Re: Anyone know whose white iMiev is in Rockford, IL?

The 'standard' SE doesn't have Nav or QC. No ES has Nav, though some of them did have the optional QC. QC was not even an option on a standard SE . . . . you could not order the car with it We have one of each - A standard SE which we bought brand new 6 years ago and an SE Premium with Nav and QC th...

Re: Skylar - Third New England winter storm for our iMiev

Ouch!

Always hurts to see nice rides sitting out in the elements - It's even worse down here when they sit out in the hot sun without a cloud in the sky

Re: Major EV Drive Components Replacement & Costs

Most electronic failures in EV's are, or will eventually be , fairly cheap and simple to fix . . . . once we get to where we're only replacing what's actually failed - The SCR, diode or chip. That day will come because a few of the 'techie types' who like to drive these rolling computers will diagno...

Re: Major EV Drive Components Replacement & Costs

When we can buy a used 2012 with 25 or 30 thousand miles on it for $5K or less, that's pretty close to 'scrap' prices, IMO - Considering a new replacement MCU plus labor to install it could run that much alone I bought a second iMiEV thinking exactly like you are thinking now - What if our first one...

But there are others out there also doing remanufactured parts.

We bought our first one new and for a few years after, the dealer we bought it from would send us postcards for 'specials' on oil & filter changes and such :lol:

Re: adding charging capacity

Assuming you only recently bought your iMiEV, might I suggest you drive it for a while before you decide you need to make a major modification - Are you charging using L2 all the time . . . . because plugging it into any 120 volt outlet isn't using all of the car's capability You may find, as many o...
