You might want to ensure that Mitsubishi has your current ownership and contact information.

Yes there is a white label on the top cover--lift the cover under the rear carpet to see the OBC on the left and the MCU on the right. The label has the Mits p/n and the Nichicon model number and manu date.

The replacement charger that I just got after 6 weeks in the shop bears a manufacture date of June 12, 2018. The dealer claimed a “supply shortage”, so it must have taken a slow boat from Japan! Its sticker reads
9481A171 ALL
SERIAL .00038. V100
ZHTP1529R. 2018.06.12

Just found out my Meep will be taking advantage of the extended warranty on the OBC. Took her into my local dealer on Friday, Dec. 18 as it would no longer charge. Woke up in the morning for the drive to work, and my Meep had only about 60% charge left. I figured my wife must not have plugged it in properly the previous night, and I would just charge at work. I got to work and plugged her into a ChargePoint charger and then headed into my office.

About 20 minutes later, I get a text notification from ChargePoint that my vehicle has been plugged in for over 18 minutes but has not yet drawn any power. I go out to the charger to check on my Meep and realize that she's not charging at all! I quickly make a service appointment at my local dealer and have *JUST* enough charge left to make the 13-mile trip and drop her off.

Just got off the phone with the service department. They were waiting on a part to arrive for the AC-to-DC converter. It just got in today. They should have it installed and my Meep back to me either tomorrow or Thursday. Service Tech advised there was a TSB out for this part, and it would all be covered under warranty.

Not sure how much the new part they ordered runs, but so far, I have had well over half the purchase price of my Meep in warranty repairs!
