Re: Let the Hacking Begin

On our second trip to look at the "i", we took my wife's bicycle - she's an avid cyclist and, since this car is for her, carrying the bike inside was a non-negotiable prerequisite. It's a full-size bicycle and with the front wheel off it fit just fine with the back seats down. Didn't try t...

Re: Wait for the Gen 2 Mitsubishi i?

The reason I chose the iMiEV over the Leaf is simply that it is smaller and more efficient than the Leaf. I don't dare wait, as the next versions will undoubtedly be larger. As it is, Mitsubishi caved in to the belief that all Americans are fat and widened the iMiEV especially for us - dang, at leas...

Re: The Geek Squad Charger Installation

My own Geek Squad experience has been somewhat frustrating. First off, it took many many phone calls to the Geek Squad before I could be put in touch with the appropriate group... usually I'd get transferred to someone trying to figure out which Mitsubishi TV I was talking about, ending by telling m...

Re: setting the clock display

Sorry, can't help. Ever since I missed a flight in London thinking that 11:00P stood for PM I've been happily using the 24-hr clock wherever possible.

Re: Better charging controls

jjlink, thank you very much for this timer suggestion - I've been looking for something like this 240v unit. In reading their manual, it looks as though their countdown feature seems to turn something ON instead of OFF at the end of the countdown.

Re: Better charging controls

MtnViewMark, thanks for posting. Sounds like another gadget not completely thought-through. Never want to turn something on only to have it turn off soon thereafter. Since the iMiEV (can't bring myself to calling it the "i") 120v EVSE limits the current to only 8A, I would imagine that per...

Re: Wraps

I rather like the iWoody wrap (having spent my teenage years in SoCal), especially as up close it looks like circuit-board traces (having a career in SiliconValley). Suspect that with time it will deteriorate. How hard is it to remove a modern wrap? How about something small and simple, like eyebrow...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

MtnViewMark: congratulations! When did you place your reservation, how long did it take for GeekSquad/Mr. Electric to 'inspect' your power source adequacy, and did you have a Level 2 EVSE installed? RickMaz: when you gently start applying the brakes, is there any modulation of the regen, or is regen...

Re: Warranty details & maint on the Mitsubishi i are now onl

I love this one: in 20 years, change the motor coolant and heater fluid! Being the original owner of my still-driveable 1967 Saab, I often wonder how the $50 lifetime engine warranty (which I didn't buy) would fare today. :lol: (note that Saab declared bankruptcy a few days ago and is throwing in th...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

RickMaz, thanks for the update. Interesting, as we're at the very beginnings of trying to correlate the anxiety meter (um, miles-remaining meter) with the fuel gauge. Ignoring the fuel gauge and simply looking at the miles remaining, it says you recovered 11 of the 12 (14?) miles you drove. On the o...
