over four months at dealer ( Cutter Mitsubishi in Aiea , Hawaii ) and still no IMEV! Worst mistake ever, buying that IMEV! What can I do, dealer can't or won't fix it!?

These are the threads I am following on the subject


There are conflicting reports of whether a second hand charger from a wrecked car will work.
Ours has been 4 months at a dealer in Australia too, but at least they are saying they will fix it for free....eventually.

Boscoe, since it's a lot of material to wade through, I'll add here that I replaced my failed charger with one from a wreck. Less than $400 and a couple hours of labor. Operates like new without any issues.
