Re: 2016 i-miev about to be announced!?

That 6.6kW charger would have offered a significant distinction from its predecessors to tempt someone like me to perhaps trade in one of my i-MiEVs. As I said elsewhere, without a significant upgrade and all these used i-MiEVs now coming off lease, why buy new? What I'm disappointed in is that Mit...

If you have a decent dealer Sort of an oxymoron in my experience :roll: Plus, I don't want to be greedy . . . Good to know though. Any idea what their (dealers) standard margin is on one at current MSRP????? Aerowhatt If you're getting MSRP minus the dealer cash, don't worry about being greedy — th...

Re: lease about to run out

I spoke to Ally today while extending my lease. FYI the double rate is just Ally's standard policy for lease extension, but it sounds like they're offering the 6-month extension at the current rate on all i-MiEVs. It will be interesting to see what happens after six months pass.

Re: lease about to run out

Exactly why I didn't lease. I certainly don't regret leasing. The amount I paid is way less than the value the car has lost, so I came out on top. Fair play to those who purchased, as they get to hold onto the car and supported its concept with more fervor, and if you plan to keep the car it doesn'...

Re: lease about to run out

What is your current rate? When Ally called me last week to remind me about the termination, they offered nothing other than buying the vehicle for more than the cost of a new Leaf. Then they called yesterday offering up to six months at my current rate.

Re: lease about to run out

FYI I just got a call offering to extend my lease 6 more months at the rate I was paying ($150/month after tax). So maybe they're becoming a little less eager to see them come back.

Re: A bad cell and a reduce range

When my battery failed, there was a survey in which they asked me about my driving habits, but I got the impression it was more for the sake of tracking the cause than trying to refuse my warranty. However, maybe more batteries have been failing and they're trying to cut their losses.

Re: Survey type questions for those who leased....just curio

a. I'd never leased before, but the changing technology made me consider it and the sweetheart deal I got sealed the deal. I'm basically paying the same price I was paying for fuel and repairs on my clunky old Subaru. b. Six months remaining out of 24. c. 12,000 miles a year, but you can get 15k or ...

Re: 1 year check up

You were charged for the annual checkup? The only service I've been charged for was some paint scratches I had touched up.

Re: Mitsubishi Battery Study?

I received the request via a call from Orange Country rather than a letter.
