I live in North County near San Diego. My vehicle stills shows 16-bars, but I'm noticing less distance for same charge. I have to make a decision soon as to replacing the battery or selling it now while I can still get something for it. So my question is after looking online for some time, does Mitsubishi offer battery replacement/upgrade and if they do is there one in San Diego/North County area? I'm hoping your reply will be quicker than spending time at Mitsubishi, they seem to know little about the electric cars they sell. The Auto-parkway dealer in Escondido had a charger put in for customers, but it has never worked as the charging company does not recognize it. Things like that make you wonder.
I'm probably missing something here (in part from jumping in so late), but aren't our battery packs covered for defects(failures other than the "allowable" 30% loss of capacity in 10(?) years 100,000 miles) .... Isn't that "defects" coverage about 8 years and 100,000 miles????
FWIW: We've got only 38,000 miles on our 2012 MiEV (purchased 2013) and seems to have lost a little range.
I used to in my style of driving my terrain feel that will a fall charge I could usually count on seeing 70 miles RR ... 75 not unusual.
These days I pretty much only count on seeing 60 -65 miles RR if I chose to fully charge.)
(By the way... I lived in north county San Diego for 35 years. Del Mar, Fallbrook, etc.)
