Re: Where do you put the carpool lane stickers on a i-miev?

FWIW, here's where I put mine: Ok, it's done. I ended up putting mine in the same place. It seem to make the most sense. I kind of like them since they tell everyone it's an electric vehicle (or at least an alternative fuel vehicle). I'm still going to put some kind of "electric vehicle" ...

That was a good idea looking through the want ads. All three look fine to me but maybe I'll go with the first one.

Where do you put the carpool lane stickers on a i-miev?

I came home to find that my California carpool lane stickers have arrived in the mail! Hurrah! I opened them up and wow, these things are big. I thought they were about 4 inches long but no, they're 7 inches long by 3.5 inches high at the widest and I'm supposed to place these behind the rear wheel ...

Re: iMiev.. my biggest mistake ever

Plankton, What happened to the compressor? Keep in mind that these systems have a low pressure cutout switch that will keep your ac system from running if it's low on R-134A refrigerant. If there's no other obvious damage like leaks or odd sounds, etc. I would want to make sure it's not this. Also, ...

Re: Additional pack

I'm pretty sure you can parallel just about any auxillary battery pack to any main battery pack. The only thing that matters is you have to use the same pack voltage. It doesn't even have to be the same size (ie. battery amphours) or even battery chemsitry (at least within the lithium family). I hav...

Re: Alignment funny

What does it say on the repair summary? It said "customer requests wheel alignment" and the final receipt says "wheel alignment" and $99. Not too much info there. I tried to get the service manager to tell me some more but there were 2 more customers he was helping. Overall I'm ...

Re: Alignment funny

My "i" just happens to be at Mitsubishi dealer right now for a wheel alignment. Probably the first one it's had since new with only 3500 miles on it. What happened is I took it in to have the air bag light loooked at and I asked them to check the steering since it feels loose to me on the...

Re: How to tell if used iMiEV has Cold Weather Package?

You should be able to go to your local Mitsubishi dealer with a vin number and they could look it up for you.
