Re: Recommendations for new brake pads/shoes/rotors/drums?

Hi, I had to replace my front pads and rotors early last year. I ended up getting the parts from rockauto. One snag is my car is a 2012 and for 2012 rockauto doesn't list the iMiev. But they do list the 2014. I took a chance and the rotors and pads fit the 2012 perfectly. I ordered the following par...

Brakes - 2012 same as 2014?

Hi, I think it's time for me to replace the front brake pads and rotors, 5 years/75000kms. It's not that I use them very much but the rotors are rusting. I'm looking around for parts options (Canada or US online) and I was wondering if the 2014 has the same pads and rotors as the 2012. If it does th...

Re: Who has felt a rumble in the rear?

I have noticed this too. But for me it's when accelerating with alot of weight in the trunk( few hundred pounds) or 4 passengers. The extra weight is to the driveline like lowering the springs. Based on this and your (jray) "spring-lowering" test I don't think the car can handle too much v...

Re: A/C failing

Re: Wheels, Rims, and Tires (Split from "Handling")

To add a little more data to the wheels/tires thread... I have a set of winter wheels (rims + tires) that I received from the dealer. I didn't realize this until after I put them on but the rears were the wrong size, one size too small. This affected the regen quite a bit. When slowing down from spe...

Re: Press the Brake Pedal - Get More Regen

I've noticed that as well. For me it's happening after hitting a bump while braking. I have thought that is was a function of the ABS and somehow a bump translates to wheel slippage to the sensors and that turns off the regen. I have noticed the same thing with my Honda Fit, on that car the ABS will...
