To wrap up the events.
I was at my patients end and investigated exchanging Blacky for a new 2014 Miev. I even looked at a Leaf .
The offered trade in value was pitiful - 1/3 that of what I paid for it .
Having gone with out the car for almost 2 months........
I decided to change the car.
The OBC (#2) was replaced.
Friday I got it back on a & drove home & charged up at home (Schneider).
By chance found a buyer who I will not name, that was ready to pay a little more than the dealer.
Saturday drove it 150 km - Charged at the mall - a public charger, drove home.
Saturday night charged up full overnight at home (Schneider)
Sunday morning met the buyer who test drove it and was willing.
Sunday night charged it (Schneider) for Mondays morning commute.
Monday morning - the car would not charge -
tests later confirmed OBC failure.
The private sale was amicable dissolved & I was loosing money once again.
After several days & intense meetings, the people at my dealership were understanding and made some consensus to make it happen,
As did I.
I had arranged to return the car with an original equipment EVSE 2012, but .............
Mitsubishi Canada head office was very aggressive and demanded I give up my upgraded EVSE without any compensation -
They would not accept a used original equipment EVSE I was offering
(My cost was $400 CAD for the upgrade at that time),
I believe they suspected the EVSE UPGRADE was the cause of the damaged OBC and wanted to send it to Japan for evaluation.
My local dealer tried to make up for some of this loss offering me some free services.
My Upgraded EVSE Evaluation
I cannot see this to be possible as I did not have any problems using it weekly for 2 years (65,00 km) &
I did not use the Upgraded EVSE during the 3 days since I had the car returned to me, - before the last OBC failure.
So now the problem has not been solved &
The dealer owns the car & the problem.
I have paid my pound of flesh & moved on to a new 2014 Miev.
I hope to hear later what the problem was.
