Miev got broken into with charger stolen!

I take a lock and cable and put it thru the tire rim on my plug-in Prius. Then take the power cord and put that thru the lock loop and lock it. Now the power cord is locked outside the car to the tire. I just tried the lock on my i car and it actually fits in one spoke in the rim, eliminating the ne...

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

Happened to us yesterday!! At a stop sign an SUV going in the opposite direction lowered his window and said "What happened to the other half of your car?". I was speechless! I just gave him the "EV GRIN" (and nothing else) and moved on. I then said to my wife, "I would have...
