Why not leave the owner's manuals in the car?

Wonder who the a55hole is that is selling all the miev owner's manuals on ebay--looks like someone takes them out and sell the cars, then turn around and sell the manuals back to the duped buyers? Scumbag...

Re: DIY 220VAC outlet.

...I want to connect it to 220VAC cable that goes from the car's charging port for the charger. Can I do it without disturbances of the communication between the charger and the charging cable? You could easily add such a cable, but it seems to me that it would only have power when the EVSE has ene...

Re: Recall: AIR BAGS:FRONTAL:SENSOR/CONTROL MODULE

Howdy Ed,

Did they drain your battery pack down to turtle to do the motor controller job?

My air bag recall letter said that it would take about 1.2 hours for that portion.

Re: How many years / miles can we expect battery failure?

From the article about the new cells: These new cells retain 80 % of the initial capacity after 5,500 charge/discharge cycles (100 % DOD @ 25°C). When buying a used C-Zero or iOn, go for the 14,5 kWh battery, the new cells are superior to the old ones used in the previous 16 kWh battery. And since t...

Re: Charging paused

Well i didn't know about this 'feature' either, but now i wonder if this is what is causing my Blink L2 to turn off or fail to charge the car during the scheduled late-night charging. It's happened twice that i go out to the car to leave in the morning and find the car doesn't have enough in the 'ta...

Re: Motor Control Unit Recall

They called and said the parts were in. i've looked at the manual and can't find anything about needing to drain the pack to turtle before doing this procedure, but that is what they told me would need to be done. So i'm only going to charge enough to get it there. The parts sheet indicated that the...

Re: 2012 w/ 18,000 miles - Newbie Question

Totally different if buying from a friend--then you are trying to make a deal where both sides feel good about it. You can pay a little more for the confidence of knowing the owner took good care of it, getting a charger thrown in the deal, etc. The lease return cars are an unknown item and you have...

Re: 2012 w/ 18,000 miles - Newbie Question

i only have about 21k miles on my 2012, but i got it used earlier this year for $7600 and bought a used level 2 for $300. Runs great 40-50 miles a day, no headaches just fun to drive. The 2012 models had a list price of about $35k, but the 2016 models list for about $23k, and you get to deduct up to...
