Re: High Mileage - 2014 Miev - Level 3 winter battery charging time

Yes ,I agree It looks like the battery has really held up well Looks great. :D Do you know of any other imiev's that have covered this type of distance? How many times have you charged using level 3? I have counted I've used Chademo 30 times in 6000 miles, but usually only to top up. (162kwh in 30 ...

Re: Who says the i-miev is cheap to operate?

Lol. I found the rear blade on Walmart.com for 3.68. There was no shipping charge when you do an in store pick-up... so I drove into the pickup zone and they brought it out to me... but they did not install it :lol: Welcome to the forum, CLEiMiev, $3.68 is good. I paid 10 GBP for my front wiper bla...

Re: EU i-MiEV Clones (iOn C-Zero) - Cheap Front Wiper Blade

Hi, I'll update this thread in 12 months (or sooner if it doesn't last that long!). MW Hi Martin, Do you have any updates? I noticed that you haven't posted for over 2 years, Do you still have the car? I looked up the MOT and notice it expired at the end of 2017. It is the same age as my car so I'd...

Re: Replacement 'Ignition' Key

My problem is my car is at vacation home on an island in the Caribbean. No Mitsubishi dealer there. Bought a blank "chipped" key off Ebay and tried to get it cut. No go. Island locksmith says he can't do it. Texas locksmith says he won't do it. Mitsubishi dealer says "you have to bri...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Although I am disappointed that Mitsubishi discontinued distributing this car in the United States, I remain hopeful that under the umbrella of the Nissan/...

Re: Shifter Problem & Warning Lights

That salt has a lot to answer for! :x I had meant to have a look at the shifter at the weekend and jack the car up so I could see underneath and give it a good clean, but never got round to it. :roll: Today, I start the car and move it and the same problem happened but it was when going from reverse...

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

Your warning light experience sounds familiar to the problem I had. Keep in mind that my Miev is a 2014 North American edition.. Did you watch the video recordings of my problem from my posting that you linked to above? How does it compare to your problem? Thanks I did. I found your original post t...

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

Thanks for all the info, guys. It seems to be a little bit better and less grabby after trying to use the brakes a bit. =============== EDIT====================== updated - I think the problem described below is the same one sandange was having with his shifter: http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.ph...
