Re: 12 Volt Source Behind Glovebox??

Picking up from the fuse box by tapping into an existing fuse is always preferable to cutting a loom wire in my opinion. Another option would be to tap into the post-loom part of the stereo power - though some newer head units have a USB or other power tap straight from the back of the unit - worth ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I would love a M3, but would have to be only once they are in full swing production wise - im sure they will get there. Didn't the same shindig happen with the early Model S cars... faults reported, then they sorted it all out? Even the first Leaf's were not great. I tend to go for cars towards the ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Tesla 3 teardown: Some of the comments about build quality are worrisome to me. Clearly, this car remains stuck somewhere between pre-production and mass production still. I suspect that when Tesla has cleared the backlog of pre-orders from the poor souls that get the first wave, they will produce ...

Re: An iMiev for my wife

Ouch, I misread the mileage: I thought it said 11,000km not 110,000km. :o With this mileage I would indeed go to the trouble of verifying battery capacity and do a much more serious examination of the car than if it had 11,000km! Also, I would negotiate that price down, as that is serious mileage i...

Re: An iMiev for my wife

The only thing I would add to this, is that yes the battery issue is not a problem as long as the Canadian warranty is the same as the US one, though note that this is a light car with narrow wheels, so I would just be checking the general condition items found on any car - seats, tyre wear, crash d...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Hi Jray. Car has been used almost every day but it has been quite rainy of late. UPDATE: Just noticed this post from years ago on a Nissan Leaf forum - http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?p=176176#p176190 Seems that some people have experienced similar problems on the leaf and that it was sof...

Re: Rarer than a Mirai!

Quite amazing that 300 Miraie a month have been sold, and this would be high on my wish list.

Re: terms of baterry warranty

My 2012 UK IMIEV came with a 4 year traction battery warranty, and unless this has changed (which would be news to me as I enquired last April), then there is no 10 year traction battery warranty by Mitsubishi in Europe... or if it does exist, it's not all EU markets. It is North America that gets t...

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

All those tax breaks don't come free... congestion tax? Why so many people? Maybe if the UK leaves the Euro and the rest of the countries in Europe follow suit there wouldn't be a need forcing people to go electric through taxation. The current technology should not be forced on anyone. The battery...

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

^ Re the PHEV fail: If you live in a country that actually has a progressive taxation system to promote green vehicles, I would say his argument might be quite different. That PHEVs and BEVs get decent government grants, annual personal tax and annual business tax relief makes the PHEV pay for itsel...
