Re: Marketing the USED I-MIEV

I do agree they didn't hold their value well - We paid US $30K for our first one in May of 2012, an SE but with none of the options your car has and then 2 years later, we bought a fully loaded, like new SE Premium like yours for $8,700 when it came off lease . . . . and it only had 3,900 miles on i...

Re: Any tips to damaging the main battery?

Well i have a dumb idea--just let the car sit unused with a drained pack for a few months. It looks to me that the 12 Cell Monitoring Unit boards inside the pack are constantly powered up using some of the cells in the module to which they are attached. Over a period of time those cells will be pul...

Re: Any tips to damaging the main battery?

If you do your best to destroy it, I predict it will die a couple weeks after your warranty expires! :lol:

Re: WTB - Stuff. Charger, Wheels, & More

There are a couple of the OEM double din radio surround panels on eBay - A used one for $210.00, a brand new one for $222.00. There are also a couple new, aftermarket ones, but they are upwards of $300 with shipping

Re: 1,193 mile i-Miev trip finished!

+1 - We've never charged anywhere but home. We bought the Volt for longer trips, but we haven't taken many lately. I do admire your planning skills that enable you to use the little car for long trips - Not sure it would work out so well for me . . . .

Re: help with used purchase

Here's a used SE Premium with all the bells and whistles, 20,000 miles $6,500 from a private seller - You never know, he might take $6K for it. Quite a ways from you, but if you have a way to get it home . . . . . .

Re: help with used purchase

Actually, the ES trim is the cheapest trim model of the three - No DRL/Fog Lights, no alloy wheels (steel wheels with plastic hubcaps) cheaper upholstery and a lesser stereo. However, some ES models did come with DCQC and none of the standard SE's did. The most desirable model of all is the SE Premi...

Re: help with used purchase

Indeed, I have much more confidence with the iMiEV battery at this age than a 2012 LEAF. I'd shoot for $5k or less on the MiEV if it has CHAdeMO . . . . . The car he's looking at is a standard SE - No ChaDeMo. He says they won't be charging it at home, so a missing remote control won't affect him a...

Re: help with used purchase

I read the warranties on Mitzies are for failure only, and not degradation level (8 bars like on Leaf), is this correct? KS can get real hot, but not for months on end. My concern would be crazy cold snap, which happens now and then. Is the battery heated below zero or negative F degrees to keep it...
