Cargo net / cover?

Two things I'm missing from my Prius: the cargo net, and the cargo cover. I saw where I can buy a cargo net for the i-MiEV (e.g., http://www.mitsupartsworld.com/mitsubishi-i-miev-accessories-exterior/266-mitsubishi-i-miev-cargo-net-bungee-accessories.html ), but there are no attachment points in the...

Insurance hassles

I'd been with Progressive since 2002, covering three different cars. When I went to replace the Prius with the i-MiEV on their web site, at first it seemed painless -- but then, instead of the expected new premium, I saw "Requires special processing". Huh? Was this the first i-MiEV they'd ...

In my driveway. Doesn't show the "lean", though. :)

Re: Leaning

Well, I got another look through the open garage door, at the front, and -- it looked like it was leaning the other way (i.e. towards the passenger side, which was now the left, from my perspective). So, I'm going to put that down to optical illusion, due to the sloping roof. I'm guessing just the h...

Re: Leaning

OK, I backed it in, and I measured it forwards and backwards in the garage and on the driveway. I'm not sure I can still confirm it visually (what with the sloping roof of the garage and the lack of room behind the car when it's backed in), but the measurements were consistent (25.5" left, 26&q...

Re: Leaning

I see it wherever I park. I'm pretty sure my garage floor is level, but, I haven't actually tried backing it in there. I'll try that... Meanwhile, I think I can quantify it now. I took a tape measure from the ground, through the center of the wheel, to the fender. Left rear: 25.5". Right rear: ...

Leaning

I didn't notice this at first, but, looking at my parked car from the back, the left (driver's) side seems slightly lower than the right -- maybe by an inch or two. My first thought was the tires, but they're all original and they all read a nominal 36 PSI. Is this something I should be concerned ab...

It doesn't sound like it's Nissan, it's just that one guy. Not even a consistent policy within the dealership.
