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...

When you get 'Zamboni-ed' at the charging station, you've truly been Iced! :lol:

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...

Re: help with used purchase

IMO, the price on both is a bit high - Really high for the Leaf Yes, the Mitsu uses standard J-1772 charge ports. The one you're looking at is a standard SE model - Comes with alloy wheels, DRL lights, Fog lights and an ungraded radio with USB port which the base models don't have The Leaf is FWD an...

Re: A New Tire For Us!

I think you get what you pay for when you buy winter tires for everyday use, Yeah, but at a quarter of the price of an OEM tire I'm willing to make some sacrifices. :roll: We'll have to agree to disagree there, Joe. I'm as much a miser as most people on most things . . . . love to save a buck almos...

Re: A New Tire For Us!

Under $42 per tire after rebate, not bad. I hope they are decent tires. If you read the reviews, people seem to like them in the snow, but not so much in the rain or dry. Loud, don't wear well, increased stopping distances, little traction wet or dry - A couple reviewers couldn't wait to get rid of...
