Re: U1r battery replacement

It looks like a perfect fit for the battery tray. The battery terminal connections look interesting but then there's no big power draw to start an engine or anything anyway. I bet it works fine and, heck, $25 is a great price too.

Re: 2012 I-Miev available in the Bay Area

I am debating the same discussion, as there are now 5 EVs in my drive way. My 2014 iMiev has around 25kmiles. My plan is to get all the recalls done this week, then put it on non-op then eventually configure the pack as a house battery for outage back-up and base load shifting. I just cringe each t...

Re: 2012 I-Miev available in the Bay Area

Seconded. If you have a new driver up and coming in the family, hold onto it if you can. It doesn't go fast, doesn't go far, and it is so easy to drive that it's a perfect learning car. Besides, they'll never ask for gas money ;) , while simultaneously learning how to be responsible by not running ...

Re: 2012 I-Miev available in the Bay Area

For a 2012 in decent shape with only 22K on it that you're having trouble giving away for $4K, I would be finding any excuse I could to just keep it. He'll be 16 before you know it and you'll be out shopping for another car if you let this one go Don In CA here he can get a learner's permit at 15-1...

Re: 2012 I-Miev available in the Bay Area

I'm just letting you folks here know that I just lowered my price a smidge to $4.2k. I had one person that was interested for a couple days, then... But I've also come to realize that this is an 9 year old car and there have been big advances in new electric cars out there. I guess I was hoping that...

2012 I-Miev available in the Bay Area

I guess this was inevitable. I now have 3 electric cars so I have to make room by selling one. It's a Labrador black 2012 with quick charge and 22,500 miles. It's in good shape with a couple minor shopping cart dings you would expect for a nine year old car. I'm asking $5k obo. https://sfbay.craigsl...

Re: Anyone Here Like the 2021 Bolt?

Congrats! Yes, the one-pedal driving is all motor. The only brake that engages automatically is the parking brake if you slowly keep rolling forward with no feet on the pedals on a slight downgrade. It’s noticeable when that happens, and simply pressing the throttle pedal disengages it. Thanks. I'm...

Re: Anyone Here Like the 2021 Bolt?

I should mention that they're discounted from $12k to 19k right now depending on if you're a "loyal Chevy customer" or a Costco Member ($3K off) or if you're in CA, $1500 from Carb and another $2k from the state in CA if the funds are still available. No $7,500 from the Feds right now sinc...

Re: Anyone Here Like the 2021 Bolt?

Well I did it. I bought the 2021 Premier in cayenne orange with the fast charge port, comfort package (heated seats front and back, heated steering wheel and mirrors) and the driver confidence package II. It sure is nice. It has a video rear view camera with a somewhat wide angle lens on it for a go...

Re: Going to be selling 2012 i-MiEV SE w/CHAdeMO

I haven't sold one as we tend to only buy them and keep 2 or 3 of them around. :lol: All kidding aside, I would say a private sale for a 2012 starts at around $5,000 and goes up from there. Yours with a new battery at 35K miles and being an SE model should start higher but at where could depend on a...
