I thought the only authorized service centers were on the west coast. Admittedly, the i-MiEV population (and related service staff experience) is pretty thin, but at least you have factory trained, authorized, and supported facilities for it.

I most certainly will. Owning it for just 7 weeks now I can tell you I love the torque and the 110 mile range I'm getting with it!!! I like how it drives on the highway at highway speeds of 55mph and love the cruise control. The i-MiEV would do it but always seemed like to me it didn't like doing it. The things I miss on the Spark that the i-MiEV had was the back-up camera, Navigation and CD player.
The iMiEV is just plain amazing when compared to most any other small car - Smaller on the outside yet bigger on the inside and with a much longer wheelbase which gives better performance and a better ride . . . . not as 'twichy' at high speeds on the freeway, especially when the wind is blowingPV1 wrote:I looked at a Spark ICE model before buying the i-MiEV. The i-MiEV definitely has more room in it . . . .
