Re: What tire would you recommend?

I bought four YOKOHAMA ICEGUARD IG20 tires from tirerack for a total (with tax) of $240. Then Yokohama turned around and mailed me a $60 VISA debit card. I had a local shop put them on for $80 two weeks ago. They look like great tires for the winter here. They have been driving quiet. Some mileage ...

Re: Battery Replacement - Lessons Learned

Hello, I own Mitsubishi I-Miev 2012 16 KW. 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 a...

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Hi PV1. You wrote... "...cabin heater in the i-MiEV runs directly off the main battery, ..." I ,m confident you know more about the MiEV traits that I do. And I’m curious about that statement: If I remember right the main panel ready and set a very high voltage. Something like 330 V. I'd f...

Re: Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

Unfortunately, this easy key owner DIY programming of a third key (when you have two good keys) does not work on all cars. AFAIK won't work on my 2015 Forester. Glad it worked on your Volt.

Re: Power the house with MiEV battery?

Yeah Don, I agree that using the MiEV as a whole house power supply isn't great idea. Let alone use it in a manner to drain it dead empty. As you imply, during a zombie apocalypse it would be far better to keep the EV fully charged for transportation at a time when gasoline might be unavailable for ...

Re: Annual inspection and "required" maintainence?

Hi Sisal47. Love and appreciate your comprehensive overview of prudent maintenance for our MiEVs. A couple of thoughts, and at least one question: "...Anyone who owns an I-MiEV should also have the CANION program to monitor the battery pack." That CANION program has been mentioned before. ...

Why and how to get and program a third key :idea:

Couple of years ago I lost one of my two original keys for my 2012. Long story short.... It cost a great deal of money and time to have the dealer replace and program a replacement key. Probably close to $400. I did go to local locksmiths who claimed they could do it for less first, but they were un...
