I was just rather shocked (no pun intended) about the prices. I wish I made $111 per hour.
You missed that "Maintenance" was misspelled in the header also. There are some basic Excel computation errors in the spreadsheet too. That leads me to believe this IS something he just made up.
Honestly, I do NOT intend to follow the dealership's maintenance schedule. Maybe
have them check the battery once a year, but the rest of the maintenance I can do and intend on doing.
There should be no significant problems with the "transmission fluid" -- it's a reduction gear, not a shifting mechanism as standard transmissions are. Check the fluid levels and make sure the fluid isn't too old to protect the mechanisms.
You're absolutely right about the brakes. I have gotten better with driving the i-MiEV in "B" mode and can "feel" the brake pedal when it's in "high regeneration" versus "brakes are engaged" modes. If I keep this car after its 2-year lease, I would be surprised if the brakes are worn at all.
