Well, we did it! We are now proud owners of a 2012 white with blue PREMIUM with 31K miles. You know, the one with Mitsubishi I-mieV written out on the bottom of the door panels. Re-charged here at home overnight what we had used during the test drive. Daughter gets free J charging at university!
Probs paid more than many on here buying used ($5740), but the towing distance wasn't too far (170 miles), purchased from a Mitsu dealer. (ALL EVs within drivable distance of this smack dab center of the country market are over-priced because Kansas City is more power plugged than any US city, yet we didn't get the new market availability like the coasts.) Dealer actually had a raspberry ES that I was going to make an offer on as well, but they sold it Thursday night, ugh.
And yes, the dealer wasn't aware, nor did I inform, that this is a Premium. Only thing quite weird is there is NO seat heater, just a never holed out place in dash where toggle switch would have been. Since we have the remote, not too concerned, though. Guess one could always get an aftermarket 12V pad, although I would be afraid daughter would just run down her battery by leaving it on?!
She's a beauty, so fun to drive!! In the 9 mile trip home from dropping off auto trailer, only used 3 miles on the RR, because of downhill regen coasting and braking!!
Came with everything (INCLUDING THE REMOTE) except one missing key, so only one. So that's the next challenge, although I like the idea of door keys for all and keeping the chipped key under the floor mat ?!?
Thanks for everyone who has chimed in and given me so much good knowledge and advice about this awesome car, thus far!!
