Took My First Long Range Trip

I took my first long range trip this week. What I mean by long range is that I had to charge somewhere other than my house to get home. I started out at work fully charged in Oakland, CA and drove to Mill Valley to my parents house which is a 30 mile trip and 450 feet above sea level. I had about a ...

Re: Just bought a used 2012 imiev - These are great!

Wow, thanks Don! I was able to log in and find a wealth of information. For instance, I found out this car came from Normal, Illinois which confirmed that this car came from the snow country as I suspected. The options that came with this car was the "cold weather package" with battery hea...

Your airbag light is most likely due to a faulty impact sensor. Or maybe just a drained 12V battery. I checked the battery and it's just over 13 volts after sitting a while unplugged. The battery has a tag that says it was replaced in 2013 and the car was in "inventory". I'm guessing that...

It won't hurt to check the 12V battery voltage. I may just take a meter to the garage. 8-)

Thanks Joe! I just downloaded the Plugshare app last weekend and found a plug nearby for 15 cents per kwh. I just had to go out and try it!

Just bought a used 2012 imiev - These are great!

I just bought a used 2012 imiev ES in silver and I love it! It's a lot of fun to drive around, especially in the city (easy to park, etc.). It only has 2100 miles on it so it's like new and the price was great too. Usually I like to get all the options I can so I don't have to add things later but, ...
