Re: Battery Failure?

Well, I got the car back today :D :D :D :D Late yesterday afternoon, another plot twist- the dealer decided after talking with MMNA to flatbed the car back so I didn't have to drive it 80 miles home, very nice. After the dealer's testing, when it got to me it had 15 bars and 75 miles RR. I plan to ...

Re: i-MiEV and Renewable Energy

I don't see the upside to leasing...if you were to sell your home prior to the lease running out, you'd be liable to pay them the remainder of the lease . . . . At the end of the lease, you either extend it or they remove the panels - You never wind up owning anything. Don I'm currently looking int...

Re: Battery Failure?

I think my i-MiEV has experienced (or is in the midst of experiencing) cell failure(s) in my traction pack. Symptoms very similar to what tonymil experienced in this thread: http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1567 Rich, your battery degraded much more quickly than mine. I was able to ...

Navigation

I hope someday Mitsubishi will adopt Nokia's Navigation system. I used to own a Nokia phone and it had the best navigation program I have ever used. According to this article, the latest software is available for Microsoft smartphones and will one day be available for iphones and android phones. htt...

Re: ANY reports of really expensive repairs problems with Mi

So this was my charge status this morning. Whew!!! First full charge in over two months!! What a relief.

JoeS, I agree, this was a poor choice for me to post this in. Feel free to move me!

Re: ANY reports of really expensive repairs problems with Mi

I finally have my car back! I picked it up this morning fully charged and with a surprising 87 miles Range Remaining showing on the meter. I can't tell you how good it felt to see a number that high, I had been struggling to get RR's in the high 50's. I didn't receive any paperwork with the car but ...

Re: ANY reports of really expensive repairs problems with Mi

Just called the dealer, they have removed the old one but haven't installed the new yet, plus they expect to do a calibration which takes 1/2 a day so I'll get my car tomorrow at the earliest. I thought they were being optimistic when they told me last night that it would be ready today. :| At least...

Re: ANY reports of really expensive repairs problems with Mi

When I dropped my car off yesterday, the technician let me see everything that Mitsu shipped with the battery. Here are a couple of pics: http://i.imgur.com/6OK4ERS.jpg http://i.imgur.com/kLR3fzC.jpg Mitsu shipped a lift, a cart, a black plastic container, numerous boxes, and that huge white metal c...
