>Hey James, I saw your car on Car Gurus. I got a few questions if you do not mind.
>1. So how did that dent in the door by the handle happen?
long story but MiEV was parked at my old barn and a trailer (untethered) slowly rolled into it (as I watched in horror)
> Is the paint affected?
yes, lost paint in the deep portions (I have touched up)
> Is it deep?
Steel is punctured in one spot, a thin ~1" long cut (I can upload closer shot if needed)
> Does the handle still work? Will the door lock? Does the window still go up and down?
Yes everything is fully functional
>2 Being a Chicago car, how is the rust?
Car has always been in Illinois (2 yr lease was central IL), my 4 years has always been garage kept, rust is actually not bad at all (I am talking under carriage, body has zero rust) but this is coming from a Midwesterner (I work from home so it doesn't really get out much, ~12k last 4 years)
>3. I see you have the remote, do you also have both keys?
>4. 12V battery is going, but what about the HV battery condition?
12v is original so I trickle charge it since I don't drive much, main battery still gives me full range and I easily can get guess-o-meter to 80+ in mild weather. My OBDII only works with OBDZero and I can share a screenshot of that but caniOn150 does not appear to work with my reader
>5. How many miles on the new tires up front?
I put on the recommended Dunlap Enasave's right after acquisition (fall 2015) so about 12k (I can send pix if you like) I also have one of the originals which is in good shape as backup (I replaced mainly because one had a lot of side wall damage and I kept the good one)
>Thanks much, Matt
