Re: I have a secret - odometer display mystery

http://www.msn.com/en-gb/cars/news/ferrari-admits-allowing-dealers-to-adjust-mileage-on-used-cars/ar-BBJHe9g?li=AAnZ9Ug&ocid=mailsignout Look, Ferrari have been sanctioning this sort of foul play for years.... looks like another scandal that's probably more widespread than we think. Still unsure...

Re: How to sabotage your own product launch...

With barely one month of US Sales to report for the Outlander PHEV and dealers clamoring for more inventory, this seems like a perfect time for Mitsubishi to announce a new and improved version for Europe, with more battery, a torquier, more efficient engine, and an upgraded interior. Oh, and don't...

Re: I have a secret - odometer display mystery

Does PA have legal recourse for tampered odometers? Well for a start, any vehicle with a 'mileage inconsistency' would be worth less than one without surely. So not only do you have the inconsistency (in the non-beneficial direction), but you also have the history issue as a result, and - what woul...

This sounds exactly like my bank account balance when I gave my wife a credit card.

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Anyway, to get back on track, I'm glad to hear that everyone is still enjoying their i-MiEV after all these years, and I'm glad to see newcomers still streaming in. After a period of zero used availability in the UK, I can see 5 for sale in the country (2 I's, 3 clones), and it would appear that va...

Re: Shifter Problem & Warning Lights

That salt has a lot to answer for! :x I had meant to have a look at the shifter at the weekend and jack the car up so I could see underneath and give it a good clean, but never got round to it. :roll: Today, I start the car and move it and the same problem happened but it was when going from revers...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

Utilitarian, simple by design, high quality, value-providing and individual. I too agree that the modern EVs are overly-laden with expensive tech, and that simplicity in this application is welcomed. Also, I cant think of a simpler car to drive. For me, the most welcomed aspects are the size and lac...

Re: 12 Volt Source Behind Glovebox??

Picking up from the fuse box by tapping into an existing fuse is always preferable to cutting a loom wire in my opinion. Another option would be to tap into the post-loom part of the stereo power - though some newer head units have a USB or other power tap straight from the back of the unit - worth ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I would love a M3, but would have to be only once they are in full swing production wise - im sure they will get there. Didn't the same shindig happen with the early Model S cars... faults reported, then they sorted it all out? Even the first Leaf's were not great. I tend to go for cars towards the ...

Re: Tesla Model 3

Tesla 3 teardown: Some of the comments about build quality are worrisome to me. Clearly, this car remains stuck somewhere between pre-production and mass production still. I suspect that when Tesla has cleared the backlog of pre-orders from the poor souls that get the first wave, they will produce ...
