Re: My BIG adventure this past weekend.

What route did you take between Madison and Rockford? I've wanted to go out of town with mine, and the farmers market in Madison is a nice destination. But I've been hesitant about taking I-90.

Re: Any I Witnesses?

I've seen the other Imiev here in Rockford ONCE...but that's it.... Today I saw another I-MiEV being driven for the first time. It also happened in Rockford and was a white with blue model. It appears the owner had it brought up from Texas when moving. So it would appear there are three in Rockford...

Re: Illinois State Rebate Check

For the rebate, it has been a while, but I do believe you need to wait for the plates to arrive. The checks are issued twice a year. I think June might be one of the file-by dates. My I-MiEV came from McHenry, about 45 miles away. I was able to drive home from the dealer. The plates are $35 for two ...

Re: Use of public chargers by PHEVs vs. BEVs

From my own personal experience, I have grown to loathe Volts, mainly due to one recurring issue. In my city (Elgin, IL) there is only one public charging station. It is owned/operated by the city but is sponsored by a local business. There is no charge to use this public charging station. It is lo...

Re: Illinois State Rebate Check

Robb, did you get standard plates or EL plates? If EL, what number did you get? I have 373.

Illinois State Rebate Check

It finally arrived! I received my '10% of purchase price' IL state rebate! I bought my car 11 months ago and submitted the paperwork once the license plates arrived. The state only issues checks twice a year. I was really hoping to have the check by March. A couple weeks ago I emailed the manager of...

Re: iMiEV Acceleration Times

Does anyone have any acceleration numbers for our 2012 iMiEV (North American version), not just zero-60 but also transition intervals such as when passing other cars? While we're at it, how about lateral acceleration? I used an app on my Motorola Droid X that is called CAR PERFORMANCE . It is free ...

Re: WHAT CAN I DO TO INCREASE SALES OF THE CAR?

Hi Don, I agree. I do think also, that if Mitsubishi were to do like Tesla has, and provide recharge stations and give imiev owners power for free, like Tesla has for Tesla owners, that would be a big incentive, sort of like buy a Toyota Pirus, and we will pay for your fuel for the warranty period ...

Re: Critical Dash Improvements

I would be in favor of seeing the dash display become a screen like a tablet or smart phone. The advantage would be allowing the user to customize which information gets displayed. Having a few "default" screens would be good for those who don't wish to spend the time customizing in additi...

Oil & Filter Service

A letter was sent to me from my dealer. According to their service files, my 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV may be due for Oil & Filter Service ! The service, with Tire Rotation is only $49.95. It's so tempting to call and schedule an appointment just to see if they figure it out. Should I get them to v...
