1) I should never leave the car plugged in except when charging.
2) I should never leave the car sit for two weeks with a full charge.
3) I should only charge the car before a trip. Sort of like driving a steam car without a flash boiler.
I can't find that discussion anywhere - You've only made 8 posts and I searched them all and didn't find where anyone here told you
battery failed . . . .
Specifically, who said to never leave it plugged in except while charging? - Lord knows what that could have to do with a battery failure
I would bet that probably 50% of the iMiEV's on the road today have violated all 3 of those 'rules' many times without a single battery failure - I myself have done #1 and #3 many, many times over the past 2 1/2 years and not experienced any problems
It disturbs me greatly that someone gave you those 3 as a possible reason why your car needed a new pack . . . . especially since your car only had a couple thousand miles on it
