Re: FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

Received letters for both of my California i-MiEVs, which , relatively speaking, haven't seen much rain.

Re: My least favorite feature

...If my memory serves me correctly some early adapters were able to move the seat slides further back. Someone was trying to get enough of us to subscribe to contract with an outfit that fabricated seat support extensions. Unfortunately, not enough of us signed up and the deal fell through. At 6' ...

Re: My least favorite feature

My least-favorite feature are the visibility-obscuring headrests. Unless I have passengers I always remove them, but do leave the driver's headrest in place. The front passenger headrest fits very nicely on the seat with the prongs poking under the backrest and can be reinstalled in seconds.

Re: Checking over a iMiev what do I look for.

Hi Mily, Welcome to the forum. For starters, you might have a look at this older thread, primarily applicable to North American i-MiEVs - http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2435 Here's the EU/UK thread - http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1926 BTW you posted twice on the ...

Re: My least favorite feature

The "low temperature" chime. Every time it goes off (for the first time in a while), I'm like "Ack! What's wrong with the car?" before I realize "Oh, it's cold outside. Thanks, I knew that." As someone who lives in a generally-mild climate I welcome the rare (to me) &q...

Re: Warning Codes - Car with ! Exclamation Mark

Lena, welcome to the forum. In addition to a genuine Mitsubishi dedicated computer and software called MUT3 which is expensive and not readily available, there are a number of alternatives available. I purchased something called "iCarsoft Mitsubishi/Mazda i909 Multi-System Scanner OBDII Vehicle...

Re: Older Leaf driving impression (good value)

Don't know about you guys, but there's something comforting about hearing that contactor click in the EVSE after depressing the J1772 button and before withdrawing that connector. :geek: :roll: Leaf question: are those bars on the Leaf display a good enough indicator of capacity, or should one get L...

Re: Older Leaf driving impression (good value)

Thanks for the input. A neighbor is looking for a first car for her teenage son and I had just suggested a newer (2015+) Leaf with supposedly better batteries. Back in 2011, the primary reason I did not buy the Leaf is the wimpy regen - this, as I was driving a hacked Gen1 Insight with great fingert...

Re: 12V battery and heated seat cover

All sorted, thanks everyone! My dad came and helped me fit the new battery, we used some jumper leads to keep either the old or the new battery connected to the car throughout so didn't need a radio code thankfully. I have since been enjoying a luxuriously warm bum, and will appreciate not having t...
