Re: CHAdeMO or no CHAdeMO question

Welcome to the forum! - Glad you found us :) True, all NA iMiEV's have the charge doors on both sides. QC was an option on ES models (those with the steel wheels) and if so equipped, the little lever beside the drivers seat which opens the left side charge door is a clue - If you see that little lev...

Re: Just had the passenger airbag recall work done

Count your blessings, I guess - My closest dealer who works on EV's is 120 miles (200 kms) away and the cars have to go there on a flatbed tow truck!

Re: 2012 Raspberry i-MiEV, thinking of buying this

*If* it was still eligible for the tax credit, the seller would have to be an idiot not to take the credit himself and then sell the car, which is nearly new for the $7,800 he's asking . . . . so I think it's safe to assume you couldn't get the credit As to the condition of it's battery - That would...

Re: Different versions

What's a 'triplet'?? Been here for 7 years and never heard that term before

To my knowledge, every model of the iMiEV uses the same electric motor

Re: 2012 Raspberry i-MiEV, thinking of buying this

Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us Most 2012's sell in the $4,500 to $5,500 range, depending on mileage and condition - CarMax probably paid the owner less than that when they acquired the car, but they usually mark them up substantially for resale Quick Charge was a factory option on some ES m...

Re: Aftermarket radio

Yes, there are two distinct different 12 volt sources for the radio in any modern car. There's the keep alive 12 volt source which is present all the time, even when the car is shut off. This keeps the time and other things you set on the radio from going away when you shut the car off. Then, there'...

Re: Cargo space dimensions

You don't say where you're from, but with the dimensions in millimeters, I'd hazard a guess that you're either in Canada or Europe. The North American iMiEV is a good bit larger than the Euro model, so you should probably specify which one you have. With the NA model and the seats down, I *think* yo...

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

You may be the first one on this forum to do a brake job - I drove a Supra for 135K miles, then gave it to my son and he drove it for 30K miles and it still had the factory brakes on it when he sold it . . . . and it didn't have regenerative braking - I'm counting on the iMiEV brakes being good for ...

Re: Can't Find CHAdeMO Charging Port Lever

We go to Gulfport all the time - Sam's Club is over there. No problem making it home from there though, so why spend $4 recharging??

Trips north are made in the Volt
