The dealership called me and wants to keep the MiEV and drive it for as long as it takes to replicate the issue. They put a recording device on it and have a mechanic drive it every day.
It took 71,000mi to have the event once, I just hope, that it doesn't take that many miles again.
I don't know, if I should laugh or cry.
I would say laugh, but seeing as they have 11 codes to go off, they should be more than capable of identifying the unit at fault without driving a single yard... so i'd cry.
Yet more examples of poor diagnostic processes built on flawed diagnostic algorithms. So far, Toyota are the only company that I say are actually capable of adequately diagnosing faults on their vehicles properly and quickly. Reliability and fault rectification is what I believe separates out the good manufacturers from the bad... and almost all are bad. Easy to shove a car out of a factory, but much harder to supply the technical support down the line when real-world issues occur.
