Re: Hyundai Kona EV

I should have been a little more clear. I was referring to the smaller battery range . 39.2 kWh battery – 300 km (186 miles) range (WLTP) I'm a little skeptical on how accurate the WLTP ratings are. & also need to allow for any possible battery degradation over time. I personally need for my max...

Re: Tesla Model 3

I understand that these people are highly regarded in the auto industry but I can see some old-world resistance to change. After viewing this video several times, it is quite apparent that the only thing he and I share are the same first name. His immediate attitude (snickering and negative comments...

Re: Friction brakes issue- 100% braking force - calipers?

Your warning light experience sounds familiar to the problem I had.
Keep in mind that my Miev is a 2014 North American edition..

Did you watch the video recordings of my problem from my posting that you linked to above?
How does it compare to your problem?

Re: wanted: Flap/cover for J1772 level 2 port on 2012

Hi Sean , I have experienced the flap cover breaking off and had to make a substitute cover. I don't think it is sold separately. This occurred when i put the car into drive while it was plugged in . It would not go forward but since I was parked on a slope , it rolled forward and ripped the pistol ...
